John Paul Jones Arena

295 Massie Road
Charlottesville, Virginia 22903

John Paul Jones Arena is the largest of several arenas on the grounds of the University of Virginia. It's primarily used as the site for UVA Cavalier/Wahoo basketball games, as well as for concerts. It's named after the father of Paul Tudor Jones II, who donated $35 million toward the building's construction. When it opened in 2006 it increased the available seating for basketball games to over 14,500 vs the 8,500+ at University Hall across the street. Both "U Hall" and it's predecessor Memorial Gym ("Mem Gym") are still standing and in use.
