Welcome to the Home of the Battling Bishops! Everett Gymnasium and the adjoining Taylor Center house the offices of the North Carolina Wesleyan Department of Athletics and the Exercise Science faculty members.
Built in 1963, the main gymnasium is the home of Don Scalf Court and seats up to 1,200 people. Everett provides a great homecourt advantage for three Bishop squads: men’s basketball, women’s basketball, and women's volleyball.
The Bishop men’s basketball team plays an aggressive, fast tempo game that makes it a threat to all opponents, while the Battling Bishop women have combined with the men’s squad to capture 12 USA South Athletic Conference (formerly Dixie) regular season and/or tournament championships.
The volleyball team also calls Everett home and consists of outstanding female athletes who not only are successful on the court, but are top-notch competitors in the classroom as well. The gym proudly displays numerous banners earned by our various Bishop athletic squads over the years.
