E.A. Diddle Arena

1605 Avenue of Champions | Bowling Green, KY 42101

E. A. Diddle Arena is a 7,326-seat multi-purpose arena on the campus of Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green. The arena, built in 1963, is home to the WKU Hilltoppers men's basketball team and Lady Toppers basketball and volleyball teams.

In 2002 a $32 million renovation was completed which reduced seating capacity to 7,381. The renovation also included: 16 luxury suites, all-new seating, two video boards, new concession and restroom areas, new playing floor, elevator access to all levels, new sound and lighting systems, two new auxiliary gyms totaling 30,000 square feet, new training and weight rooms, air-conditioning, and new locker and office space complex facilities.

The renovation has been the focal point of WKU's extensive athletic complex makeover which has also included numerous enhancements to baseball's Nick Denes Field, the construction of the softball and soccer complex on Creason Drive and the expansion to football's Houchens Industries-L.T. Smith Stadium.
