Auburn Tigers Women's Gymnastics TicketsLike many women's collegiate sports, the women's gymnastics program gained momentum after the enactment of Title IX, which laid out rules for gender equality in collegiate sports. The Tigers have reached new levels of success in the last decade under Coach Jeff Graba. Under his leadership, the team was able to gain a spot in the Regionals and later won a National Championship title. Fans enjoy the home meets at Auburn Arena, which was built in 2010, the same year Coach Graba came to Auburn. Every year sees an increase in attendance for the Tigers gymnastics events, and the modern arena is well-suited for the crowds. The season often starts with an invitational meet and then ratchets up the action with competitions against fellow SEC members.
