Location: The hall is located in the city of Pyrgos, in the region of Peloponnese, 300 km west of Athens. Pyrgos is only a few km away from ancient Olympia, where the Olympic Games were born in 776 B.C. If you drive to Pyrgos, the indoor hall will be one the first things you'll see coming into the city, as it lies by the Patras-Pyrgos motorway. You will see it on your left, next to the Pyrgos Stadium (just look for the stadium's floodlights as you enter Pyrgos).
|Built in: 1995|
|Home of: Paniliakos (Local amateur league)|
More data: Pyrgos Indoor hall is a modern small arena, with stands on all four sides of the court. Its capacity can be increased to over 3,000, through the addition of an additional movable stand next to the court, below the existing west stand.
The hall has hosted games of the Greek Men's National Basketball Team. It has also been the venue for several important events, including the following:
- The 1998 Greek Volleyball Cup Final-four,
- The 2003 European Basketball Championship for Women (Group-stage games),
- The 2004 European Basketball Championship for Men Under-16 (Group-stage games),
- The 2008 European Basketball Championship for Men Under-18 (Final round),
- The 2011 Greek Basketball All-Star Game.
Pyrgos Indoor Hall is owned by the Municipality of Pyrgos.
