More data: Rethymno Municipal Indoor Hall is named after Melina Merkouri, a famous Greek actress and politician. The hall has hosted the final phase of the 2007 European Championship for Men Under-16. This, along with the fact that AGO Rethymno B.C. were promoted for the first time to the A1 Division, were the reasons behind a small scale renovation of the hall that took place in the summer and autumn of 2007. These works included the installation of new stands, which added roughly 500 seats to the hall's capacity.

The hall is owned by the Municipality of Rethymno.
Many thanks to the Municipality of Rethymno for the kind offer of the two last photographs.
