Largest High School Gyms in the United States

The largest high school basketball gyms in the United States refers to gymnasiums primarily used by secondary schools for basketball purposes. Most of the largest school gyms are located in the state of Indiana,[1] and in 1998 the New York Times reported that 14 of the 16 largest high school gymnasiums were located in that state.[2]

Current list

The top fifteen in total seating capacity are as follows:

  • One other high school-owned facility has a basketball capacity that would place it in this list--the Round Valley Ensphere, at Round Valley High School in Eagar, Arizona. Although it has a maximum capacity of 9,200 for court sports, it is not included in this list because it is a domed football stadium.[9]
  • The Anderson High School Wigwam in Anderson, Indiana, which was the second largest high school gym in the country with a capacity of 8,996, closed in 2011, and remains standing but closed as of August 2016. In August 2014, the school board accepted a plan that will allow for redevelopment of the site while maintaining the gymnasium through at least 2030. When renovations are complete, the school district will have rent-free access to the arena for at least 12 event days per year, plus practices.[10][11]
  • The Muncie Fieldhouse was severely damaged during thunderstorms that took place on November 5th, 2017 and is currently unusable for games until the damage is repaired. [12][13]
