Additional Product Information

The Palestra opened in 1927 and was named by Professor William N. Bates after the ancient Greek word "palaestra," which was a public rectangular room in which athletes, especially wrestlers, practiced and competed. The Palestra is home to the University of Pennsylvania's basketball, volleyball and wrestling teams. It has hosted more games, visiting teams and NCAA Tournaments than any other arena and was the original site of the Philadelphia Big 5 intra-city conference featuring Penn, Saint Joseph's, Temple, La Salle, and Villanova. The Palestra has been integral to the history of college basketball and described as "one of the true gems of the sports world, right up there with Wrigley Field" by Basketball Analyst, Jay Bilas.
