Peterson Gym - San Diego, Ca
Peterson Gym: A Large San Diego Gymnasium for Events of All Types
Once the home to San Diego State University’s basketball team, this 3,668-seat arena is now where the university’s women’s volleyball team plays their home games. It’s a multi-purpose arena, suitable for many different types of sporting events. It could be considered either a large gymnasium or a small arena, so if you’re looking for a San Diego venue that’s an “in-between” size, the Peterson Gym might be just the space for your event.
Available for Basketball Events During Basketball Season!
One of the best things about the Peterson Gym is that it’s a collegiate-level gym that isn’t used by any of the university’s basketball teams. This means that, unlike other San Diego gymnasiums of its size, it is regularly available to host basketball games during basketball season. It can be virtually impossible to book a high school or college gym on a Friday or Saturday night between the months of November and March, but the Peterson gym has scheduling flexibility during these months that is difficult to find elsewhere.
Not Just a San Diego Basketball or Volleyball Venue
Though the facility was built with basketball and volleyball events in mind, Peterson Gym has also been used for things other than just basketball or volleyball games, tournaments or camps in San Diego. It has hosted events as diverse as hackathons, cheerleading competitions, eSports tournaments, and even a recruitment event for NASCAR pit crew members. It would also be a great venue for a martial arts tournament or a CrossFit competition, given its generous floor space and spectator seating.
Peterson Gym Features
Peterson Gym has some great amenities that would be attractive to many types of event organizers. The bleachers in the arena are retractable, making it an adaptable space able to handle various seating configurations. The gym has a nice courtyard that can be used for vendor and concessions activations. It is also located directly next to the Aztec Center on the San Diego State Campus, in case additional court space is needed.

Accommodations for Out-of-Town Event Participants
Because the Peterson Gym is located on the San Diego State University campus, Stylehawk can also help event organizers contract with the university for the use of their dining facilities and their on-campus housing options. From late June to mid-August, San Diego State can house and feed up to 4,000 of your event participants. Stylehawk is able to help you secure a package rate that includes the use of the Peterson Gym, on-campus housing, all-you-can-eat meals in one of the university’s dining rooms, and access to their wellness facilities.
Conveniently Located San Diego Sports Arena for Rent
The Peterson Gym is located on the west side of San Diego State’s campus. The university itself is just a 15-minute drive from downtown San Diego and San Diego’s beautiful beaches, with easy freeway access. If your event participants don’t have their own cars, the San Diego Trolley makes one of its regular stops at the campus and can take them to local shopping malls or tourist attractions like historic Old Town San Diego.
