With over 40,000 square feet of floor space, the Walter Pyramid can accommodate up to 5 basketball courts or 9 volleyball courts and the unique bleacher design allows for a wide range of arena configurations. The open structure creates a large arena environment with a functional capacity of 5,000 seats. Additionally, the Walter Pyramid has ample parking, an in- house box office, hospitality room, wide concourses for vendor and exhibitor display, professional grade locker room facilities and turnkey TV production capabilities. Additionally, recent improvements to the Walter Pyramid include a new Daktronics videoboard (the largest videoboard in an on- campus, collegiate arena in the country), LED arena lighting to allow for show scripting, free wifi, and a new maple wood playing court. There is pedigree for this venue as the Beach Athletics program has dominated the Big West Conference, winning 8 of the last 12 Commissioner's Cups and is nationally known as a volleyball powerhouse (men, women and beach). The Walter Pyramid has long been home to the IBJJF World Jiu Jitsu Championship, the Long Beach Step Show, the Special Olympics Southern California Summer Games and the Jimmy Kim Taekwondo Tournament.
