My family stopped by on our recent trip to Indy. You will never forget steeping onto that court for the first time. It is amazing. There isn't much to do other than explore, but it was a perfect bit of nostaglia. Stop by and feel the magic.

Have seen multiple games in here - it's like a high school gym with bleachers, no air conditioning, etc. - can get quite hot. Cool to see if you're a fan of the movie Hoosiers or Indiana traditional basketball

Hinkle Fieldhouse is not only home to my Butler Bulldogs, but also the site of the final game in the movie Hoosiers. College hoops fans should definitely make the pilgrimage to see the fieldhouse. Recent renovations did not disrupt its charm!

Very cozy and warm place to see basketball. Not a bad seat in the house. Went there for the NCAA three point and slam dunk challenge. Fun was had by all. Great venue.

While visiting Indy, we stopped by Butler University. After walking the campus, we walked over to Hinkle Fieldhouse. It's a big, old-fashioned, "barn." Unlike more modern gyms, this has lots of character. There's a display of memorabilia in the concourse area. Includes memorabilia from the movie "Hoosiers" which was filmed here. Basketball fans and movie buffs will love this.

This place redefines the definition of nosebleed seats. They were awkward and very high. Not too much fan interaction as some other stadiums. No free t-shirts being shot out, etc. Say a Pacers game. Would not return for another.

I'm an old soul, or so I've been told. I enjoy the older things, the vintage, and the classic. It doesn't get more classic than Hinkle. Went to a Saturday afternoon game. The place was almost packed and loud as loud could be. The student section makes the game feel like a high school game and the facilities make it... More

We took our grandson to a Butler Basketball game in the newly renovated Hinkle Fieldhouse. I'm an alum and sat in the section reserved for alumni. We had visited Hinkle many times before but were so impressed with the renovation that kept the historic feel and made the seating more comfortable.
