Owner description: Hinkle Fieldhouse has reigned as one of the nation's great sports arenas for more than eight decades. The classic facility was constructed in 1928 and it has stood up to the test of time, maintaining the splendor, character and atmosphere that made it one of the nation's most famous basketball arenas for nearly a century. Hinkle Fieldhouse was home to Indiana High School basketball's "Hoosier Hysteria" tournament until 1971 and is currently home to Butler basketball and volleyball. The current capacity after the most recent renovation is 9,100. The Fieldhouse was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983, and declared a National Historic Landmark in 1987. Hinkle is open during regular business hours Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for free self-guided tours. Tickets are required for home athletic contests.

“Great venue. Butler basketball makes it even better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

What a great tradition still functioning old field house. Went for a Butler regular season game. Even the top rows have a pretty good view.

“Legendary Basketball Icon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

This is a basketball junkies must see. Hoosiers comes to life here--and the Butler team has only added to the legend.

“The Hallowed Grounds of Hoosier Hysteria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

To watch a game of basketball in the confines of Hinkle Fieldhouse at Butler University should be on the bucket list of every serious fan. And the successfull Butler Bulldogs makes it double. There is really no better place to watch the game much less play the game.

What a place to watch a ballgame. It has a lot of the things that make great memories, but now updated. Butler basketball is great to watch.
