Alex G. Spanos Center

A game of Basketball at Alex G. Spanos Center

Alex G. Spanos Center in Stockton

If Baseball and Hockey aren’t for you, then how about a classic game of Basketball? The Alex G. Spanos Centre is a superb Stadium on the beautiful campus of the Univerity of the Pacific. It opened back in 1981 and is currently home to both the Pacific Tigers Men’s and Woman’s basketball teams. It is a little older than the previous stadiums on this list, however, that only adds to its atmospheric charm. It seats just over 6,000 people and is a fantastic venue to spend an evening enjoying a good game of Basketball. There is nothing quite like the sight of a basketball whizzing around the court and the buzzing sound of sneakers squeaking against the floor of the court. The Alex G. Spanos Centre has it all and there really is no better place in town to enjoy this energy.
