Titan Gym is a 4,000 seat, indoor multi-purpose stadium on the campus of California State University, Fullerton in Fullerton, California.

History and renovations[edit]

Exterior of Titan Gym

Titan Gym was built in 1964.[1] Twenty years later, the gym hosted handball competitions for the 1984 Summer Olympics.[2][3] Olympic athletes haven't been the only famous people to grace Titan Gym though. Ronald Reagan spoke on behalf of the Bush/Quayle campaign in 1988, his last Orange County appearance as President of the United States.[2]

In order to combat the old age, as well as wear and tear, on Titan Gym there have been a number of recent improvements made. Bleachers, which were used to seat the attendees, have been replaced with chair-back seats. The floor was completely redesigned and resurfaced. A new scoreboard was unveiled before the 2003 season and additional balcony seating was added before the start of the 2004 season.

For the Cal State Fullerton Titans athletes, Titan Gym is the home to a practice floor for the basketball and volleyball programs as well as additional practice rooms for wrestling, women's gymnastics, and fencing.

Future renovation plans include an expansion of the Titan Gym entrance to include a Titans Hall of Fame as well as a reception area for social functions.

Tenants[edit]

Currently the men's basketball, women's basketball, women's volleyball, and wrestling teams call Titan Gym home. The men's basketball team has played every season at Titan Gym since its opening in 1964.
