Sartain Hall is a 4,000-seat multi-purpose arena in Troy, Alabama. It was home to the Troy University Trojans basketball team until Trojan Arena opened in 2012. It opened in 1962.

The building was built as a new Physical Education Building in 1962, with its major facility being a 2,500-seat basketball gymnasium which was ready for the first basketball game that fall. [1]

Before Sartain Hall, the university never previously had an adequate gymnasium, and the college administration had the foresight at the time to make it available for high school basketball tournaments as well as college games and tournaments. The building is named in honor of the late Professor Auxford Sartain. [2]

In 1999, the building was renamed Trojan Arena, but went back to its original name in Summer 2010 when the new Trojan Arena underwent construction. [3]

The building has hosted many events, from college basketball games to high school basketball games to graduations to the Harlem Globetrotters. Over its time, the building has become a staple of history in the lore of Troy University athletics. [4]
