Here's the Scoop on the Gilbert Sports and Fitness Center at Cal Lutheran University

Located at California Lutheran University here in Thousand Oaks, the Gilbert Sports and Fitness Center is home to the Kingsmen Men's Basketball, Regals Women's Basketball and Volleyball teams.

This $18 million, 96,000 sq ft facility that opened in August 2006 was named after its primary donors, John "Jack" Gilbert and his wife Carol. Jack passed away on August 2, 2012 at the age of 91. Gilbert was chairman of the board of Zero Corp. and, later, TOLD Corp., a former member of the CLU Board of Regents, a self-made, self-educated entrepreneur, and the owner of one of the first Social Security cards issued in 1936. He was the first recipient of the Hall of Fame Award presented by the Ventura County Economic Development Association in 1989 and, in 2010, was inducted into the Tri-County Business Hall of Fame. He received an Honorary Doctor of Laws from CLU in 1990.

In addition to CLU sporting events, the Gilbert Arena is also available for rentals. The facility has a capacity of 2,200 and can be rented for concerts, banquets, weddings, conferences, team practices and more. Visit awww.callutheran.edu/event_services/venues for more information.
