Langley Events Centre

Friday night's basketball contest against the Simon Fraser University Clan marked the end of an era for Trinity Western University and the Spartans as next season, 2009-2010, TWU will be playing their home games at the soon to be completed Langley Event Centre. So on January 30, 2009, after 40 years of faithful service, the David E. Enarson Gym was the final graduating senior of the class of 2008-2009. "Dave would have been very proud to be here tonight to witness this goodbye," commented Dan Enarson, son of David E. Enarson.

The 2000-seat triple gymnasium and sport facility, part of a development that includes a 3500-seat ice arena and surrounding park area, represents a significant partnership between the Township of Langley, Langley Development Group, and TWU. “Every major city in the country is linked to or associated with a university,” says Blair Whitmarsh, Ph.D, dean of TWU’s School of Human Kinetics. “This partnership affirms TWU as being here for the Langley community and provides a facility in which we can train high-level athletes and help expand and enhance Spartan Athletics on behalf of the University.”
