The club played in the Palestra "Dante Alighieri" (capacity:300) from 1970 to 1982 and the Palestra "Tenente Alberti" (capacity:800) from 1982 to 1986.

After spending the 1986-87 season in the Marsala based Palasport "Fortunato Bellina" (capacity:600), the side moved back to Trapani in the Palasport "Palagranata" (capacity:3,800) where it stayed until 1997.
