Pinki Cultural and Sports Center (Serbian Cyrillic : Културно спортски центар Пинки), commonly known as Pinki Hall (Serbian Cyrillic : Хала Пинки), is an indoor multi-sports venue located in Belgrade's municipality of Zemun, Serbia. The venue has an indoor hall and an indoor swimming pool. The hall has a seating capacity of 2,300 for sports events and around 5,000 for concerts.


Opened on 21 October 1974, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of Zemun being liberated from the Nazis and their puppet state Independent State of Croatia, the hall has hosted various basketball, handball, and volleyball teams. Its initial full official name was Dom sportova, omladine i pionira Pinki (Pinki Hall of Sports, Youth, and Pioneers). It now mostly serves for recreational use. It is the only sports venue in the city of Belgrade not financed by the city government, because Zemun's municipal government headed by the Serbian Radical Party (SRS) in 2000 transformed the venue's controlling entity into a publicly traded company and sold the controlling stake (49%) to Naftna industrija Srbije (NIS) oil company.[ citation needed ]

The venue is named after Boško Palkovljević Pinki, a prominent Partisan fighter during World War II in Yugoslavia and a People's Hero of Yugoslavia.
