I've gone MANY different size rig in a Gym that size.  Anywhere from 6 SRX712 set-up as delays to 6 per side VTX arrays.  But typically it is the powered VRX932 system.  If its long throw, then 2 sticks of 2x VRX and if set-up wide, then its 4 sticks of 2x VRX..

The first step is determine your budget.  Don't forget to include the supplement parts; cables, stands and power.

Where the seating is flat (gym floor and not bleachers) my go to rig is K array KR200 or the newer KR202.  I have a lot of other choices but in that specific application nothing else works as well for me.  With a 2M long "line source" the narrow vertical coverage works really well.  Easy set up and simple to use, but you have to find the setting that sounds best - "Dark" on my 200 series.  Then a little EQ in the 1K to 2.5K and its good to go.  Some of the other selectable presets are pretty bad in my opinion.   Stearable options like RH Iconic and other "line source" type speakers would probably also work well.

I've worked with the CBT1000 in the past and it is an impressive box, this is going to be for portable use and not a fixed install. I'm not aware of a pole mount for them but that could have changed.

Probably not very difficult to invent a pole mount.  For spoken word in a reverberant space, a column speaker is usually a great choice.

Get the speakers as high as you can and tilt them down. Aim them at the people not the walls. Get better speaker stands then one would normally use, ones that allow for more height. Use a set of speaker tilters. I recommend this set http://www.bt-12.com/about.php Not cheap but worth the price. it maintains the center of gravity and makes it very easy to adjust the tilt with the speaker on it.
