Gatlinburg Sports Complex Sees Record Numbers In First Year

Just six months after opening our brand new Gatlinburg sports complex, we at Rocky Top Sports World are happy to announce that we are on track to exceed our first-year predictions by over 46 percent. We have already hosted a total of 26 different tournaments, and we are looking forward to what the future will bring.

Outside of providing young athletes a state-of-the-art facility to play in, the best part of our Gatlinburg sports complex’s success lies in the positive impact it brings to the Gatlinburg and Smoky Mountain community. In our first year alone, we are projected to have a positive impact between $10 million and $14 million. This also equates to roughly 15,000 room nights rented, as well as an increase in traffic to local restaurants and attractions during the players’ stay.

Rocky Top Sports World opened in July 2014. Here, we offer a total of seven outdoor fields and an 86,000 square-foot indoor facility. Volleyball, football, basketball, lacrosse, soccer, wrestling, and gymnastics are just an example of all the different sports competitions we can accommodate.

In addition to providing a deluxe sporting venue for teams to compete in, we also offer space for birthday parties, corporate functions, family reunions, and much more.
