aquarium When your team plays in Gatlinburg, they will be just minutes away from all the action in the area. What better way to celebrate a big team win than by treating your players to a trip to Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, one of the country’s most highly rated aquariums. After a busy day at Rocky Top Sports World, your players are bound to work up an appetite! Take the team out for a nice dinner at one of Gatlinburg’s premier restaurants, such as Cherokee Grill or The Park Grill. Many of the local attractions also offer group discounts, which can help coaches and parents keep a little money in their pocket!

4. Play in Any Weather Condition

One of the best features about our Gatlinburg sports complex is that we have both natural playing surfaces and astroturf fields. On nice weather days, the freshly cut grass on the natural fields make for a great playing experience for athletes. In the ideal world, we would never have to worry about rain moving into the area during your match or tournament. However, we know that is not always going to be the case. Luckily, we also have a large selection of artificial turf fields that are made with synthetic fibers. As a result, we are able to play through a little bit of rain, as long as there is no lightning in the area. A little water doesn’t seem to bother the athletes, in fact, they secretly enjoy it!

Now that you know why your team will love playing at Rocky Top Sports World, you are ready to make the trip to the Smoky Mountains to compete! Check our upcoming event calendar to see what events we have coming up in the near future. We hope to see you soon!
