Connect Sports: Rocky Top Sports World Among Best Basketball Venues in United States

Indoor basketball court at Rocky Top Sports World

Although we have only been open a few short months, we at Rocky Top Sports World could not be happier about all the positive responses our Gatlinburg sports complex has received. Included in all of the positive attention is Connect Sports naming us one of the best basketball venues in the United States.

Known as an industry leader in youth sports events and information, Connect Sports recently released a list of what they consider to be the top 6 basketball courts in the country. At Rocky Top Sports World, we were elated to see our Gatlinburg basketball courts rounding out the list.

A few of the amenities found at our Gatlinburg sports complex that Connect Sports pointed out as what they liked most about us include our 86,000 square-foot indoor multisport and events center, our six hardwood basketball courts with bleacher seating, three private team rooms, our variety of message boards spread throughout the facility and our Champ’s Grill refreshment area.

When making their list, staff with Connect Sports enlisted the help from members with the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU). With their help, Connect Sports was able to narrow down all the youth sports complexes in the United States to find the best ones that could accommodate all the needs of amateur athletes. Experts who gave their opinion include AAU director of basketball Stan Quash, Jam On It Basketball Academy CEO Matt Williams and AAU senior sports manager Kristy Sampson.
