1. Chance to Play New Teams

teams competing at Smoky Mountain classic basketball tournamentWe love it when teams and organizations choose to plan a Smoky Mountain basketball tournament at Rocky Top Sports World because we know it means teams from all across the United States will get the chance to experience our scenic mountain area. This is thanks in part to the state-of-the-art facilities we offer, but also thanks to the fact we are located within a day’s drive of 66% of all families in the United States. Meaning, teams and competitors won’t have to travel too far to compete in your tournament, thus increasing the appeal of your competition.

From a tournament organizer’s standpoint, this is good because it means you will have more teams entering your tournament. As an athlete, this is also great because it gives you the chance to play against new teams you may not otherwise have the chance to. Not only will this improve your skills as a competitor, but it will also help improve your social skills as well.

At Rocky Top Sports World, we offer 6 full-sized, hardwood basketball courts, plus 4 additional courts on site. This means you will have plenty of space to accommodate the teams that come and compete in your Smoky Mountain classic basketball tournament.

In addition, you can convert our basketball courts to fit any needs your tournament may have. For example, if you plan on only doing half court games or you want to split the courts up between practice areas and tournament areas, you have the option.

3. Bleacher Seating

This is great for parents, athletes and scouts to comfortably watch the game.

Success in a tournament comes from preparation both on and off the court. You can increase the appeal of your Smoky Mountain basketball classic tournament by reminding teams that they will have access to one of the three private team rooms located in our facility.

These rooms give team members a chance to sit down and strategize plays and talk with one another before taking the court in their next game.

In addition to the private team rooms, athletes will also have access to our locker rooms to get ready and wash up after the tournament.

5. On-Site Concession
