Rocky Top Sports World to Host Varied Schedule of Events
24 Feb, 2015
Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains are proving to be the perfect playground for athletes and coaches across the country, with everything from dodgeball, basketball, flag football and more.
In the upcoming month, Rocky Top Sports World will be hosting a variety of events including the Gatlinburg Futsal Championship, Smoky Mountain Volleyball Challenge, and Southeast Boys College Soccer Showcase. This is in addition to a variety of local programing including dodgeball, 3 on 3 basketball, flag football and family game night.
The facility, which opened in July, 2014, is on track to exceed the first year performance levels by forty-six percent. The venue has hosted 26 events in the first six months of operation, fulfilling the projection goal for the first full year. The City of Gatlinburg and Sevier County selected The Sports Facilities Advisory to supervise planning and opening of the complex. The Sports Facilities Management was chosen to provide administration and oversee daily operation of Rocky Top Sports World. This has proven to be the key to success for surpassing first year goals.
The best-in-class venue, along with area attractions, are driving teams to book Rocky Top Sports World in record numbers. The accelerated number of events and attendees have increased economic impact projections from $10 million to $14 million. The new events also provide an additional 15,000 room nights for the area. “Rocky Top Sports World has been so well received by the community,” stated Gatlinburg Commissioner Mike Werner, “with the venue exceeding expectations, we are excited about the economic impact it will have on Gatlinburg and Sevier County.”
