ooking for the premier destination for amateur, youth, and recreational sports in the state of Texas? Look no further than Round Rock! Fueled by an economy that includes the headquarters of Dell and Emerson, Round Rock has continued to invest millions to build first-class sports facilities with the perfect infrastructure for any event, including great hotels, plenty of entertainment, fine dining, shopping, and an overall unforgettable experience for the players and their families. Over the years, Round Rock has poured tens of millions of dollars into its sports facilities that have earned it the "Sports Capital of Texas" reputation. These include the Round Rock Sports Center, a world-class indoor showcase facility, Old Settlers Park, the city's crown jewel of the park system with 645 acres of outdoor sports fields, and the newly opened Round Rock Multipurpose Complex, a state-of-the-art venue with 10 new multipurpose fields. Because of these facilities, Round Rock has the capacity to host almost any sport and is always continuing to grow their capabilities. Round Rock has hosted over 57 events in the last year of all shapes and sizes with over 39,500 participants. Basketball, football, soccer, lacrosse, fencing, volleyball, softball, quidditch, table tennis, ultimate and rugby are just a few of the sports events Round Rock is equipped to host. Sports isn't the only thing that's big in Round Rock, Kalahari Resorts and Conventions announced that it would be building a nearly 1,000 room resort and convention center in the fall of 2020! The resort will be right across the street from the Dell Diamond and Old Settlers Park. This is a game changer for The Sports Capital of Texas, as teams and fans will have ample amenities to stay and play in this tremendous resort with the largest indoor waterpark in the nation. The African themed resort will be a great addition to the 28 hotels that currently call Round Rock home. Round Rock is conveniently located just 15 miles north of Austin and less than 3 hours from three of the 10 biggest cities in the United States, making it easily accessible for your team. The friendly Sports Tourism team in Round Rock will help make sure your event hits it out of the park so you can breathe easy and enjoy the big game. L Round Rock Is The Sports Capital Of Texas!! Sponsored Content '' Round Rock Multipurpose Complex Get To Know Nancy Yawn, Director, Round Rock CVB "We're proud to be the Sports Capital of Texas for youth, amateur, and recreational sports because we have tournament class facilities, athlete-friendly lodging and dining, and we're located in the heart of Texas!" Destination SPOTLIGHT (512) 218-7094 nyawn@roundrocktexas.gov www.sportscapitaloftexas.com "We chose the Round Rock Multipurpose Complex for this event because it exceeds both our quality and quantity expectations. Collegiate level play requires first-rate field conditions and larger field dimensions than most venues can accommodate. In addition to the quality of the sports complex, having enough fields for all games, practice areas and a championship setting all in one location is a win for us overall. We knew that this was a place we wanted to bring the WCLA National Tournament, and we feel confident our partici- pants will feel the same." — Kim Rogers, Director of Special Events, US Lacrosse '' "We are so excited to be able to come to Round Rock again, especially after such a successful tournament in 2016. It is called the Sports Capital of Texas and we see very much why that is the case. Round Rock provides what I like to say is the best recipe for sports tournament success: great hospitality, great venues and great people!" — Willy Leparulo, Board of Directors President, National Collegiate Table Tennis Association
