The city of North Charleston celebrated the grand opening of its new sports facility on Thursday, marking a significant addition to the community’s recreational offerings.

With a $25 million investment from the city, the North Charleston Sports Complex has emerged as a modern sports amenity, replacing the former Danny Jones Athletic Center that was demolished over a year ago. The complex boasts a 25-meter competitive pool and a versatile multi-use gymnasium designed for basketball, volleyball, and badminton enthusiasts. Additionally, visitors can take advantage of the five outdoor tennis courts, a multi-use roller rink, and a spacious playing field.

City officials emphasize that this new facility will elevate North Charleston’s status as a premier destination for sporting events. They anticipate a boost to the local economy through increased sports tourism, as the complex is poised to attract regional and national tournaments to the city.

The center welcomed visitors for tours until 7 p.m. on Thursday, offering a glimpse into its impressive amenities. Community members can look forward to utilizing the tennis courts and roller rinks starting Friday, with the full facility officially opening its doors on Monday for all to enjoy.
