WHO WE ARE

Florence, SC is one of the premier destinations in the Southeast for team and outdoor sports.

Tournaments are serious business for the Florence (SC) Area Sports Council. Girls’ fast-pitch softball, boys’ baseball, men’s slow-pitch softball, youth and adult tennis, summer collegiate baseball, and even canine agility…they start in March and run through October with championships aplenty to cap it off.

Florence hosts so many successful sports events because of its quality facilities. Freedom Florence Recreation Complex has been noted as one of the premier sports complexes in the country. Their 2017 season features over 40 tournaments and includes USSSA, Top Gun and WFC.

The $7 million, 10-field Florence Soccer Complex built in 2017 is ready for play and features regulation-size soccer fields, two of which are lighted. From soccer to lacrosse, the Florence Soccer Complex can accommodate large tournaments for various sports.

The Pearl Moore Gym is the newly-built $5 million three court basketball facility. The gym features three courts, two synthetic floor courts and one wood floor court.  Perfect for pickleball or basketball.

The Dr. Eddie Floyd Florence Tennis Center was named both the USTA South Carolina and USTA Southern Tennis Facility of the Year in 2014. The facility is home to the McLeod for Health Florence Open, a USTA Pro Circuit event and the USTA SC State Mixed Doubles Tournament. The Florence Tennis Association hosts over 20 tournaments annually.

And what would tournaments and championship events be without grand opening ceremonies and gala banquets? That’s the job of the Florence Center, where many of these special events are held. The 10,000-seat arena is perfect for opening ceremonies, and 60,000 square feet of multi-purpose space is excellent for sports conventions. A new ballroom and renovated meeting rooms are perfect for banquets.

Additionally, the Florence Center is home to the 2017 Horseshoe Tour National Championship and the 2018 National Horseshoe Pitchers Association World Tournament.
