Sports tourism has become a major player along the Grand Strand, with tournaments and clinics welcoming young athletes and their families from around the U.S., and plenty of local public sports leagues that compete at area field

Because we are blessed as a sports tourism region, the Grand Strand is loaded with recreational opportunities for visitors and locals, and especially their children. Softball, baseball, basketball, lacrosse, soccer, rugby and more are available at massive sports complexes in Myrtle Beach at Grand Park Athletic Complex in The Market Common, John T. Rhodes Myrtle Beach Sports Complex, Pepper Geddings Recreation Center in Myrtle Beach, the Ripkin Experience in Myrtle Beach, the North Myrtle Beach Aquatic and Fitness Center, the North Myrtle Beach Park & Sports Complex, and at other locations around the region.
