Signs a Sports Facility Can’t Meet Your Needs

How You’ll Know a Sports Facility is Lacking

You expect a sports facility to offer certain accommodations when you’re looking to hold tournaments, practices, or leagues there. Not all facilities, for instance, offer the space, catering options, and versatility of Rocky Mount Event Center. Certain facilities may have several warning signs that they lack something that could make your event pop. Today in the Rocky Mount Event Center blog, we’ll talk about some of these warning signs and what you should look out for when choosing a sports facility.

The Courts Aren’t Up to Par

The first thing you’ll need to hold a basketball or volleyball tournament is a decent set of courts. If a sports facility doesn’t have enough courts, or worse, the courts are poorly maintained, it’s not a facility that’s going to meet your needs. You will also need to make sure the facility has enough seats to accommodate the amount of people you expect to be attending the sports event. Not all facilities are equipped for this, so you’ll want to make sure before booking.

The Staff Isn’t Helpful

If you’re planning on holding a sporting event at a sports facility, you’re going to need some help from their event staff. A staff member should be able to help you every step of the way, answering any questions you may have. A business is built on customer service, and if the sports facility you’ve chosen has unhelpful, unwilling staff, it’s not going to be the best choice for you. It will only lead to difficulties down the line when the event gets closer.

There Aren’t Any Amenities

There’s nothing wrong with a sports facility that only has the courts and the seating you need for a tournament, but it’s nice to have some other amenities, too. For instance, you’ll most likely want to have concessions and locker rooms. Some sports facilities offer even more than this. Rocky Mount Event Center has things like the Family Fun Zone, where kids can play if they don’t want to watch the tournaments. Although extra amenities like this aren’t exactly necessary, they add a special level of excitement to your event.
