florence, sc: the amateur sports destination of the southeast
The new 30-court Dr. Eddie Floyd Florence Tennis Center was named the South Carolina Tennis Facility of the Year. Florence hosts the USTA SC Mixed Doubles State Championship.
The City of Florence broke ground on two new sport complexes in 2016. In April 2016, officials broke ground on a $5 million gym that will feature three basketball courts. It will sit on Barnes Street near downtown. Officials also broke ground in May 2016 on a $7 million, 14 field soccer complex near the intersection of I-95 and U.S. 76.
The racing tradition runs deep throughout the Pee Dee region of South Carolina. The most notable racing attraction in SC is Darlington Raceway, home to the track that's "Too Tough to Tame." Join in the excitement on Labor Day weekend with the NASCAR XFINITY Series VFW Sport Clips Help A Hero 200 and the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Bojangles' Southern 500 as well as the Darlington Car Hauler Parade and Festival.
