Sports & Tourism

If you’re a fan of Spring Training, major tennis and other sporting events; or like to have fun at cool regional festivals and events, look no further than the City of Surprise Sports and Tourism Department!

Managing our city’s premier sporting and regional events is what they do!

In addition to marketing Surprise as an intentional sports and tourist destination, the department manages Surprise Stadium and the partnerships with Major League Baseball’s Kansas City Royals and Texas Rangers.

They book awesome USTA and other major tennis events at our award-winning 25-court Tennis & Racquet Complex.

They also take the lead on supporting our multi-level partnership with Ottawa University.

 A long-term goal of the department is to establish partnerships to operate and build new recreational facilities in Surprise.
