Sports & Recreation

You might know that Fayetteville is home to the Arkansas Razorbacks, but it’s also consistently ranked the #1 place to live in the SEC! Whether it’s football, baseball, basketball, volleyball or any of the other 11 sports at the University of Arkansas, die-hard fans pack the stadium rain or shine to call the Hogs. Our city’s enthusiasm for sports goes beyond college team spirit, too – we’re home to the NWA Roller Derby, future host of the 2022 Walmart UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships, and a disc golfer’s paradise. Wherever and whatever you want to play, we can help you find it in Fayetteville!

Fayetteville is the ideal backdrop to host sporting events of all kinds and sizes. The north-south Interstate I-49 connects the largest towns in the region and expands the possibilities for larger events. We have the facilities, the know-how and all the resources to knock your sporting event out of the park. Interested in bringing your event to our incredible city? Connect with us.

Big Dog Volleyball Tournament

There’s that colorful old saying, “If you can’t run with the big dogs, stay on the porch,” but in this particular case, you can play with the big dogs if you’re willing to leave the porch and head to the volleyball court! Ozark Volleyball Club, an adult volleyball club for players at all skill levels, is based in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and will be hosting the Big Dog 2021 doubles volleyball tourney for both men and women. The purse is a hefty $8,000 and there are both “Open” and “A” divisions. Cash and prizes will go to first, second and third place teams in the “Open” division; cash will be awarded to the first-place team and prizes to the second-place team in the “A” division.
