The $14.5 million, 81,500 square foot facility, 2400 Chisholm Trail, will be large enough for six basketball courts or 12 volleyball courts and will provide new marketing opportunities for the City‚Äôs Sports Capitol of Texas tourism program. Last year, the tourism program generated $9.4 million in economic activity in Round Rock.
The indoor facility, which will open in December 2013, will be able to host events such as:
National Table Tennis
Mayor Alan McGraw, City Manager Steve Norwood and Convention and Visitors Bureau Director Nancy Yawn spoke at the ceremony.
Round Rock voters approved an additional 2 percent to the City‚Äôs Hotel Occupancy Tax in a November 2011 election to pay for the facility.
