The Team Automotive Group Sports Complex will include three tournament-play basketball courts, six youth basketball courts, 12 basketball half courts and five competition volleyball courts, according to a BREC press release.
The center also will feature computer scoring, video capture and viewing, high-speed internet, retractable bleachers to seat 900, a 1,500-square-foot players’ lounge and a 500-square-foot concession area.
The project is a joint effort between the Recreation and Park Commission for the Parish of East Baton Rouge and the Baton Rouge Basketball and Volleyball Association Inc.
