Place to Play for Inner City Youth Features Two Varco Pruden Buildings

Ministry through sports for inner city youth is the aim of the Sansom Sports Complex in Knoxville, Tennessee. Located on a 14-acre former industrial site near World’s Fair Park, the the center includes synthetic turf fields, a pavilion-covered turf field, and a field house with a performance-training center. Facilities have been created for basketball, baseball, volleyball, swimming and soccer, with soccer as the centerpiece since Knoxville is home to a strong international community of soccer players.  

The two buildings on the site are Varco Pruden metal buildings: a 21,600 square foot open-walled pavilion and 5,000 square foot performance training center for concessions, lockers and workout. 

Varco Pruden helped fulfill years of planning with these two buildings in Knoxville: a large pavilion for a covered soccer field and a top-notch performance training center.
