Sports*Com, located at 2310 Memorial Blvd., will be closing during the months of March and April to complete interior renovations and expansion of the facility. The scheduled re-opening is anticipated for May 1, 2015.

"We realize that closing for two months is an inconvenience for our loyal customers," said City Parks and Recreation Director Lanny Goodwin. "With a bit of patience these upgrades are going to improve the amenities of Sports*Com and provide expanded recreation for the residents of Murfreesboro. We encourage patrons to utilize the Patterson Park Community Center and McFadden Community Center during the two-month closure."


Interior electrical work in March and April will require shutting down the Heating Ventilation and Air-conditioning system and installing an elevator. Not having air-conditioning, lighting and the amount of building disturbance required to install an elevator are safety issues that require restricted access to construction workers-only.

The 3000 square foot expansion to the existing Sports*Com building and renovation includes a newly expanded wellness and fitness area at the front of the facility, resurfacing of the basketball court and track area, upgrades to locker rooms and restrooms, improved lighting, and a new roof and Heating Ventilation and Air-conditioning system. Sports*Com was built in 1987.


The Murfreesboro City Council voted unanimously Oct. 2, 2014, to approve a $2.7 million dollar plan to expand and renovate Sports*Com. Baron Construction, LLC was authorized to perform the work after submitting the low bid. Alternate renovations were added to the initial base bid of $2.4 million dollars, including refinishing the gym floor ($28,990), resurfacing the indoor track ($50,221), and revisions to the outdoor pool concession area ($72,165), replacing air ducts to the indoor pool ($23,458), and installation of a new water line to McKnight Park ($109,288).

Bids for the renovation to Sports*Com were opened September 11, 2014. The low bid of five bids was received from Baron Construction with Johnson & Bailey Architects, P.C recommending acceptance.

Patterson Community Center, located at 521 Mercury Blvd., is open Mon. - Fri., 6 a.m. - 9 p.m., Sat., 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Sun., 1- 5 p.m. and McFadden Community Center, located at 211 Bridge Ave., is open Mon. - Fri., 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.

This is what the finished remodel will look like.
