July 2018: Despite treacherous conditions that slowed progress during the winter months, the Hopkinsville Sportsplex has hit its stride on the construction end and is quickly taking shape on Tiller Way. Once completed, with an estimated completion date of October 2018, the 54,000-square foot Sportsplex will become one of the region’s premier multipurpose facilities, while allowing Hopkinsville to tap into the $15 billion sports tourism industry. The Sportsplex recently hired its first staff member, as Chris Jung joins the team as the Marketing/Events Coordinator, working primarily to promote the facility and begin booking events, tournaments, leagues and more. Jung’s initial efforts have already spurred social media buzz and elevated awareness of the Sportsplex around the commonwealth. The Sportsplex will also soon seek candidates for the role of Building Supervisor.
