Why Play Here

Dothan is south Alabama’s premier sports destination.  Our city parks have hosted national events for USTA, USA BMX, and Dixie Youth Baseball and Softball.  No matter what your sport of choice is, we have the right space for you in over 700 acres of designated park.  Choose from 47 professional grade tennis courts, 31 baseball and softball fields, 6 soccer fields, an indoor Olympic sized pool, a killer BMX track, and so much more.  Our Visit Dothan staff will work directly with our city park officials to book your tournament and help you choose host hotels for all your athletes and their families.


Don’t count us out just because our city is small. We’ve got big personality that leads to big hospitality. Our hotels want to be the host for your athletes to rest, and they don’t mind a little field dirt on the carpet. Our restaurants make room for your table to refuel after the big game. And don’t forget that there is plenty to do in Dothan when you’re not on the court or in the pool. Our Visit Dothan staff will customize a kit for your tournament that you can send to all your participants so they don’t miss a thing about our great city! We know you’re ready to book your tournament with us. Download our Request for Proposal form to tell us all the details of your event, and we will start the process with our city parks and our area hotels.Still on the fence? That’s ok! Call our Visit Dothan staff and ask us any questions you might have. We want your sports event to make a lasting impression on your athletes and for you to return year after year with your tournament.

Chief Eufaula: Creek Indian Removal

The Creek Indians, united in a loose confederacy known as the Creek Confederacy, occupied most of what is now Georgia and Alabama, as well as parts of surrounding states.  By the mid-1830s, Creek leaders had ceded all but a small portion of their remaining lands in Alabama, and following the Second Creek War, they were forced to relocate to lands in the Indian Territory, present-day Oklahoma.  Before their removal, Chief Eufaula addressed the Alabama state legislature, saying, “I do not believe our Great Father means to harm his red children, but that he wishes us well.”
