Flexible Indoor Multi-Purpose Courts
The Eugene-Springfield metro area is home to many flexible indoor sports venues with multi-purpose courts and the Eugene, Cascades & Coast Sports Commission is committed to helping sports event planners determine the venues that will help make their events successful.
One of the best multi-sport facilities in the Pacific Northwest, the Bob Keefer Center for Sports and Recreation is a 96,000-square-foot facility with three hardwood basketball courts as well as three sport/multi-purpose courts that can be used for basketball, volleyball, tennis, roller derby, special events and more.
