Sport Tourism and the Best Sports Venues – find great facilitates in North Bay!

When it comes to sports venues and facilities in North Bay, it’s best to go by the numbers. Let’s see how these work for you: four turf fields; three regulation-sized softball fields; nine arenas in the region, including the 4000-seat North Bay Memorial Gardens, for great hockey and just about every other type of event you can think of; 120 kilometres of groomed cross country skiing trails; the 350’ vertical of the Laurentian Ski Hill, once home to Olympian Kate Pace; an 1150-seat Campus Athletic Complex; and two things that come with the territory, two lakes for sporting on the water – or on the ice.

And not only does North Bay offer sports venues and events that will keep you entertained – or in the case of hosting, fully supported – but our accommodations will suit your fans, athletes, and coaches perfectly.

Whether they choose North Bay hotels, or stay in the Canadore College Residence- with kitchenette and multiple bedroom suites  – they’ll find not only the best sports venues, but great places to rest up for the next day of play.

No Need to Wait for a Tournament – North Bay Hosts Fantastic Sporting Events!

Of course, there is no reason to wait for a golf tournament, a hockey tournament, or a derby that has you ice fishing on Lake Nipissing. You’ll love the events happening in every season in North Bay – both indoors and out – so much so that you’ll never want to leave.
