Welcome to the Charleston Metro Area, one of the fastest growing sports travel destinations in the United States!
Local developers work diligently to produce top-rated national and international sports events for our region every year --- with golf, sailing and tennis leading the way in spectator and media exposure events. Our recreation and amateur event organizers lead the way in participatory sports with over 100 state-wide and regional competitions for a number of traditional and emerging disciplines. And behind the local sports scene, is the Charleston Metro Sports Council – our region's official development agency for promoting the social and economic benefit in which these sports activities continue to produce each year.
Sports events in the U.S. represents a $6.1 billion marketplace. In the Charleston region alone, it is
worth more than $50 million annually, with 80+ sports
travel events bringing 100 to 40,000 visitors,
per event, for an entire travel experience..
