Spooky Nook Sports
On most weekends during the last five years, the Nook Sports founders found themselves traveling the country to one youth sports event after another. The more they moved from venue to venue, the more they were struck by the lack of sports facilities that offered quality customer service, great playing and spectator conditions and additional activities for down times.
Before too long, they were on a mission: find an existing building suitable for running sports and activities in their beloved community, and create a family-centric sports, entertainment and events venue.
In November 2011, after a thorough search, an old Armstrong World Industries distribution center in Manheim, Pennsylvania hit the radar, and the rest was history. Even though the building was empty and in need of renovation, everyone agreed it just screamed whistles, cheering crowds and the hustle and bustle of an exciting sports venue...and they bought it.
The group knew the building (which sits on 65 acres) was big, but they didn't realize quite how big. As they researched their plans, they discovered that it would be nearly twice the size of the next biggest sports complex facility in the country. In fact, they are not aware of any indoor sports complex quite this big anywhere else in the world!
The company owes its name to its location on Spooky Nook Road. Locally, the road is affectionately referred to on a regular basis, and the founders thought it made for the coolest sports brand around!
Love coming here for travel field hockey games for my daughters. But is a bit much when you pay for teams to play here & then get the $5 to park fee added on too. Understand not allowing meals / food brought in, but the concessions are overpriced. Spent $31.00 for 5 drinks & 4 pretzels! Would be nice to be able to at least bring in own drinks (not limit of 2 h2o) and maybe small snacks since usually rushed between games & takes long to walk in & get concession foods then get back. But overall great place to come for games & competitive playing.
I took a walk through on a slow day. This place is high. It must be a great environment for a tournament of any kind. Also holds wedding receptions and conference's.
This place has almost everything you'd want in a sports complex, except for an ice rink. Membership is a bit expensive, but you don't have to be a member to sign up for classes. The bar and restaurant is a nice place to relax while your child goes to class.
Restaurant was great. Snack bar could use some improvement (cold hot dogs, syrupy smoothies) and vending machines need to be fixed. Some won't take cash, just cards.
This place sis incredible. The basketball courts, workout area, indoor soccer, food court are clean and well maintained. Spent the weekend there for a basketball tournament. And, do not forget the outdoor fields are nice as well.
