2913 Spooky Nook Road

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!

Great place. Have been there for soccer for a few seasons and went climbing a few times on the rock wall. Huge facility and it's a big place if you just want somewhere to walk around. Haven't been there for anything else but it's always busy with a variety of sports and events. Even business men go there in the evening for some kind of seminar. It's a weird mix of people dressed up in suits and people dressed up in sports clothes. Friendly people from all over the area. Easy place to make new good quality friends.

Nice basketball courts. Was there last August for a basketball tournament. Refs were fair. Food was not good. Prices are crazy. But it is a nice complex. And they run great programs.

I went here 2 years in a row for company meetings and both years I loved it! Such a great idea for team building and getting your businesses to meet. Staff is amazing! The sporting events that you could have there has no limits ! They have everything for your teams computations and gatherings. If you are looking for something to do with a large group I totally say you should at least try this once!

Great facility to go to and workout, participate in team sports and buy merchandise. I was recently there for the Lancaster Senior Games and received 4 medals for the events I was entered in. Volunteers were great and answered all my questions. Will be returning again next year and hoping results will be the same.
