Sports Adventure And Active Lifestyles In Nashville And Beyond

Sports Adventure And Active Lifestyles In Nashville And Beyond

by TJ Anderson

News just started getting around that Brentwood will soon get a 35,000-square-foot "extreme sports center” called AboveAll Trampoline Park, which, according to Brentwood Home Page, “will feature over 15,000 square feet of trampolines, slack lines, a flying trapeze, an obstacle course, a trampoline dodge ball arena and dunk basketball hoops,” plus events and classes and other goings-on. 

When it opens around January, sounds like AboveAll will be a fine addition to Middle Tennessee’s already strong collection of places to get active/adventurous in really fun ways. I’m big on sports — I play a lot of golf and kickball, loudly root for the Vols — and I’m big on ways to stay active.

Curious about some of the other options around town? Here are a few I like — but most certainly not all the energy/adventure/extremeness there is to find in Middle Tennessee:


Team Sports

I play kickball with Nashville Sports Leagues and love it, but that’s far from the only sport you can get involved with here — there’s everything from basketball, flag football and volleyball to cornhole to jump in on.


Rock Climbing

We have a lot of great, different indoor rock climbing options around the MidState. Folks who live in West Nashville and East Nashville have easy access to two Climb Nashville locations, which 20,000-plus square feet of climbing surface, big bouldering areas, lessons and clinics and more. Williamson County residents might head to The Crag at Cool Springs, a climbing gym with similarly ample climbing surface and bouldering space. If you’re in or near Murfreesboro, there’s The Ascent, which accommodates regular visits and plans family climbs, college nights and other climbing get-togethers.


Golf

There are lots of places to play (I’m going to do a whole post on golf courses here and elsewhere), but here’s a place to check out if you’re interested in learning and practicing: Franklin’s Golf House Tennessee. From classes on fundamentals for beginners to leagues, clinics and tournaments, there’s a lot here to help you fine-tune your game whether you’re a longtime player or a curious newbie.


Outdoor Adventures

Adventuring in the out of doors in Middle Tennessee doesn’t take much — we have parks and greenways aplenty. But if you want outdoor adventuring that’s a little more extreme (but still structured), take a look at the Treetop Adventure Park, “an aerial adventure course set in the beautiful woods of Nashville Shores Lakeside Resort featuring 100 exciting and challenging obstacles including suspended bridges, 10 zip lines, cargo nets, ladders, Tarzan jumps, and many other thrilling elements.” An awesome outing for adrenaline junkies young and old.


Go-karting

This may be a little less traditionally “active” than some of these other choices, but Music City Indoor Karting — a pretty new addition in the East Nashville area — definitely offers excitement. These aren’t bumper cars; you’re getting into head-to-head racing in souped-up karts that go up to 40 MPH inside a 77,000-square-foot facility.  

Do you have some favorite Middle Tennessee stops for getting active/adventuring? I’d love to hear about them.

If you’re looking for a home somewhere in the MidState that’s suited for an active lifestyle, I can definitely help. Just reach out.
