Mendenhall's Sports Plex is a great place for the kids of Simpson County to play youth sports. With all of the upgrades the city has made, it's really shaping up to be a competitive park. Thanks to the hard work of our City, we were able to host our first Dixie Youth State Championships Tournament in 2014. Since then we have hosted Dixie Youth State tournaments in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Also for the first time in 2017 we hosted our first Dixie Softball state tournament. These Tournaments were a great success for the Park and the City of Mendenhall and brought in thousands of vistors to our city.
Our Baseball and Softball programs was formed in 1978 and is now starting its 40th year. We started with 2 youth fields and now are up to 5 youth fields and 2 small t-ball fields. The City and the Mendenhall Sports Club purchased the small parcell of land behind the field house in 2016 and now has plans to add another youth field in the future. Registration for baseball and softball starts in January and goes thru February, the season games start the first week in April.
We have now completed our 5th fall soccer season since its inception in 2013, this has been a blessing for kids of Simpson County. Soccer has been a great opportunity for our community to keep our kids involved in sports year round. Soccer signups are held in August and September, season usually starts at the end of September.
Thanks goes out to our Mayor, City Board Members, Mendenhall Sports Club, Baseball/Soccer Board, City Workers and Sponsors, that has helped in making this happen.
