Sports, Recreation & Outdoors

While Orlando is best known for its world-famous theme parks, the city is full of unique outdoor attractions and sporting activities that everyone can enjoy. Between the massive, state-of-the-art United States Tennis Association (USTA) National Campus, the NFL Pro Bowl, acclaimed golf courses and tournaments, professional sports teams, miles of running terrain, and other outdoor adventures for the whole family, Orlando is a premier destination for sportsmen and sportswomen alike.

Open to the public, and less than 20 minutes from Orlando International Airport, the USTA National Campus in Lake Nona invites tennis enthusiasts of all skill levels and ages to watch, learn and play at one of the world’s largest tennis facilities.

Outdoor courts at the USTA National Campus

Spread across the campus’ 64 acres, you’ll discover 100 tennis courts, including hard and red-clay surfaces, providing an unbeatable array of options for players. Whether you’re a player or coach, beginner or expert, or even a spectator, you’ll enjoy unparalleled tennis experiences at this one-of-a-kind location.

NFL Pro Bowl and College Bowl Games

In January, the NFL Pro Bowl at Camping World Stadium brings a celebration of American football to Orlando, providing players, coaches, families and fans with a full week of gridiron activities, challenges and fun. Before the game, Pro Bowl Week gives everyone the chance to watch and even participate in a variety of events, including youth football clinics, the NFL Flag Championship, Pro Bowl player practices, skills challenges and the free, interactive NFL Pro Bowl Experience at Walt Disney World Resort’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

Camping World Stadium is also home to some of the nation’s biggest college football competitions. They include January’s Citrus Bowl, November’s Florida Blue Florida Classic, and December’s Camping World Bowl and Autonation Cure Bowl.

Orlando Magic and Orlando City Soccer

If you love basketball and soccer, you’re going to love Orlando. Although they’re a relatively new addition to the region’s sports offerings, Orlando City Soccer has taken the city by storm, and their ultramodern Orlando City Stadium in downtown Orlando is an unbeatable place to catch MLS and related matches.

Also downtown, the Amway Center hosts the NBA’s Orlando Magic, which plays a minimum of 44 home games each year. Both venues offer numerous seating options, as well as gourmet food and beverage services for watching games in style.

Golf

With more than 170 golf courses and numerous golf academies, it’s no surprise that so many golfers love Orlando. In fact, the area is home to more pro golfers than any other city in the world. Several pros have even designed local courses, including Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman and Tom Fazio, to name a few.

We also host prestigious golf tournaments, including the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill Club & Lodge. Attracting some of golf’s biggest names, the annual event takes place in March.

Running

Bring your best running shoes when you come to Orlando, because our miles of trails, parks and roadways will have you feeling the need for speed. You can also stock up on related equipment at boutique shops and well-known chains.
