From parks, to museums, to casinos, or to the miles of beautiful beaches that fill our Coast, sporting events in Coastal Mississippi have an unforgettable backdrop and an agenda that’s jam-packed with things to do for attendees of all ages.

“Entertainment for all ages really sets us apart,” says Marquez Singleton, Sports Development Manager at Coastal Mississippi. “When I speak to tournament organizers, that is something that is appealing to them.”

Bringing the whole family to our destination for a tournament or sporting event means every event is filled with unique fun and unforgettable adventures. And, the good news is, there’s still room for everyone to get some space and fresh air, before and after the games begin.

“Tournament organizers feel like we don't have to be on top of each other here in the destination,” says Singleton. “There's room to roam. There's a level of comfortable when you think of Coastal Mississippi."

Looking for that brief escape from the action? We know that tournaments can be long days filled with various games, and, sometimes, you may need to break away for some space. In Coastal Mississippi, we have plenty of ways to add some pre- or post-game fun to the agenda. Rent a jet ski and explore beyond the shores, enjoy a chartered fishing adventure or put your feet in the sand and enjoy the sun.

“No other destination has that mix of the space, the beach and the dining,” says Singleton.

As we kick off the new year, Coastal Mississippi is prepared for the range of events and sporting tournaments looking to explore the Secret Coast. While 2020 was unpredictable, Coastal Mississippi focused on developing its destination health and safety promise and executing events with safety protocols to ensure all of our attendees and families felt comfortable during their event.

Not only is Coastal Mississippi the perfect place for families and sporting events, but our friendly, welcoming team is prepared to help you craft the perfect event. "We'll do whatever we can to accommodate groups,” Singleton says. “That's something I love to do, I want to see the event from start to finish. That type of interaction is something we don’t shy away from. We appreciate every piece of business that comes through Coastal Mississippi.” We’re also prepared to ensure a smooth and safe event. When discussing learnings from 2020, Singleton says, “In 2021, we’ll be better equipped and a well-oiled machine. Organizers can feel confident in our ability to make participants happy.”

We look forward to welcoming you and your group to Coastal Mississippi.

“If you're looking for a destination that is affordable, that is family oriented with a lot of things to do and a lot of space to get away,” Singleton shares, “I think that our destination, you will see, is going to be at the top of that list."
