Sporting Chance Center is a 40,000 square foot, air-conditioned, indoor sporting facility, which features a state-of-the art floating wood floor that can be configured with up to eight (8) volleyball courts or five (5) full basketball courts, and can accommodate virtually any sport or fitness activity that requires indoor space. The large, central lobby offers comfortable seating and viewing areas for parents and spectators, five large HD flat screen televisions, and free Wi-Fi.
Southern Arizona Community Sports, Inc a 501C3 non-profit (SACS) privately raised the money to build the SCC in a partnership with Pima County. Once the building was completed (in 2013), it was donated to Pima County. In exchange and as part of the partnership, SACS operates the SCC for Pima County.
The Sporting Chance Center is located at 2100 W. Curtis Road in northwest Tucson near River & La Cholla. The facility is immediately adjacent to/shares property with Curtis Park.
It is free to enter the Sporting Chance Center, but most of the courts are reserved by club and recreational teams.
That being said, there are some "open play" basketball hours, created for kids and teens who are looking for a way to be active after-school. A nominal daily fee is charged: $1.00 for under age 18; $2.00 for ages 18+.

The revolving menu includes items such as string cheese, trail mix, bagels, muffins, beef jerky, clif bars, subway sandwiches, naked smoothies, hummus with pretzels, tea, and coffee, among other items.
