The Smith River Sports Complex is a dynamic, multi-purpose athletic and recreation facility. It started with soccer, but it is much more than soccer! Seven field sports are now represented at the Complex: Soccer, Field Hockey, Lacrosse, Ultimate Frisbee, Football, Flag Football and T-Ball! The fields can be rented for tournaments, league games, clinics, camps, practices, band competitions, or group outings. There are also two Picnic Shelter Pavilions and a Meeting Room that can be rented for church, school or company events. We have paved and unpaved walking trails around the entire Complex. Children can come to play on our state-of-the-art EVOS playground system that builds core strength all while having fun! You can also use our Smith River Kayak and Canoe Access to paddle on the river. There are many different ways you can use the Complex!

We took our dogs to the dog trail which is very nice to have somewhere for them to go. This complex has a nice playground, picnic shelters, trails, artificial turf and grass fields, a golf driving range and paved tracks with outdoor exercise equipment for all age. Oh it also has river access for kayaks and canoes. The Complex itself... More

This venue is well designed and well maintained. It is certainly an asset to the local community. It has so many uses. Lacrosse, soccer and cross country are just a few. The play ground is inviting and the parking lots can handle large crowds.

Went for high school soccer tournament. Great venue for multiple games at once. Lots of parking. Some grass, some turf fields. Some fields with bleachers, some with nothing for fans.

The soccer fields are beautiful. The playground is fun, safe, and clean. The bathrooms are very clean and nice. The staff is friendly and helpful. The SRSC offers festivals, soccer games, lacrosse games, football games, tournaments, etc. So much to offer this small community. A wonderful asset to Henry County. LOVE THIS PLACE!!!

This is an outstanding place for walking the many paths, renting the fields, or attending some of the public events that are put on there (like cornhole tournaments, the Smith River Festival, etc). A tourist will more than likely experience the complex as an attendee of an event but it is also a good place to go to do some... More

We just came home from the Martinsville Madness Lacrosse Tournament which was held at Smith River Sports Complex. We were shocked at the quality of this venue,for such a small town which appears to have suffered from this economy, this facility was beautiful.

Thank you so much for your comments! We are very glad you enjoyed the Smith River Sports Complex. We're very fortunate to be in this versatile, welcoming, and conveniently located area in southern Virginia. Being summer, the misters are perfect to cool off the players and spectators of our large events! We hope to see you again soon. More

A great place to watch local soccer team matches and hang out. I really enjoyed how clean and open the area was and how happy people were. It has beautiful turf fields and usually host soccer tournaments and field hockey games.

It is very hot there in the summer. There are not many tree etc. to sit in the shade to watch the children play in the play area. I don't have any grandkids in soccer so I don't know much about that part.
