FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry says a private company is planning to build a $7 million volleyball complex in the city that could also be used for gymnastics, wrestling and basketball.
The Journal Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/z9W8kP ) Henry disclosed the plan for the 57,000-square-foot facility during his State of the City address Wednesday. Henry says the building will include a training center, locker rooms, weight rooms, a restaurant and room for 12 volleyball courts.
He says it is expected to draw athletes from around the country.
It will be built by RCI Development of Fort Wayne. RCI spokesman Todd Ramsey says the project was spurred by the success of a neighboring ice complex.
