In an effort to reduce the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus, the City of Sevierville is closing the Sevierville Community Center effective tomorrow, Saturday, March 14. The closing follows the announcement by the Sevier County School System that county schools will be closed beginning Monday, March 16.
“Out of an abundance of caution and after much consideration, the Community Center will be closed for the time being,” said Sevierville City Administrator Russell Treadway. “Keeping the center open would place our community and City employees at unnecessary risk of exposure.”
The Sevierville Parks and Recreation Department announces the closing of the Sevierville Community Center gymnasium from Friday, March 6 – Sunday, March 8, 2020. The gymnasium will reopen for regularly scheduled activities at 6:00 a.m. Monday, March 9.
The purpose of the closure is for repairs and improvements to the gymnasium floor.
Beginning March 11, pickle ball will be available in the gymnasium on Monday and Wednesday mornings from 8:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m. for $2.00, which includes equipment. For more information, please call 865-453-5441.
