The Ohio Valley has a rich history with basketball and we want to continue that legacy in our state-of-the-art sports complex. Maybe we will find our next John Havlicek (8x NBA Champion born in Martins Ferry, Ohio) playing on one of our six indoor basketball courts. Highlands Sports Complex is here for boys and girls of all ages - with leagues, camps, and development classes for everyone.
Basketball in Wheeling, WV
Wheeling might not have a professional basketball team, but you wouldn't know this if you were visiting. Drive down the street and it will be hard for you to see an empty basketball court. We love basketball and we support teams from all across the nation. Whether you were a Bull's fan in the 80s or love your NCAA WVU Mountaineers - we embrace your fandom and want you to come play with us.
The Ohio Valley Athletic Conference states that there are more than 40 schools in the Upper Ohio Valley - many having very successful basketball programs. Many of these high school athletes start playing at an early age at local gymnasiums and recreation courts.
Highlands Sports Complex welcomes you to join us and become the next basketball star.
