Welcome to the home of NFL players, State Champions, Pro Baseball Players, Olympic coaches, and sports enthusiasts. New Braunfels is happy to carry on great sports traditions; swim meets that date back to the 1960’s, volleyball tournaments going strong for over 30 years, golf events that range from small to over 1000 have been hosted here for 38 years, Softball and Baseball tournaments, and many more. Some unique events such as golden glove boxing, pool, nine pin bowling, and Skat (German card game) tournaments.
Sporting roots began in 1855 with the founding of the Turnverrein (athletic club) which combined exercise with socializing. Sports were not limited to physical exercise but include the oldest continually operating shooting club in the United States – the New Braunfels Schuetzen Verein. Even during war, when ammuniztion was scarce, the competitions continued with only two bullets per participant. Needless to say, sports competitions of any kind run deep in our area; they are not limited to school participation and still hold a vital place in our culture.
Dance with us at Texas's Gruene Hall, the oldest dance hall in the state. Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn and Townes Van Zandt have all performed here. #Daily360
