Our Story

Our Story

Located in South Boston, Virginia. The World of Sports is the Premier Family Entertainment Center in the Piedmont Area of Southern Virginia. We are a family owned business that has evolved over the years and now features 20 Lanes of Bowling, 2 Cinemas with Digital Projection and Sound, In-Door Electric Go-Karting, 2 Level Laser Tag Arena with 20 Vests, a Full-Service Sports Bar and Grill with an extensive craft beer selection, weekly specials and entertainment, and a Modern Arcade with many of the best video and redemption games.

Our goal is to provide a first-class experience to our guests and their families. We want you to tell all your friends and return again and again. We strive to provide meaningful programs and activities that enhance the quality of life to both those that reside in the area and to those just traveling through.

The World of Sports offers a number of birthday party packages that can be customized to make your birthday experience the special day that it is. Over the years, we have hosted thousands of birthday, company, school, team, youth, church, family parties and events.

In bowling, we offer leagues and programs for youth, adults, families and friends. We have something for the novice bowler, the serious bowler and even the not so serious bowler. New to the area and interested in meeting some new people? We have weekly morning and evening programs that might just be up your alley.

Upon opening in 1980, the World of Sports has always been an active member in the communities that we serve with a primary focus on charities, causes, and programs that serve the youth of our area. We proudly sponsor and serve local sports, schools, and local charities with programs that serve less fortunate kids. We have helped numerous churches, groups, charities, clubs and teams raise money by hosting fundraisers and through our donations to many raffles. Raising money can sometimes be a hassle but we put the FUN in Fundraising. So please let us know if we can assist.

We believe that we have the best family entertainment mix that can be found in the region and have something to offer everyone. Please come and check us out. Unless there is inclement weather, we plan to be open every day other than Thanksgiving, the evening of Christmas Eve and the morning of Christmas Day. We look forward to serving you.
