Every year, dozens of sports teams travel to Jackson County for baseball, softball, basketball, football and more. The Marianna Educational and Recreational Expo (M.E.R.E.) is where many youth and high school tournaments take place. Graceville, Sneads, and Grand Ridge all have smaller sports facilities that can host tournaments as well.
For college-level sports action, Chipola College hosts tournaments and games throughout the school year. Men and Women’s Basketball, Baseball, and Softball fans from all over come to attend the Chipola Sports games. Alumni events often bring some of the players that have made it pro or in the major leagues back to Marianna. A full calendar can be found at Chipola Athletics.
