When Legends Sports Complex opened its doors 10 years ago, it was the first of its kind. It all begun in 2005, when Dr. Richardo Mora and his wife Gina, had a vision to build their own baseball academy in The Woodlands, TX. Dr. Mora partnered with like minds whom raised the capital and obtained 10 acres of land. They then hired a consultant that expanded their vision to something bigger, a mega sports complex. The partners then travelled the U.S. to view other complexes and upon returning to Texas, they decided to purchase an additional 5 acres of land to complete the 15 acres that surrounds Legends’ 100,000 square foot building.
Legends’ mission from day one was to become a place where families come together and stay together. Legends had become a facility in which its members can enjoy youth and adult programs, fitness, sports performance and a variety of community, regional and national events. In the past 10 years Legends has become the 2nd home for many athletes due to the amount of time they spend training to participate in the Olympics, college sports, and professional sports. Legends has also become a favorite spot for professional athletes to host their camps and clinics; such as James Harden, John Lucas and Skylar Diggins, as well as, various guest appearances from the Houston Dash or Dynamo and facility friends like Super Bowl Champion Jeremy Parquet giving the football players a pep talk during camps.
