Pending an upcoming bond election, an expansion to the Round Rock Sports Center may soon be on the way to support future tourism growth and local usage.

An addition of two tournament basketball courts adjacent to the existing six were approved for design by Round Rock officials Feb. 23. Marmon Mok Architecture won the $1.49 million contract, which includes architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and audio-visual design services for the expansion, which would see the additional courts added to the sports facility's westernmost side. According to the city, the courts' configuration of striping, accessories and seating will be arranged to support other sports like volleyball.

The contract will be paid through proceeds from the city's sports and community venue tax. The construction of the expansion, however, is tied to the city's $230 million 2023 bond Proposition A, which includes improvements for several parks and other city facilities characterized as quality-of-life enhancements. Round Rock citizens will vote on the bond in the May 6 election.
