Pamela & Roger's Guide to Tucson Sports

Like most university towns, Tucson is addicted to sports -- and consistently produces nationally ranked teams (such of the University of Arizona's men's basketball team, and women's softball team). But there's more than big-league spectator opportunities here. With mild winter weather, Tucson is home to dozens of golf courses, miles of bicylcing pathways, and wonderful hiking trails at Sabino Canyon, the Catalina Mountains, and at the surrounding mountain ranges.

Below are listed many of the University programs that attract a huge community following. Of course, there are many other sports programs that visitors may wish to learn about: soccer, swimming, women's basketball, college baseball, track, wrestling, etc.

Basketball

Tucson is a basketball town. Lute Olson is no longer here to shape the university men's basketball team, but his 25-year record is an incredible legacy: 11 Pac-10 conference titles, 4 Final Four appearances, and the 1997 National Collegiate championship title.

Now led by Sean Miller, the UA Wildcats face a competitive season of both Pac-12 conference play as well as other teams. Fans look to the Final Four to validate that the Wildcats are truly a team to be reckoned with nationally.

Football

Coach Rich Rodriguez always brings in a strong class of new recruits and whips them into shape for a good season. The Pac-12 conference now includes UofA, Arizona State Univ., Univ. of California-Berkeley, Univ. of California-Los Angeles, Univ. of Colorado, Univ. of Oregon, Oregon State, Univ. of Southern California, Stanford, Univ. of Utah, Univ. of Washington, and Washington State.

Check out the football schedule, photos, and ticket availability here.

Softball

University of Arizona Women's Softball is another powerhouse program, and a great spectator sport. In May 2011, Coach Mike Candrea failed to get his team into the Women's College World Series for the first time in his 22 years at the UofA. A very impressive record.

The team has announced a 9-game fall 2011 season. To see this year's schedule, click here.

Baseball

Kino Veterans Memorial Sports Complex, at 155 acres, is the largest such facility in Pima County, and boasts an 11,000-seat grass stadium, a dozen regulation baseball fields, plus dedicated soccer and softball fields.

Professional spring training teams have shifted around in recent years, and are still in flux. The 2005 World Champion Chicago White Sox and the 2001 World Champion Arizona Diamondbacks play at Kino frequently, as well as Tucson's own minor-league Padres. Click here for the Padres' schedule.

Golf

Tucson's mild winter weather is a golfer's delight. Several dozen public and private courses dot the city.

The highlight of the golf season is the Accenture Match Play, taking place February 20-26, 2012 at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club at Dove Mountain in Northwest Tucson (Marana). This year the 64 golfers vie for a $8 million purse of this World Golf Championship event.

Bicycling

"El Tour de Tucson" has been an annual event for almost 30 years, and each year over 8,000 participants from around the country come. Ride day includes the 109-mile main event which attracts many world-class riders and several shorter runs for serious amateurs. Some 25,000 spectators turn out to cheer the riders on. Biking is big in Tucson where many roadways are built with a dedicated bike lane. The city ranks 12th in the nation for the number of persons who bike to work.

You can find maps of the metro bike paths at most bicycle shops or the public library.

Hiking

There's no better place for hiking -- with established trails through gorgeous desert vegetation that can take the hiker from lowland desert to high mountain peaks, from scrub mesquite to mountain pines. Southern Arizona Hiking Club puts together dozens of organized group hikes every month, and has a wealth of information including great photos on their website of what you'll see on many of the outings. Trail-heads are prominently marked around the city and -- armed with a good trail map from Summit Hut, 5045 E. Speedway (at Rosemont) or 605 E. Wetmore (at 1st Avenue), and bottled water -- you can plan your own hikes.

If you enjoy more casual walking in the neighborhood, you'll want to check out the River Walk, tarmac walkways/bicycle lanes that meander along the Rillito River from I-10 to Craycroft on both sides of the river. Parking lots off the main cross streets. Click here for map.
