"The Fieldhouse of Kansas City is the only facility of its kind in the metro and the region," said Troy Paul, owner of The Fieldhouse of Kansas City. "With the number of kids participating in sports growing every year, we provide a much needed resource to busy and active families, while also being large enough to host multiple tournaments, contests, and competitions simultaneously."
