Developers consider expansion of TBK sports complex in Bettendorf | Business and Economy


The developers of the TBK sports complex are preparing for something new on Middle Road from the large sports complex and shopping center in Bettendorf.

Developers and city officials say nothing is set in stone yet.

Opened in 2018, the 75-acre TBK Bank Sports Complex has drawn thousands of children and families to the complex with facilities for baseball, softball, soccer, basketball, gymnastics and vollyball, and offers a two-story bowling alley and arcade, gym, restaurant and bar on site. Next to it is a hotel and 15 shops and restaurants.

Dave Herrell, president of Visit Quad Cities, said the resort welcomes more than 100,000 visitors a year.

Doug Kratz, the former CEO and developer of the complex, said he would like to add multipurpose fields to the field northwest of the intersection of Forest Grove Drive and Middle Road to continue to attract more regional competition.

“We would like to expand it, we’re a pretty big resort for the state of Iowa, and we would like to expand to be more regional,” Kratz said.

He has ideas for other business developments, but said he is still in the early stages of the process and continues to do due diligence.

Kevin Koellner, one of the developers of the Bettendorf sports complex, purchased 109.5 acres of land east of the complex and Middle Road under the name of a holding company, FG80 Holdings, in July, according to the records. from Scott County Assessor.
