The city of 115,000 people was just one square mile of farmland back in 1938 when Flora Mae Statler founded it. So why did she call the little community Surprise? According to Statler’s daughter Elizabeth Wusich Stoft, her mother once commented "she would be surprised if the town ever amounted to much." With the community's success, she would indeed be surprised and proud! Suprise is currently Arizona’s 10th largest-city.
Surprise Stadium is the Spring Training home of the Texas Rangers and Kansas City Royals. It's also where the community comes together for free family movie night events, Fourth of July fireworks and much more!
In the fall the Surprise Tennis and Racquet Complex hosts a stop on the Champions Tour, attracting tennis legends John McEnroe, Andre Agassi and Jim Courier. This 25-court venue is also open for tennis players of all skill sets to enjoy or take lessons.
