Popular Lexington Sports Complex Closed In Legal Spat

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A popular Lexington sports facility has closed its doors in a dispute over money with the building's owners.

LEX 18 confirms that KBA Sports was ordered to vacate the facility at 273 Ruccio Way. The facility is particularly popular for basketball and volleyball training.

Fayette Circuit Court Judge Pamela Goodwine issued the order last week in a long-running legal dispute over rent. The KBA building is owned by STH Enterprises, which is owned by the Hatton brothers. 

Steve Hatton told LEX 18 that KBA Sports owes them nearly $400,000 in back rent from 2015.

"They just failed to pay rent along the way so we had to take action, and they defaulted on the lease," said Hatton.

LEX 18's Leigh Searcy reached out to the attorney for KBA Sports by phone.

"My client has continued to pay the mortgage on the property to the lender, about 10 k per month, STH claims KBA owes more than that," said attorney Ted Martin.

The move left families of kids sign up for camps scrambling. Martin said KBA Sports is offering refunds for the summer camps and will soon be operating other camps under a new company named CKY Sports.

The Hatton Brothers tell LEX 18 that they'll resume camps and training at the KBA building on their own in August after cleaning up and making repairs. 

In a post on its Facebook page, KBA Sports said it would come back "bigger and better."
