The Florida Senior Games are coming to Alachua and Pasco counties.
Enterprise Florida announced this week that the Wiregrass Ranch Sports Campus in Wesley Chapel, the Hotel Indigo Celebration Pointe in Gainesville, and the Legacy Park Multipurpose Center in Alachua would host Florida Senior Games events in early December.
The venues are new to the games and new in general — Legacy Park opened in 2017, Celebration Pointe opened in 2018, Wiregrass has been open a matter of months, and the Sarah Vande Berg Tennis and Wellness Center opens its doors for the first time on Saturday.
“This venue is unlike anything else in the Tampa Bay sports market,” Sports Development and Tourism Manager Consuelo Sanchez said of the Wiregrass Ranch Sports Campus.
“It’s solely dedicated to sports and includes everything event organizers and planners look for, all under one roof. Having an on-site hotel really adds to the convenience WRSCPC offers to event planners who are considering different venues.”
The 2020 Florida Senior Games will be held Dec. 5–13 in multiple locations throughout Central Florida.
The games serve as a qualifier for the 2021 National Senior Games, which will take place in the Greater Fort Lauderdale area Nov. 5–18, 2021.
Due to the pandemic, anyone over 50 can register for the 2020 Florida Senior Games without qualifying performance.
