New venues

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.

Alachua and Pas­co coun­ties will be the new loca­tions of the 2020 Flori­da Senior Games.

“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.
