Welcoming more than two million visitors since its inception, LakePoint features scout-worthy competition across multiple scholarship-based sports. The big picture of LakePoint is a stay and play tournament hub, complete with dining, shopping, enter- tainment and hotels for the ultimate sports and family experience. LakePoint features eight major league sized baseball fields and three multi-pur- pose fields, all equipped with state-of-the- art Shaw Sports Turf. In addition to the turf fields, there are 10 beach volleyball courts with a two-story open air pavilion, the largest cable wakeboarding park in North America, Terminus Wake Park, and LakePoint's newest addition, the Cham- pions Center. The 170,000-square foot indoor sports facility features 12 basketball courts that convert to 24 volleyball courts in the world's largest clear-span display of competition space. The Champions Center has hosted several world-class events by operators such as Under Armour, adidas, AAU and Varsity. Being able to accommo- date indoor events has solidified LakePoint as a year-round travel sports and tourna- ment destination. LakePoint is proud to offer much more than just elite playing surfaces. We believe the off-the-field experiences are just as important as those made on the field. With more than 1,300 acres of mixed-use development, LakePoint will feature seven entertainment venues, the first of which opened this year — LakePoint Station. The family fun center, which includes minia- ture golf, an arcade, laser maze, and more, gives teams and families the opportunity to escape the pressure of competition in a fun, relaxing atmosphere. The next phase of LakePoint will provide more than 20 additional playing fields, a Greg Norman Champions Golf Academy, as well as Boomtown, LakePoint's enter- tainment district. Located just 35 miles north of Down- town Atlanta, LakePoint is easily accessible from any location. Having already wel- comed guests from all 50 states, Canada, and Puerto Rico, LakePoint truly is the premier sports vacation destination. n L Enjoy The Ultimate Sports And Family Experience In LakePoint Michael Grade, SVP Sports Operations (404) 263-0463 LakePoint Sports Development Group, LLC
