Game Time Sports Center in Fort Myers
Gametime in Fort Myers’ Gulf Coast Town Center offers an entertaining mini-Vegas experience with arcade games, neon-lit slots, a restaurant/sports bar, attentive waiter service, and a massive menu with everything from burgers to pasta!
In February 2014, SportsCenter moved from Los Angeles back to ESPN’s Bristol offices for its weeknight editions between 1:00 am and 2:00 am ET, hosted by Neil Everett and Stan Verrett.
Indoor Training Center for Baseball & Softball
Game Time provides athletes of all levels, from beginners to veterans, with sports and training programs tailored to their specific needs. They aim to equip each athlete with the tools and training necessary for success in their sport – their trainers specialize in coaching to meet individual player requirements as early as age 8. At their facilities are eight batting cages, six pitching lanes, and an indoor MLB regulation-sized turf field – ideal conditions for success!
Game Time provides private hitting and pitching instruction for baseball and softball from qualified instructors who use their experience both as players and coaches to foster an ideal learning environment. Furthermore, Game Time hosts camps throughout the year for all ages and skill levels. Finally, its facilities also help aspiring college recruits by offering showcase consultation and prospect videos.
Game Time recently converted its eight tennis courts into volleyball courts due to the increased interest in volleyball in Springfield and Champaign County. This change allowed Game Time to host more tournaments that brought hundreds of people for weekend events, provided Wittenberg University’s tennis team an indoor home, and increased community interest; while many indoor tennis courts closed due to this transformation, it has negatively impacted Springfield’s volleyball community and even negatively impacted Champaign Sharks girls volleyball club who previously practiced at Game Time.
Indoor Soccer Fields
Game Time Sports Center provides indoor soccer fields that are accessible to people of all ages year-round, featuring artificial turf-covered fields with markings for soccer, football, and lacrosse. There is also a basketball court and full-sized sports court available at this facility; during winter league play, one or two of their fields are used with walls around them that keep the ball out of sight from spectators’ view – perfect for all-ages play!
Indoor soccer (also called Arena soccer) is an adapted version of association football played inside walled indoor arenas. It follows different rules than standard soccer and typically uses synthetic or ceramic surfaces – unlike futsal, it does not permit player throw-ins! Indoor soccer has become popular across several countries, including the United States and Canada, and there are both professional and amateur leagues offering league play regularly, with tournaments also happening regularly for this sport.
Indoor soccer games typically involve six players on a team, including one goalkeeper. Individual players may choose their defensive, forward, or attack position during each match, and groups may substitute players during play; however, an individual cannot represent more than two teams during any given season.
Indoor soccer is governed by the World Minifootball Federation, which was established in Switzerland after the International Fast Football Federation dissolved. Regional federations also exist that are dedicated to spreading indoor soccer around.
WMF rules must be observed for the correct play of this sport. They include:
Axe throwing has quickly become the latest craze among bars and restaurants. While it may sound dangerous, when conducted under supervision by an experienced coach, it’s actually great fun. Participants stand behind a foul line approximately 10-12 feet away from their target and throw an axe onto it; targets are marked to indicate where points should fall along its perimeters, with more excellent points scored on hitting bullseye targets vs further out; players add up all their throws before adding up scores for each throw; the person with the highest total scores wins!
Axe throwing differs from other target sports in that it can be played either solo or with two players forming teams of two. Each participant gets five throws per game; teams competing against each other aim for 21 points first to win; any player missing their target costs their team 10 points; hitting one of several “landmines” will reduce the score by another 10 points.
Facilities at this facility resemble old warehouses with high ceilings and sturdy walls, where guests sign a waiver to meet their coach and undergo a safety lesson and practice session prior to starting an axe-throwing tournament. A 30-minute game typically lasts as players battle head-to-head until a winner emerges.
Each axe-throwing facility offers slightly different targets, scoring systems, and game modes; however, the general rules remain the same: participants throw an axe at a wooden target with colored circles of various sizes – with five points awarded to a bull’s eye in the middle being worth five points, three to an inner black circle and one each for outer blue and red rings simultaneously landing within each. If they land within both rings simultaneously, they receive an extra point!
Projected targets add an exciting and engaging element to axe-throwing both novices and veterans alike. These displays can show real-time scoring or incorporate interactive games or multiplayer features to turn it into an unforgettable experience.
Restaurant & Sports Bar
GameTime stands out from other sports bars by providing attentive waiter service, an extensive menu, and generous portions. Their tap wall features 30 beers, including ColdFire, Oakshire, Ninkasi Two Towns, and Manifest. In addition, GameTime serves cocktails and other beverages as well as desserts like beer-battered fish burgers and sandwiches – and their tap wall boasts 30 taps!
Game Time’s owners say they wanted to create a sports bar that appealed to everyone, which is why they added a restaurant to their gaming and entertainment center in Oshkosh’s Westville neighborhood. Since opening on Feb. 11th, this eatery has already developed an enthusiastic following, boasting many classic bar dishes like cheese curds and “hockey sticks” (mozzarella sticks).
Owners Craig Geerts and Dennis Ruedinger are passionate supporters of both high school and collegiate athletics in Wisconsin; Geerts played golf for the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh while Ruedinger coached the Lourdes Academy girls’ basketball team. Additionally, these individuals own Appleton’s Northland Sports Pub & Grill, which they based on the Game Time menu.
The bar itself is filled with sports memorabilia and TVs from every imaginable sport – creating a lively, primarily standing-room space where fans of various teams can watch their matches and compete for turkeys (three strikes in a row).
Venue for prom parties, wedding rehearsal dinners, corporate team building events, and sports team celebrations; can accommodate groups up to 1200. It features over 120 games and simulators, including three lanes of mini bowling; newer additions include the Angry Birds game, which requires players to throw punches to knock out birds while racing against time; in addition to food and games available here are private dining rooms perfect for special events.
