Hazelwood Parks & Recreation Esports Lounge Launch

January 15 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Hazelwood Parks and Recreation will be launching their new Esports Lounge on January 15 with a Launch Party and Super Smash Bros Ultimate Tournament. The event is free to attend, but entry into the tournament is $10. Anytime between 10 am and 5 pm, stop by the Hazelwood Community Center at 1186 Teson Rd. to check out the Esports Lounge. The tournament registration will start at 10 am and the tournament itself will start at noon.

Attendees will have the opportunity to speak with several colleges, including St. Louis University, University of Missouri – St. Louis, Missouri Baptist University, Fontbonne University, and the University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy, to learn more about their esports programs. There will also be a raffle for a HyperX prize package. The Launch Party and Esports Lounge are generously sponsored by Riot Games and HyperX through donations of equipment.

To use the esports lounge, participants must have either a resident or a non-resident card, which can be picked up at the Hazelwood Community Center. Additionally, hourly rates start at $5 per hour and all games must be rated T or E – no M-rated games are allowed. The Lounge will have five PCS and two Nintendo Switches available for use.

Hazelwood’s esports program is intended for children in middle school and high school and built on three pillars. For the first pillar, Hazelwood Parks and Recreation will work with the St. Louis Science Center to incorporate education on esports, from the industry and jobs available, to PC building and future college scholarship opportunities. The second pillar will include information on health and nutrition for esports athletes. The final pillar is focused on recreational fun, including open game time, leagues, and tournaments.
