By Sponsored Content, August 17, 2017

The Hamilton County Sports Authority, representing Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville and Westfield, Indiana, just wrapped up another successful summer season of events. Some of the highlights include the Grail hosted by NXT—the fastest growing lacrosse tournament in the Midwest—followed up by the largest ever USA Archery National Target Championships and 2017 JOAD National Target Championships. The season was capped off by sending two teams to Williamsport to compete for the Little League World Series with the Little League Baseball Central Region tournament.

Hamilton County’s green fields, manicured and maintained for top sports performance, and hardwood floors, buffed to shine and waiting for a ball and gym shoes to dance across it are the ideal location for any type of sporting event. “Hamilton County’s premier facilities offer amazing flexibility to host the full spectrum of sporting events from traditional to niche events,” says Scott Spillman, Hamilton County Sports Authority manager, when asked about all the different events that occurred in the area this past summer.

Nestled just north of Indianapolis, Grand Park in Westfield,  is a destination like no other. The thoughtfully designed 400-acre Grand Park Sports Campus features an impressive lineup of playing space and amenities makes it an ideal tournament and event host. With 26 diamonds, 31 multipurpose fields, eight indoor basketball/volleyball courts and three indoor full-size soccer fields Grand Park is a destination for year-round competition. Whether you’re planning a youth event or a national championship, your teams (and fans) will be treated to top-quality amenities that can only be found at a complex of this magnitude.
