We are often asked about what time(s) of year we are busiest here at SportsBR and as most would expect, spring and summer are our biggest event seasons here in Baton Rouge. And when we add new events to that mix we end up with a very busy time of year!
Between now and mid August, our city will host a number of large scale events, some for the first time. The end of June brings us the Gumbo of Ballroom DanceSport Championships, a USA Dance national qualifying event that brings adults from 30+ states to participate in 3 days of competition at the Crowne Plaza ballroom.
Mid-July brings a busy weekend where we host both the USA Track & Field Masters Outdoor Championships as well as the TCS Marucci Southern Softball Championships. Volunteers are needed at the USATF Masters Championships
Baseball reigns the last weekend in July as our friends from Marucci Sports host the Marucci World Series bring in 48 of the best baseball teams and players in the country to compete at 8 sites in the area.
Lastly, LSU's Tiger Park will host National Pro Fastpitch Championships the weekend of August 17-20. The best fastpitch softball players in the world will be in Baton Rouge to battle it out for a chance at a NPF Championship. Tickets are on sale at championship.profastpitch.com.
Thank you to all our facility partners, sport coordinators and sponsors of these events for bringing them to Baton Rouge. We particularly thank our SportsBR Varsity Partners for their support of what we do.
