Families have one more reason to attend The Players Championship this year thanks to Nickelodeon.
The tournament officials and the network announced a big plan to bring new, family-friendly tournament activities to the McKenzie Noelle Wilson Foundation Kid Zone which will return to THE PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass.
The McKenzie Noelle Wilson Foundation Kid Zone will have an enclosed, air-conditioned area featuring the Nickelodeon experience, an interactive destination for kids and families attending THE PLAYERS. Fans will be able to show off their skills at the SpongeBob SquarePants mini-golf challenge and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Puttskee, get virtually slimed, meet SpongeBob and more.
In addition, Nickelodeon will also bring the fun to kids at home when Breanna Yde hosts the NickSports Presents Golf Rocks Weekend on Friday, May 12th. Yde will give kids a behind-the-scenes look at the tournament, highlights from Nickelodeon’s Kid Zone activation, interviews with PGA TOUR players and more.
On Sunday, May 14, the cast of Nickelodeon’s School of Rock (Breanna Yde, Aidan Miner, Jade Pettyjohn, Lance Lim) and PGA TOUR and LPGA players (Peter Malnati, Sydnee Michaels, Mackenzie Hughes, Demi Runas) will compete in the Mega Golf Challenge that was filmed at the Genesis Open, a series of slime-filled, golf-themed interstitials hosted by School of Rock’s Tony Cavalero and Ricardo Hurtado, airing 11 a.m.–1 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nicktoons.
Fans are reminded that youth 18 years and younger are admitted to THE PLAYERS free of charge when accompanied by a ticketed adult, and there is no limit to the number of youth fans admitted with that ticketed adult. Youth admission makes THE PLAYERS the perfect destination for families, who only need to pay the cost of the tickets for the adults, or even a youth sports team, as the entire team can gain admission with one ticketed adult.
The Family Plan package offers additional savings and benefits for families seeking a day at THE PLAYERS. Families get two adult Stadium Passes, unlimited youth admission at the gate and two $10 concession vouchers. The Family Plan is $120 for Thursday and Sunday, $130 for Friday and $140 for Saturday (taxes not included). Parking passes are additional, but remember that any car with four or more passengers parks for free under THE PLAYERS “Four for Free” policy (download vouchers at https://theplayersparking.clickandpark.com).
