White-sand beaches, soft-green fields and well-kept courts. These are the things dreams are made of for beach-loving athletes! For sports families, a tournament and vacation combo is a match made in paradise.
Each summer, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach welcomes thousands of families for tournaments like the USSSA Global Sports World Series, 2018 USA Softball of Alabama National Qualifier and the 2018 USTA Gulf Shores Summer Slam Tennis Tournament. When you’re not on the field or the soaking up the sun on the beach, there’s plenty to do and see on Alabama’s beaches. For lunch and a good time doing the limbo or dancing in a foam party, check out The Hangout in Gulf Shores. Waterville USA offers dozens of ways to get wet, including a lazy river, wave pool and, of course, plenty of slides to get your adrenaline pumping! Fly high with Chute for the Skye Parasail. The options are seemingly endless!
