Families have one more reason to attend THE PLAYERS Championship this year, as Nickelodeon and the PGA Tour join forces to provide new activities in the McKenzie Noelle Wilson Foundation Kid Zone.
The Kid Zone is one of the family-friendly offerings at this year’s tournament, to be held May 9-14 at TPC Sawgrass.
“THE PLAYERS is committed to making the tournament a shrine to golf fans, and Nickelodeon is an ideal addition to the McKenzie Noelle Wilson Foundation Kid Zone as a leader in entertainment for kids worldwide,” said Jared Rice, executive director of THE PLAYERS Championship. “We’re excited to offer even more fun activities during tournament week for kids, and kids at heart.”
New in 2017, 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.
Nickelodeon will also bring kids at home into the action with new, golf-themed content and exclusive coverage of the on-the-ground events leading up to THE PLAYERS in the “NickSports Presents Golf Rocks Weekend” Friday, May 12, through Sunday, May 14, on Nicktoons. Hosted by avid golfer and Nick star Breanna Yde, “NickSports Presents Golf Rocks Weekend” will present interstitials offering a behind-the-scenes look at the tournament, highlights from Nickelodeon’s Kid Zone activation, interviews with PGA Tour players and more.
Fans ages 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. In addition, the Family Plan package offers 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 any car with four or more passengers parks for free under THE PLAYERS “Four for Free” policy (download vouchers at https://theplayersparking.clickandpark.com).
