Where are we going today?
Vince's Sports Center is where you want to head if you are an active family who just LOVE sports, and having a great time!
This Delaware Sports Center is an 18-acre, family-owned experience that was established all the way back in 1981, dedicated to giving you a fantastic family day out together, so just imagine how much has been had over those years!
There are a host of fun activities for those active minds and bodies within the center to give you that great day. Fancy a spot of golf? How about taking some time to enjoy the 9 hole par 3 golf course? There is 13 acres to enjoy, and your admission allows you to play the course TWICE!
It's a great course for beginners too, so the whole family can really get involved.
For something a little more fun, the Miniature Golf is filled with fun animals, and crazy courses, with fun lighting and lots of shade. Great for those little kids!
Batter up! Batting cages are next, with a number of age appropriate batting cages. Each cage has it's own pitch speed, so you know that if you have little ones under 10 years you can choose the slower ones.
And then there is the arcade! Have a break from all that fun with...even more fun! They have hundreds of games, from the modern to the classic.
Let's not forget about the play park either, with tubes, slides, and ball pits that kids can play in.
How much fun is that!
Activities galore at Vince's Sport Center for those active families, so let's get active!

Whilst the mini golf is in the shade, it's worth taking hats and sunscreen on those hot days to protect yourselves.

Good for first timer golfers!
I need to learn shorter chips shots for some of the chip and putts, as they are under 100yds.

As a college guy trying to get back into baseball shape before the summer these cages are not sufficient. You will have horribly timed swings in these cages due to the lack of any sense of when the ball will be pitched. The only indicator is a red light showing that the cage is active. You cannot see the ball being fed into the machine and the timing between pitches is inconsistent. Also, the "fast" cages are MAYBE 65-70 mph which most high school pitchers can surpass. Proceed with caution if you have any baseball talent.

This place was one of the worst places I have been to in my entire life. I am a camp counselor and went here with the children. We ordered pizza and drinks for all the kids, and didn't think anything about it. When we picked up the pizza, a fellow customer informed me that the person who made the pizza was handling money, golf balls and who knows what else and then proceeded to make our food WITHOUT WASHING HER HANDS.

When asked about this, the cook didn't even deny that that happened, rather she responded by saying that her accuser couldn't possibly see anything from where she was sitting. Ultimately, some of our children mentioned feeling sick after eating the food, so I wouldn't go here....and if you do definitely do not eat the food.
