Liberty Park, an undeveloped youth sports complex at MidSouth Fairgrounds, is slated to have entertainment facilities with a bowling alley, a laser tag arena, a golf simulator, a rope course, an escape room and ax throwing.
News of the new project came Monday night when Liberty Park officials announced they were signing consultants for the project. The consultants said they signed a letter of intent with the entertainment group that will build the entertainment facility.
Project leaders said Monday they hired Bender-Carey Group as a consultant at Liberty Park to identify and secure additional development partners and sources of funding for the project. The group later announced that they signed a letter of intent with High 5 Entertainment to join the Liberty Park campus.
“We are excited to bring this opportunity to Memphis and sell Liberty Park’s narrative with this impressive team,” said Bender-Carey group president and CEO Kristie Bender-Carey. “This is an ideal opportunity zone funding situation, and as a result we have very fruitful conversations with interested parties.”
High 5, the entertainment company, plans a 65,000 square foot facility. It will feature two-story, 40,000 square feet of indoor space and a 25,000 square foot miniature outdoor golf course. It will also feature virtual reality and arcade video games, a full-service restaurant, and a bar.
“When we learned about Liberty Park and the synergy of everything there and on the way – from sports to the Children’s Museum, the neighboring campus, and the Liberty Bowl football game – we easily concluded Liberty Park was the ideal place in the community. to bring the excitement and excitement of High 5, ”said High 5 founder Scott Emley. “We know the City of Memphis has worked really hard to put together a great program for everyone living in or visiting Memphis, and we at High 5 are very humble and excited about the opportunity to join the program.”
Construction of the entertainment facility is slated to start in early 2021. Officials hope the facility will open in the 2022 holiday season.
Due to Covid-19 and the chaos that ensues in the 2020 college football season, there will be fewer bowl matches than usual to close the season. Since all teams are eligible for bowls regardless of record, prestige or health, we can expect a lot from the usual match to move around a bit.
There are currently bowl projections for 2-7 South Carolina going into bowl games, which means we see a team that doesn’t have any business playing in the postseason likely to take their place deserved. Power Five schools that want extra practice time or income to take up as much available space as they want, regardless of the usual bowl contracts and conference affiliations.

LUBBOCK, Texas (November 30, 2020) – The Lone Star Conference releases its 2020-21 women’s basketball schedule on November 23, which is 20 of Lubbock Christian University’s scheduled 22 matches, and has a December 11 LCU tipping-off inside the Rip Griffin Center against St. Petersburg. Mary’s. Monday, the LCU finished part of their schedule with the addition of non-conference matches and the announcement of home fixtures.
Recently, East New Mexico and Western New Mexico both opted out of the 2020-21 basketball schedule due to state New Mexico health guidelines related to COVID-19. Western New Mexico will play the LCU twice at the Rip Griffin Center (11-12 February), and the two matches will be the LCU’s only non-conference contest.
The updated schedule features regular season matches starting on Friday, December 11 with a crossover contest, while division play begins in January 2021 following the NCAA Division II Winter Break.
This year, 15 men’s and 15 women’s teams will compete in three divisions (North, South and West), each consisting of five institutions. Each team is scheduled to play 20 conference matches with division and crossover competitions throughout the year. During weeks in which a team plays against a division, each institution will have one game at home and one away. When a team faces an opponent from outside its division, both crossover games will be played at the same site on consecutive days.
The modified “bubble” schedule format increases student-athlete safety regarding COVID-19 and reduces the number of contacts between teams by playing the same opponent twice a week.
The conference tournament will consist of the top eight men’s and women’s teams, with first-round matches on campus on Tuesday, March 2, followed by the four winning teams progressing to last place in the remaining top seeds on Friday, March 5 and Saturday, March 6. .
LCU is located in the Western Division, which has Angelo State, Midwestern State, UT Permian Basin and West Texas A&M joining Lady Chaps. The LCU first division matches are scheduled for January 14, 2021 at Angelo State.
The LCU’s COVID-19 regulations will make the Rip Griffin Center a 50% capacity. Season admission holders will be notified of their seat placement prior to the first home match. Student-athletes will receive their pass list (as usual), and an allotment of 100 tickets per match will be available to general LCU students. All home match tickets and spectator policies are subject to change for each match. For games that allow fans, 300 tickets will be available (admission includes men’s and women’s games on these dates) for the general public on www.lcuchaps.com/tickets.
The Lone Star Conference also announced details of a new hybrid pricing model for the LSC Digital Network starting with winter and spring 2020-21. Men’s and women’s volleyball broadcast as well as basketball games will be available via pay-per-view (PPV) conferencing under the new model. Fans can purchase a daily ticket for $ 10 which will give them access to all of the LSC football, volleyball and basketball contests on the network that day, as well as access to previously broadcast games from the current season for 24 hours. In addition to the live and archived options, viewers will have the option to purchase and download games from the 2020-21 season for $ 10 each.Certain games from all other sports brought on the LSC Digital Network will be available free-to-view (FTV) or PPV at the discretion of the broadcasting institution.
