The St. James Celebrates First Anniversary With Homecoming Party

When the area’s largest indoor sports and recreation facility celebrates its first anniversary, it’s not just a party, it’s a Homecoming.

The 450,000 square foot complex, The St. James winds up its debut year with a family-friendly open house on Saturday, September 21, from 1-5 p.m.

The sports club — which boasts two full-size turf fields, two NHL regulation-sized ice rinks, an Olympic-sized pool, hardwood basketball and volleyball courts, a climbing and bouldering wall, a 50,000-square-foot fitness center and a waterpark for kids — is just off I-95 and I-495 in Springfield.

On Saturday, the 20-acre facility opens its doors in a Homecoming celebration, with field-day games, live music, swag giveaways and meet-and-greet appearances by Washington Redskins players Derrius Guice and Dwayne Haskins. Activities include Zorb soccer, life-size foozball and freeze tag; the Squash & Golf House will be the scene of simulated closest-to-the-pin and longest-drive contests; “halftime” sees a performance by a local marching band.

Energizing Grab-and-Go Bites, prepared by Chef Spike Mendelsohn’s Vim & Victor, and beverages will be on hand.

As a bonus, complimentary admission to the water park runs from 5-8 p.m.

The St. James is located at 6805 Industrial Road, Springfield. For information, call 703-239-6870 or visit Stay up to date on Facebook and Twitter.
