Sports Challenge America is planned on about 5 acres between the Bonita Springs Poker Room and the former dog track that broke ground on March 29, 2022.[1] The local venture will be owned and operated by Miami-based Magic City Casino and is being developed by PBS Contractors. An opening date is yet to be determined.



The 10,400-square-foot building will include six bowling lanes and five sports simulators for virtual sports such as golf and tennis. The exterior includes a par-3 golf hole where participants wagering on themselves.

In addition to the hole-in-one challenge, participants can wager on themselves on a variety of other sporting activities, said Mario Valle, senior relationship manager for PBS Contractors. 

“There’ll be a basketball court, where there will be different shooting activities. There’ll be a mini baseball facility where you can throw from the pitcher’s mound, home plate or throw from behind home plate to second base to get an experience of what it’s like to be in a Major League-type of baseball facility,” Valle said. “And, then there’ll be a half, shortened football facility where you can kick field goals or throw passes into different activities.  So, there’ll be different activities where you can wager on yourself to win prizes based on an element or two that you’re going to have to pay for.”

The venue plans to only be open evenings and weekends with tournaments Friday nights, Saturdays and Sundays.
