Esports Gaming

The Grayslake Park District is partnering with GGLeagues and other Illinois Park Districts to offer a statewide Illinois Recreation Esports League! Sign up to represent Grayslake in this statewide virtual challenge!

What are Esports?
Esports describes the world of competitive, organized video gaming often referred to simply as “gaming.” Competitors from different leagues or teams face off in the same games that are popular with at-home gamers.

We’re partnering with GGLeagues to offer Esports to the Grayslake community. GGLeagues is an Esports management platform that is focused on making gaming a social experience for players.

How do I sign up?
Gamers will be placed in one of three divisions depending on skill level, regardless of age. Set up your account at www.ggleagues.com and register for the league. Click here for registration instructions.
