Business owners Tracie and Tim Riley held a Grand Opening for their new business, All About the Swing, on Saturday, January 5. The new indoor batting and training facility, located at 6467 Milford Harrington Highway, is open to baseball and softball enthusiast, players and teams of all ages seven days a week. The site includes three astroturfed batting tunnel for ball training, practice and lessons.
Tim and Tracie have been avid sports fans for years and have been involved with adult softball leagues for the past two decades. As Tim continued his love for the sport on the diamond as an adult, the couple noticed that there were few places in Delaware to practice hitting and skills during the offseason. Looking at places to host the indoor batting and training facility for over a year, Tracie and her husband were determined to answer the call for local training themselves.
“There just isn’t anything in this area to help players train in the offseaon,” commented Tracie. “We knew for a number of years that we wanted to do this but we wanted to wait until we were ready. We are the type of people that see something , want to do it and then go for it.”
Tracie and Tim hope that the facility will assist local athletes of all ages in reaching their full potential in their chosen sport. In addition to individual and team batting practice, All About the Swing, will offer lessons, clinics and a place to host events. The facility will encourage recreational and serious athletes to improve their skills in a motivating atmosphere.
“We hope that this will be a growing business and become a place where kids and adults practice,” commented Tracie. “We also hope that it gives families a reason to get the kids off their ipods and computers and moving again.”
All About the Swing is open Monday through Friday 3pm to 9pm, Saturday 10am to 9pm and
Sunday 10am to 6pm. For more information on the facility visit http://www.allabouttheswing.com.
