Wings Etc. Grill & Pub introduces industry-leading sports simulator entertainment in a new business unit called “Swings™,” which will offer guests interactive play with sports such as golf, football, soccer, hockey, baseball, and more.

NEWBURGH, Ind. (Feb. 21, 2022)— The Wings Etc. Grill & Pub sports bar in Newburgh, Ind. is a popular spot for food, drink, and HDTV sports watching, and now there’s something new that’s expected to bring guests out of their seats and into more active participation: full-size sports simulators. The new business unit, called “Swings™,” connects Wings Etc. fans to new opportunities for parties, date nights, group activities and general “get up, get moving” events.

“Swings takes fans to the next level of gameplay, and we’re really excited to offer this at our Newburgh location,” said Wings Etc. Newburgh franchise owner Manish Malhotra. “Now, guests will be able to test their game skills in a controlled environment while also grabbing some of their favorite wings, burgers, wraps, and drinks. It’s fun to watch sports and it’s even more fun to play along with friends and family.”

Swings will connect to Wings Etc. Newburgh’s dining room at 8833 High Point Drive and will use technology from Full Swing Simulators, a San Diego-based company specializing in cutting-edge sports simulation. Currently, Full Swing Simulators integrates 13 highly engaging, multi-sport software products, including football, baseball, soccer, hockey, and golf. The golf simulator, one of the more popular games the technology includes, features 84 Championship Golf Courses.

Full Swing Simulators boasts ambassadors and PGT Tour Players Tiger Woods, Justin Rose, Jordan Spieth, Jason Day, Aaron Wise, Brandt Snedeker, Jim Furyk, the LPGA’s Brooke Henderson, the NBA’s Steph Curry, and the NFL’s Patrick Mahomes.

Woods, who installed the simulation technology in his home as it allows him to work with leading software that shows real ball flight in real-time with no delay, stated that, “The technology allows me to shape my shots like no other simulator. Rain or shine, day or night, I can get my practice in.”

Swings at Wings Etc. Newburgh will have three multisport simulation bays, and is expected to open in mid-March, timed for the beginning of college basketball tournaments.
