Contender eSports Cary is dedicated to building character and life skill development through productive video gaming. We offer a fun, innovative, and educational gaming experience.
We take precautions by having a sign on the door asking people to wear masks. We also wipe down every station after it is used and do a full clean of the facility at least 3 times per week.
