Affinity Esports Birthday Parties!

The team at Affinity Esports will ensure your birthday girl/boy will have a stellar day alongside their closest friends while making it as easy as possible on the host! They will open the main room, which plays host to 15 computers, a big screen TV, and a Nintendo Switch. Party guests will have access to games that have been rating approved by the hosting family including titles like Super Smash Bros, Knockout City, Mario Kart, Minecraft, and many others (when approved, the party can have access to T for Teen titles such as Fortnite, APEX Legends, and Valorant). Decorations/balloons, pizza, a customized cake, and refreshments will also be provided for the kids to enjoy!

Parties are generally offered on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00am – 1:00pm however if the space is available, the team will do their best to accommodate. Parties are designed for up to 10 kids however they can accommodate up to 20 if needed at an additional cost. The cost is $500 with a 50% deposit to secure the date and the final 50% on the day of the party.


Here what parents are saying:

“Celebrating my son’s birthday with his friends at Affinity Esports was a fantastic idea! The kids loved it and have kept asking me to go back. Mark and Jarryd were awesome. Thanks for this amazing initiative and helping me make my son’s birthday an incredible experience, from the games to the party, everything was great! I have no doubt about the importance of what you’re doing. To have these kids playing their favorite games and sports within a supervised environment, where mutual respect is fostered and encouraged is exactly what our kids need. Gaming used to be perceived as an unhealthy hobby for kids with no social skills. You guys are showing the world what it really is by turning it into the same memorable experiences we had when we were children. And our kids get to learn from you on how to be successful at their own favorite games and to enjoy the whole experience!? Kudos Affinity Esports! Well done!!” ~ Rui (Parent)

“…Mark and Jarryd were so easy to work with. Once we had the date picked and the guests invited, they handled all the other details….food, drinks, cake, decorations.  It was the easiest birthday party we have ever planned!  The party was well organized and the kids had a blast!  I can not say enough good things about the experience!  I highly recommend having your child’s next birthday party at Affinity Esports!” ~ Christine and Forrest Irwin (Parents)
