RADAR SKIS Eastern Region Water Ski Championships, hosted by Timberlake Water Ski Club - July 20-23, 2022 in Sparta, VA

Make your plans now to visit Virginia this summer and compete or support our water skiers at the RADAR SKIS Eastern Regionals, hosted by Timberlake Water Ski Club. The club is hard at work to make your experience a great one. Our lake has been host to three-event tournaments regularly since the mid 1990s including one previous Regional championships and numerous Virginia State championships. We have a thriving Junior Development program with yearly camps and clinics. We welcome you to our little bit of ski paradise.

This event is made even better thanks to the support of our Gold sponsors: RADAR SKIS, Drainfield Solutions, Peace Love & WaterSkiing, Lohr’s Lake Water Skiers, pillar2post Digital Media and Concierge Pet Medicine. Contact TG Powell if you’d like to add your name to the list.

There’s plenty to do in the area around Timberlake. Washington DC with the Smithsonian Museums and an abundance of history and culture is less than a 2 hour drive to the north. Head south and within an hour you’ll reach Kings Dominion Theme park and the state capitol, Richmond. Continue on for another 45 minutes and you’ll reach Colonial Williamsburg, where you can experience a living history of colonial days.
If you just can’t get enough skiing, then make your way to Peace, Love & Water Skiing, just over an hour’s drive to the west of Timberlake. Plan ahead as I’m sure Corey will be busy that entire month.
Visit skitimberlake.com for all the information. We’ll be updating the site regularly.
