VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A Terre Haute business is competing among the biggest cities in the United States - that is when it comes to professional gaming.

When you walk through the doors of eBash you'll find a packed house of teenagers.

It’s an attraction that's now getting national attention! They are one of only 16 locations in the country to host a professional gaming competition.

Zack Johnson started the business in Terre Haute 13 years ago. Now people are traveling out of state to come to this hot spot.

"I'm a local guy who played basketball through college here in town and i love competition and we used to love 3 on 3 basketball competitions and for us that's what this is -- the next generation of competition," Johnson stated.

Now, huge companies like Coca Cola are reaching out to sponsor players at E-Bash because of their success.
