Our full court gymnasium provides members with many fitness opportunities including open basketball and pickup games. “Open Gym” indicates that the gym is available to shoot baskets or exercise. Pick-up basketball games are open to 20 members and guests. View schedule here.
Pickleball is a lively racket game for all ages and abilities. Pickleball is traditionally played on a badminton-sized court with special Pickleball paddles, made of wood or high-tech aerospace materials. The ball used is similar to a wiffle ball, but slightly smaller. The lower net and wiffle ball allow the game to be accessible to people of all ages and abilities, while still allowing more competitive players to test their mettle. Equipment is available to borrow at the Fitness Desk.
Pickleball is now able to be played at your leisure on our outdoor basketball court. One net will be set up for you to play when you want. Need paddles and balls? No problem, just check them out at the fitness desk. Collateral needs to be left.
Pickleball can be played with singles or doubles. The ball is served diagonally (starting with the right-hand service-square), and points can only be scored by the side that serves. Players on each side must let the ball bounce once before volleys are allowed, and there is a seven-foot no-volley zone on each side of the net, to prevent “spiking.” The server continues to serve, alternating service courts, until he or she faults. The first side scoring eleven points and leading by at least two points wins.
Our 25ft Climbing Wall is open to climbers 5 years and older who are accompanied by a J certified belayer. All climbers MUST be belayed; free climbing is not allowed. For questions and wall availability, contact Carrie Kee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
