Sports

Short Tennis

Pass holders can play a mini version of tennis three days per week using a shorter court, lower net, softer ball and smaller racket. The rules of the game are pretty much the same as regular tennis and it's just as much fun. Head to the RecPlex West gym on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11a until 12:30p to see if short tennis is the game for you.

Table Tennis

If you want a great workout fueled by a little competition, try a rousing game of doubles table tennis. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 12:30-3:30 pm, the big gym at RecPlex West is packed with Intermediate-Advanced players honing their skills. Registration is required and the cost is $2.50 for pass holders, $3 for residents and $4 for non-residents. 

Pickleball

This fun and active paddle sport combines elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis. Pickleball is available fall, winter and spring on Sundays from 1:30-3:30p. Registration is required and the cost is $2.50 for pass holders, $3 for residents and $4 for nonresidents.
