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 Rec West gym on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11 am until 12:30 pm 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 table tennis. The big gym is packed with players, from novice to pro, on Mondays and Fridays 12:30-3:30 pm. Free. Registration not required.
