Pickleball is a fun game that is played on a badminton court with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center. It is played with a perforated plastic baseball (similar to a whiffle ball) and wood or composite paddles. It is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. Join us!

Water exercise

Water exercise classes provide a total body workout using the resistance of the water. Support of the water allows little strain or jarring of the joints. Benefits include cardio-vascular endurance, muscle strengthening & flexibility. No swimming skills necessary.

H20X (Water Excercise) is a high-energy aerobic class, which can be done at your own pace.

Rusty Hinges is a gentle workout for people with arthritisor MS - American Arthritis Foundation approved.

Deep H20X is held in the deep end of the pool using "noodles" to aid in flotation while treading water.

FIT is the next level in the American Arthritis Foundation Classes, developed to utilize deep water to help manage pain, stiffness and fatigue.
