Summer is nearly here, and with it brings a change in hours at the Casper Recreation Center.  Beginning May 13, the Rec Center will be open Monday through Friday from 5:00 am-8:00 pm, Saturdays from 8:00 am-6:00 pm, and Sundays from 1:00-6:00 pm.  Summer hours also bring a new schedule for drop-in sports times at the Recreation Center.  Drop-in pickleball, basketball, and volleyball will be offered at the times listed below.

 

Pickleball is a game 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. Pickleball is easy to learn and will quickly grow into a fast-paced, competitive, and fun game!  Pickleball is also played in the Wyoming Senior Olympics that will be held here in Casper in July.  Drop-in Pickleball is currently held Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 10:00-11:00 am and will also be held on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 pm beginning May 13.

Starting May 13, drop-in basketball times will be available most of the time the Rec Center is open, but times may be subject to change due to rentals and special events.

Also starting May 13, drop-in volleyball will be held on Saturdays from 3:00-6:00 pm and Sundays from 4:00-6:00 pm.

Admission to drop-in programs is $3.50 per day, which includes use of the Rec Center, and is free for those with a Rec Center membership.  All equipment for drop-in sports is available for loan at the Rec Center front desk.
