About Raquetball - Racquetball
is a unique sport. Unlike most racquet sports, there is no net to hit
the ball over and no tin to hit the ball above. Also, the court's
walls, floor and ceiling are legal playing surfaces with only the
upper part of the back wall (above 12 feet) being out-of-bounds.

- Family times
- Aquacise courses
- Adult and child swim programs
