From karate to swimming to racquetball, the YMCA offers a variety of options for fun and healthy activities for adults of all fitness levels

Pickleball is a racquet sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis. Players use solid paddles made of wood or composite material to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to wiffleball, over a net. 

**Coming Soon! Pickleball will be available on Court 3 at the SwedishAmerican Riverfront YMCA. A maximum of two players per court will be allowed, and both players must be pre-registered for the time slot in order to access the building. More details to come soon.


Racquetball will be available on courts 4, 5 and 6 at the SwedishAmerican Riverfront YMCA. Advanced registration is required by both players. Click to learn more and secure your timeslot.

Items to note:
*2 players maximum per court.
*BOTH players need to be pre-registered. If you call, our team can help with signing up another player, OR you can both register online. This is for capacity/court space reasons, but also required by state law.
*45-minute time slots are available.
*Please wear a facial covering when entering, exiting or while in common areas. You do NOT need to wear it while exercising. 
*Bring a water bottle. Drinking fountains are for bottle filling only.
