With winter weather coming soon, it’s time to look at options for exercise and fun indoors.

The Sportsplex offers recreational badminton and volleyball each week, and you can drop-in for $7 each time you play or register to play until December.

Badminton takes place on Tuesdays from 7:30-9:30 p.m. The supervisor organizes playing partners on the courts and supplies racquets and birdies. With six courts, there’s plenty of playing time.

Weekly Family Badminton starts Oct. 11. The whole family can drop in Tuesdays from 5-7 p.m. That includes cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents (minimum of one adult with kids) for $2 per person.

Play with your family members or challenge another family while you spend quality time together and enjoy the many benefits of physical activity, including stronger bones and muscles and mastery of skills.

On Wednesdays, volleyball action takes place from 7:30-9:30 p.m. Each week new teams are organized, with six teams on three courts.

Another option is to try the courts for a game of racquetball, squash or wallyball. The prime-time drop in fee is $7 per person for the racquetball or squash courts or $22 for a wallyball court for six to eight people.

Rates are half price weekdays from 6 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.

Equipment rental is $2 for a full racquetball or squash court package. Equipment is included in the wallyball rental.

For more information call the Sportsplex at 250-923-7911.
