STAY ACTIVE

Practicing a recreational sport has multiple benefits for adults, just as they do for kids and teens. Some of the benefits of practicing sports as an adult are stress management, self-esteem, motivation and physical and mental health. 

Sports also provide opportunities for social connection and building community, which can be just as important. From young adults to seniors, we offer something for everyone. 

For adults, we offer:

  • Outdoor Soccer

  • Softball

  • Pickleball

  • Racquetball

  • Tennis

  • Volleyball

Pickleball

Pickleball is offered at Bryan Y, Eden Y, Ragsdale Y, Reidsville Y and Spears Y.

Once you’ve played it, the attraction of pickleball—for seniors, especially—is clear. It’s fast-paced, low-impact, and familiar; anyone who’s played a racquet sport before can quickly get the hang of it. Because the court is small (it can fit into half or even a third of a tennis court), and doubles games are standard, players run a lot less than they would in tennis.

Pickleball Team at the Eden YMCA

Come join the pickleball team at the Eden Y! Anyone is welcome to join and participate. All you need is a competitive spirit!

When? Monday through Thursday from 11am to 1pm in the Youth Gym.

Questions? Contact Pete Baker at [email protected].

Racquetball

Offered at the Eden YMCA!

The following policy has been developed to ensure that every Y member has the opportunity to enjoy the racquetball courts:

A member 16 and over may reserve a court up to and no more than three (3) times per week and only once a day. Members 14 and 15 may reserve courts with professional or full-time staff approval only. Any member under 16 may play with an adult at any time. A player may play in only one time slot per day. This is to ensure that three or four people cannot dominate court time. Reservations for the day will be taken beginning at 5:00 a.m. Anyone who wishes to reserve the court for 5:00 a.m. may call after 6:00 p.m. the previous night.

Thank you very much for your cooperation concerning this policy. We feel it will allow each of our members the maximum opportunity to enjoy the courts.

For more information, please contact Pete Baker at 336.623.8496.

Racquetball courts will close promptly at 9pm. Monday—Thursday, 7:45pm on Friday and 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.
