Racquetball Court Reservations

Only one reservation can be made by a patron in a day. If there is a reservation for the hour following your reservation, then you must gather your things and have the court cleared 5 minutes prior to the next reservation. If you do not show up within 5 minutes of your reservation, then you will forfeit your time.

Note: During evening hours demand for racquetball is high, equipment may not be available for checkout.

Two Court Gym

These two multi-function courts that can be used for basketball, volleyball, pickleball, futsal, and badminton. They are first come, first served and can be used for any sport dependent on the availability. Campus Recreation events and reservations always have priority to informal recreation. The courts can be reserved by departments and organizations, but may include a fee. Informal Recreation is a very important aspect of the facility, therefore reservation space may be very limited.
