Drop in sports offered

As the season changes and the weather becomes cooler, adult sports in Rimbey remains a viable option

As the season changes and the weather becomes cooler, adult sports in Rimbey remains a viable option for those who wish to leave their couch potato image behind and get moving.

Recreation director Rick Kreklewich said drop in badminton and volleyball are now ongoing at the community centre.

Anyone who wants to grab a badminton racket and exercise their skill or improve their lack of skill may do so at the gymnasium at the community centre from 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday nights.

And anyone who wants to give volleyball a try is welcome to do so Tuesday nights from 7 to 9 p.m.

Both sports are set up on a drop in basis, so no one needs to feel pressured to attend each week, but only when they are free to do so.

And for those who prefer walking, the halls at Rimbey Junior/Senior High School are open and ready for use Monday to Thursdays from 6 to 8 p.m.

“You can walk around the school in whatever pattern you wish to,” said Kreklewich. “It’s simply a nice, cozy place to exercise without having to go out in the cold.”

The school is available for those who wish to walk because of a joint use agreement with the town which was set up last year.
