Open Recreation:

Provides Wellesley students the time and space to practice their own definition of wellness in the context of recreation. Come play volleyball, basketball, soccer and more.  Have you seen the lawn games being used around campus? Open Recreation is an excellent time to play cornhole, kan jam or spike ball. Hone your skills with these games so that next time you see them at an event, you are well prepared. Not into sports? No problem! You can use the multipurpose gym space for anything - yoga, stretching, dance, etc. Possible Activities Include: Badminton, Basketball, Dodgeball, Squash, Tennis, Pickleball, Spike ball, Hula hoops, Kan jam, Soccer nets & Your own space for your own activity

Equipment can be Rented at the Front Desk. You can always find our Open Recreation student worker behind the front desk in a lime green Wellesley Recreation shirt. They will be able to provide you with any equipment you may want, can help you with rules, or equipment set up.  They are there to help you!

Hours are open to ALL students every TUESDAY and FRIDAY from 4-6PM during the academic year in the Multipurpose Gym located on the second floor of the KSC.
