Looking for a way to get active that is more involved than just working out? Check out the Marshalltown YMCA-YWCA's sports and recreation opportunities.
Whether you're interested in an exciting, engaging way to exercise or you like a little friendly competition, there's sure to be a sport for you. Choose from team sports or one-on-one fun. Ongoing leagues and open play opportunities are also both available, depending on what suits you best.
Pickleball is a combination of ping-pong, badminton and tennis. The game is played by two or four people using paddles and a wiffle ball. Equipment: An easy set-up net, paddles and balls are available for check-out at the Welcome Center Desk.
