Indoor Sports for Families

Great Indoor FAMILY Fun!

Spend some quality time with your children in the Margulis Gymnasium!

Parents and their preschool and grade school children are invited to join the Sports & Recreation staff for some family fun in the Margulis Gymnasium.

Badminton

Badminton is a racquet sport played by either two opposing players (singles) or two opposing pairs (doubles), who take positions on opposite halves of a rectangular court that is divided by a net. Players score points by striking a shuttlecock with their racquet so that it passes over the net and lands in their opponents' half of the court. A rally ends once the shuttlecock has struck the ground. The shuttlecock may only be struck once by each side before it passes over the net

 

Ga Ga

is a form of dodge ball that is thought to have originated in Israel. "Ga" (גע) means "touch" in Hebrew. Ga-Ga is one of the most popular Israeli folk sports. Ga-Ga is played within any space that is completely enclosed by surrounding walls. The objective of the game is to eliminate players by hitting a ball with an open hand or fist into the region at or below his or her waist. That player is then out and must leave the playing area. The winner is the last player left in the playing area.

 

Pickleball

Pickleball is a racquet sport similar to badminton and tennis. It involves the use of a wooden paddle and a wiffle ball. Pickleball is intended to be a fun sport for the entire family to enjoy.

 

Kan Jam

is an interactive game that is played with four players, two goals (cans) and one flying disc (frisbee). Each team consists of two players who play the game simultaneously by tossing and "jamming" the frisbee into the goal. Games last up to 21 points and even feature an "Instant Win" slot which automatically ends the game!

 

Obstacle Course

Perfect for the preschool child. Slide, tunnel, wedge mats, balance beam, mini trampoline etc.
