Our Monthly “Let’s Get Physical” Wallyball Event

201 Recreation Drive, Bolingbrook

After a Summer break, it's time again to get the gym bag out and pack it for a night of jocular fun!  Join WSGA for a game of Wallyball!  Wallyball is volleyball played in a Racquetball court and it is outrageously fun and a great workout.  The usual volleyball moves (whether executed well or not) are the basis of the game.  But in Wallyball the ball can be played off the walls, the ceiling and of course off your hands, head and even your butt, if need be. 

 

Only eight players are needed for a game (four per side).  Since we must have a minimum of eight players (up to twelve), this is an RSVP event.  Contact Jeff at penguinesk@comcast.net to reserve your spot today!  Two hours of court time costs $24; only $3 apiece split eight ways.  All you need to do is show up with your gym clothes and have fun!  Afterwards we’ll head out to a local watering hole to replace the toxins lost due to all the physical activity.  E-mail Jeff today!

Directions:  The Bolingbrook Park District is located roughly at the intersection of I-355 and I-55 at the Annerino Community Center, 201 Recreation Drive, Bolingbrook 60440.  Take I-355 to I-55 and go south on I-55 to the first exit, IL Route 53.  At the exit stoplight, make a right onto IL Route 53, then immediately make another right onto the I-55 North Frontage Road.  The third street on your left is Recreation Drive.  The Bolingbrook Park District is one block north.
