Open Recreation

Open Recreation promotes a healthy, active lifestyle through unstructured, drop-in use of recreational facilities provided by KU Recreation Services.

Open Recreation is the foundation of KU Recreation Services and allows members to independently participate in recreation and fitness activities at their leisure for fitness and fun.

Due to KU Recreation Services COVID-19 protocols and facility modifications, there will not be scheduled open recreation times for Spring 2021, due to court availability. All spaces are set up as is, and participation is first come, first served.
