PickleBall


Raymond Recreation is offering a 6-week session of pickleball for adults & seniors. Pickleball will be held from 6 - 8 pm on Thursday evenings from April 4 - May 15.

What is pickleball?? To me it's like a combination of tennis and ping pong. An added bonus, you'll have so much fun you won't notice you're getting a great workout. Beginners and intermediate players welcome. Bring your own paddle or we will have some available. The fee for the 6-week program is $20. Pre-registration is required.


Barre Intensity


Barre Intensity combines attributes of pilates, dance and functional fitness training. We incorporate small isolated movement to fatigue the muscles, large range of motion to elevate the heart rate, all in a fun sequence to music. Every minute of this class keeps you moving, resulting in a total body workout that leaves you mentally strong and feeling accomplished as you build core strength. Barre intensity is for all fitness levels offering modifications or intensifications that will suit your fitness level.


The instructor for this course is Linda J. Richards. As a former dance enthusiast, Linda found the Barre workout as a way to get back into fitness & fell in love with it immediately.


This 6-week class will be held on Wednesdays at 7:15 pm and Saturdays at 9:30 am beginning April 3rd through May 11th. The fee for the 6-week class is $60. A Barre and fitness balls will be provided, but you will need to bring a yoga
