Open Gym times will be available for pickleball, volleyball, basketball and other sports. The Open Gym schedule will be updated monthly and will be available for ages 8 and up. Specific rules and ages for each Open Gym program will apply. All advertised open gym programs at TPAC and other District facilities are included in the membership fee. Non-members have access to open gym at Techny Prairie Activity Center and other District locations at resident and non-resident rates.

Due to tier 3 mitigations, Open Gym will be restricted to individual skill work. Open Gym is available for TPAC members and non-members. Members may reserve time slots either online or by calling TPAC during business hours. Non-members may reserve times using the Park District online registration software, ActiveNet or on a first-come, first-served basis at the facility.
