Effective August 16, 2021: Masks are required for indoor use at all times covering one’s nose and mouth. Please help us keep our Rec facilities fully operational by doing your part and masking up.

We are excited to start a new academic year. While we work through our reopening phases, we ask that you be patient collaborators that support our efforts. The university continues to guide us through these challenging times. We kindly ask that you mask up while covering your nose and mouth so we can keep the areas we have available fully operational.

There will be spaces that remain dedicated to the university’s COVID-19 testing response. There will be spaces that will reopen in phases this semester, including the outdoor rec center, pool, and climbing wall. Our spaces may have different functions to meet our evolving needs. Spaces have priorities whether it be for varsity athletics or student programming, among other entities. We encourage you to continue to keep up with our work by visiting our website.

For questions please contact recdirector@vanderbilt.edu.

Effective September 27, 2021: Gym Court Free Play Reservations

During peak hours of the week (Sunday through Friday 4pm to 10pm), the Rec is moving to a Free Play reservation system. When gym courts are not reserved for Rec programming, Gym Court 1 will be prioritized for free play basketball, Gym Court 2 will be prioritized for free play volleyball, and Gym Court 3 will be prioritized for free play badminton.

Gym Courts will be limited to 15 individuals per court for 1-hour reservations. Individuals may make one 1-hour reservation per day. Reservations can be made 48 hours in advance. Check-in will occur at Gym Court 1’s main doors and/or the Welcome Desk. Gym courts will be emptied out after a reservation hour has been completed.

During non-peak hours of the week, a Free Play reservation is not required and the gym courts are open for come and go use.

The Rec will continue to close the Gym Courts nightly at 10pm. Additionally, the Rec has the authority to close the Gym Courts at any time due to lack of staffing and mask adherence.
