Open Gym

The City of Montpelier Recreation Department offers a variety of Open Gym programs such as Basketball (Adult, Youth, and All Ages time blocks), Pickleball, and Dodgeball throughout the week at the Rec. Center Gym located at 55 Barre Street. Daily admission fees will be taken each day. Fees will be paid to the gym supervisor at the door. Access is for youth of all ages and adults. Youth under 13 years old must be accompanied by a parent of guardian. 

Closure Dates: Oct. 9, Nov. 10, Nov. 23 & 24, Dec. 25 and Jan 1

All participants in open gym programs are expected to conduct themselves in a cordial, respectful and non-violent manner. The city will not be held responsible for any medical costs incurred by the participant. Should the site supervisor need to remove a participant for any reason, they will lose their open gym privileges. Open time is designed for people to find other folks to play with and therefore organized teams are not permitted to use this time as practice.
