On Friday, November 4, we are hosting an event to thank generous Badgers who helped make the Nicholas Recreation Center and other significant campus improvements possible. In order to accommodate this event, the following spaces will be closed November 3 – 5:

  • Courts 3-6 will be closed all day Thursday, November 3 through Saturday, November 5.
  • Level 4, Courts 7-8, and Spark Studio will be closed all day on Friday, November 4. In addition, Momentum Studio will be closed starting at 9am through the end of the day and Elevation Studio will be closed at 1:30pm through the end.

Given these closures, there are also a handful of changes to the group fitness schedule:

Friday, November 4

  • 4:00pm Zumba cancelled
  • 4:45pm Bags & Bells cancelled
  • 5:00 Yoga moved to Balance
  • 5:15pm Group Strength cancelled

We understand these closures may be inconvenient and appreciate your understanding and flexibility. While these spaces are unavailable, here are a few other places you can still play hard, get fit, and live well:

  • Courts 1 and 2 at the Nick will be available Thursday through Sunday for open rec basketball and open rec volleyball on Friday. Courts 7 and 8 will be available for open rec badminton and pickleball on Thursday and Sunday. There are also four courts at the Shell, which is located by Camp Randall Stadium. (Please note, the Shell is a shared use facility with Athletics and closes between 1:30 – 5pm on weekdays for track and field practice. Check Daily Schedules for more information.
  • There is additional exercise equipment at the Shell and Holt Fitness Center, both of which are open to all UW-Madison students.
