About Sport Clubs
The Sport Clubs program provides high quality competitive and instructional sport opportunities for members of the University community. Ultimately, Sport Clubs enhance the collegiate and educational experiences of their members. The competitive aspect of the Clubs allows their members to compete against other intercollegiate sport teams, while the instructional aspect of Clubs offers members the chance to enhance their skills in a sport activity. The Sport Club program currently supports 25 clubs, with sports ranging from Aikido to Rugby to Water Polo. Each club is open to members of the University community, although some host try-outs to maintain a manageable roster.

URWC Court Spaces to Receive Upgrades
RecWell is excited to announce that the URWC North Building court sport areas will be renovated in the upcoming months. For almost 20 years these areas have been re-purposed to serve the growing demand for additional cardiovascular and strength training equipment for open recreation use. The opening of the South Building significantly eased the burden of lack of fitness equipment space, and RecWell has the opportunity to return these courts to their original, intended purpose. Construction is slated to begin in December. Renovations and Improvements North Courts Corridor (Squash) Squash Courts #20 and #21 had been re-purposed to build our small group training and personal training programs. With additional space in other areas of the RecWell complex, we are able to begin moving equipment out of these courts immediately, with no impact on open recreation use. Courts #18 and #19, which currently contain free weight equipment, will be refurbished, and will be play-ready sometime during spring semester. The glass enclosure outside of these courts will be removed, creating ample lounge and gathering space for open recreation, physical activity program (PAP), and Squash Scholar players. North Courts - Strength Training Equipment RecWell has spent a considerable amount of time and energy building and supporting the court community through programming, events, education and physical activity classes. The handball, racquetball, and squash players, in particular, have been greatly impacted by the re-purposing of these courts for the past two decades. We are appreciative to this community for being patient and loyal as we’ve made accommodations to meet fitness equipment demands. Renovating the squash courts will require us to remove and re-locate some strength training equipment. Plans are currently underway to re-organize certain spaces in the North Building, complimenting the new free weight and plate loaded spaces in the South Building. The department is confident that there is now sufficient space in the North and South buildings to meet the demand for members desiring to train using free weights and plate-loaded equipment. South Courts Corridor (Handball/Racquetball) The South Corridor will be re-organized to serve the needs and interests of several populations, as well. Cardiovascular equipment options for open recreation will remain, as will recreational table tennis. We will add lounge style furniture to the entryway of the corridor, and additional bleacher-style seating will be added to accommodate PAP classes, and for spectators during large events. The corridor will also house the new Minnesota Handball Hall of Fame. Next Steps This project will begin on December 20th and is expected to be completed sometime in early 2014. RecWell appreciates your patience as the courts are being reverted.
