Many opportunities were opened to Carbon Recreation with the relocation of the office to the Carbon County Events Center. However, those in the community may not be aware of all that is available for themselves, their family and all that wish to enjoy recreational activities.
Daily, the center is open to the community for various events or activities. Monday boasts open gym for $4 and batting cages for just $20 per hour per cage, Tuesday features archery, Wednesday plays host to a cornhole tournament and batting cages while Thursday and Friday also feature the cages. Open gym is not available on those days due to Jr. Jazz practices being hosted those evenings.
Additional information on archery and the cornhole tournament can be found by visiting the calendar on Carbon Recreation’s website.
The weekend also brings opportunities as there is open gym, batting cages and Little Eagles basketball from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Some exciting events are upcoming at the center as well. Friday, Feb. 8 will feature a movie night at 6 p.m. on the center’s blow-up screen and Feb. 15 will play host to a Sweetheart Ball featuring live music from the well-known Jeff Keele Band. This event begins at 6:30 p.m. with a dinner. The live entertainment will follow at 7:30 p.m. and entry is $20 per person. Lasagna will be served.
Also upcoming is the registration deadline for the pickleball tournament, which is March 14. The cost is $75 per team.
Rooms at the center may also be rented out hourly. Basketball, archery, tennis, golf and spike ball may be set up and Carbon Rec urges individuals to contact the office if their sport is not featured.
“It is not just an event center,” stated Scott Merrell with Carbon Recreation.
