Residents are invited to take part in the Town of Oyster Bay’s fall adult co-ed badminton and adult co-ed volleyball programs, Councilman Anthony D. Macagnone announced. The programs are open to players who are 18 and older and will be held at the Town of Oyster Bay Hicksville Athletic Center.
The badminton program begins Sunday, Oct. 4 and will be conducted on Thursdays from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m., Fridays from 9 to 10:30 p.m., and Sundays from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m. The volleyball program begins Tuesday, Oct. 6 and will be held on Mondays and Tuesdays from 9 to 10:30 p.m., and Saturdays from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m. The programs, which are 12 weeks in duration, are $75 for residents and $100 for non-residents. Proof of residency is required for the discount.
“In addition to being fun, badminton and volleyball provide excellent forms of aerobic exercise that improve your health and even add extra years to your life,” Macagnone said. “This fall marks a great opportunity for residents to take advantage of these terrific programs.”
Macagnone noted that registration for both programs will take place at the Town of Oyster Bay Hicksville Athletic Center, 167 Broadway in Hicksville, on Thursday, Sept. 17 from 7 to 9 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 19 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Following these dates, registration will continue based on availability. Note that the schedule may be subject to change and residents are encouraged to inquire about special holiday scheduling.
“Residents should sign up for these co-ed activities not only for the positive health benefits, but for the social aspect as well,” Macagnone said. “The town’s co-ed programs are an excellent way to advance health while making new friends.”
