Senior Fitness

The Dover Community Senior Center has a wonderful opportunity for members to use the fitness area of Dover Recreation, Monday through Friday from 8am - 12noon for a $5 yearly surcharge as part of their Senior Center membership. The fitness area includes a Cybex circuit room, cardio and free weight rooms, and a warm up cool down area with mats, exercise balls, and flex bands.

Summer Schedule:  We play pickleball at the dedicated outdoor courts located behind the Garrison Elementary School on Tuesday mornings from 8:30am - 11:00am and Friday mornings from 8:30-11am.  Start times can vary based on weather and courts conditions so you need to be a member to receive email updates.

This program is free for members but we do require a completed waiver.  Members must wear clean athletic shoes and bring water with them.  Please check with your physician before participating in any exercise program. New players must participate in a beginner class or have previous playing experience.  We are not currently offering any beginner classes due to the size of our current group & space constraints, but we are happy to refer you to other local facilities that you can learn to play.
