Summer at Newton Parks and Recreation

 Tennis is a sport that can be played at any age. Although some seniors may be less mobile than younger players, they can still learn to play the game and accrue numerous health benefits from playing, such as improved cardio and bone density. Tennis is held at the Warren House Courts on Washington Street in West Newton. Join us on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8-10AM.

Pickleball Summer Season: Summer Pickleball is played at the Pelligrini Tennis Courts, located at 11 Hawthorne Street in Newton. We play from 6-8PM on Wednesday nights. ($3 Donation per session)
July 13th Kayak Trip: Our first kayak trip on the Charles River this year is sponsored by Boating in Boston. Join us at the historic boat house for an hour of paddling on the River. Enjoy light refreshments and a short historic talk when we return. Space is limited.
Travel: Summer day trips scheduled to the Theatre by the Sea in RI to see Beauty and the Beast on July 26th and to the Popponesset Resort in Mashpee on August 16th. Bocce is a sport that is both exciting and has a low exertion level. The rules are very basic and once you learn them, you will be able to start right away. We play on Monday afternoons through the summer and early fall from 2-4PM. We offer lots of fun, exercise, friendship and free lessons for beginners.

Golf League: The Newton Senior Golf League meets at the Commonwealth Golf Course on Tuesday mornings at 9:00 AM. This course offers a short but challenging round of golf featuring quick greens and relatively narrow fairways. We host several tournaments throughout the season and end with our annual banquet in October. Registration is required and the weekly cost is $26 for 9 holes. Summer Aquatics: Increase your physical activity without stress on your joints. Swimming skills are not necessary. Summer Aquatics meets at the Gath Pool Monday through Friday 12:15-1:00 PM during the months of July and August. This is a great way exercise, cool off and have lots of fun!
