How can I get to the rec center if i live downtown?

What types of payments do you accept?

We accept all major credit cards, not including American express. We do not accept cash or check. At this time, we do not accept Mountie Bounty.

What is the difference between club and intramural sports?

Intramural sports are generally the least competitive and lowest commitment athletic option in college. Intramurals are organized by the college and available to everyone regardless of their athletic talent or experience with the sport

Club sports are typically student-run (with support or sponsorship from the school) and fall in between the more casual atmosphere of intramural sports and seriously competitive varsity sports.  College club sports teams play against other schools, travel for competitions, and even compete for championships .

Do I have to reserve a court to play basketball?

Our multipurpose courts are typically first-come, first-serve during open recreation hours. Because our facility is funded and operationally run by WVU students, they are our top priority. Please see our  open recreation schedule for times when the courts are open to basketball.
