Collegians, young professionals and other adventure-seekers rummaged through their sports bags in preparation for a dusk warm-up on the Silver Bowl Park field. Late-arriving Las Vegas Ultimate Frisbee team members trickled onto the portion of the field claimed for their weekly practice, stretching and exchanging hellos. They began with a few quick laps, followed by a Frisbee toss at their 7 p.m. start time, with more than 40 people pairing off into twos across the green.
In Las Vegas, the phrase “swimming pool” is a bit oxymoronic. That’s because our pools—from multi-lagoon casino complexes to puddles at dayclubs to the floatie-filled chlorine-gobbler in your buddy’s backyard—usually aren’t conducive to channeling your inner Michael Phelps. That’s where the UNLV Student Recreation and Wellness Center comes in. Along with an array of cardio machines and weights, handball courts and basketball courts, running tracks and classrooms, your $25 monthly membership fee grants you access to a six-lane, 25-yard lap pool, a good-size soaking pool and jumbo-size hot tub. Everything you need to get that workout in, followed by a little lazy chill-out. It’s still a pool, after all. UNLV.edu/SRWC.
