Between the in-person Fall and Spring semesters, the College’s six outdoor recreational tennis courts along Southworth Street, the paddle tennis court, and the track at Weston Field will be open for individuals to use at their own risk. We hope this gives members of the campus and Williams College affiliates an opportunity for recreation and exercise. In addition to the standard rules governing the use of these facilities, everyone will be expected to practice social distancing, wear a facial covering at all times and follow all public health protocols as outlined in the Massachusetts State Guidelines.
The College’s practice fields will be closed to contact sport activities. While the State has permitted reopening of some facilities to adult sports and supervised youth programming, the College has decided at this time out of an abundance of caution to limit the use of outdoor grass and turf fields to individual recreation that can be done while maintaining distance from others and without sharing of any equipment.
INDOOR FACILITIES (click here to reserve your spot)
For Williams students approved to stay on campus between semesters, please check out the indoor recreational opportunities available to you. Due to CDC, Massachusetts, and Williams Guidelines, facilities need to be reserved weekly. You MUST have a reservation or you will not be permitted to use the facilities.
Please pay special attention to the instructions on how these facilities will operate as they are limited in order to comply with Covid specific requirements. There will be an on-site facility monitor to support the operation of these spaces and you must adhere to the rules and their instruction.
Some indoor spaces will remain closed, but we are continuing to work toward the goal of reopening such spaces as the fitness center and basketball courts and will share more information when it is available. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding through this time.
For a great many of us, recreation is an important aspect of daily life, especially in the current environment. Protecting the health and wellbeing of the people around you is an equally important thing to do. Please enjoy the recreational opportunities, while helping each other by using these facilities with care and caution. Be safe out there.
