Informal Recreation is time allotted for participation in an unstructured recreation activity; be it basketball, badminton, cardio machines, volleyball, racquetball, squash, tennis, table tennis, weight lifting, swimming, etc. You can participate alone or with a group of people who happen to be playing your chosen sport.   Check the Activities page for specific times/activities.

Students or Recreation Card holders may participate in Informal Recreation at no charge. Faculty, Staff and Community may purchase a Recreation Card. UCSD students DO need to purchase a rec card for the summer months.

Recreation Cards may only be purchased at the RIMAC Sales Desk.
