Stop in the Community Center any time during our normal hours to take a tour and see what the Byron Township Community Center has to offer! We have weight machines, cardio machines, a walking track, and so much more! Signing up is easy, just fill out the membership form at the front desk when you arrive or print one off of our website.
Membership grants access to the Community Center’s gymnasium and the fitness center on our second floor. We have stairs as well as an elevator, for easier access.
Membership to the fitness center does not include the cost of classes. Members receive a 5% discount on many classes. (You don’t have to be a member, however, just to take our classes.)
Identification Required: Proof of identification is required to receive the Byron Township resident discounted pricing. ID is also required to prove age, as we require a person to be 18 years or older to sign the membership form. Anyone 17 or younger must have a parent or guardian sign the membership form on their behalf. Accepted forms of ID are:
• Photo ID: Driver’s license or state ID.

Machine usage is not permitted at any time for children under the age of 13.

During our open gym times, it is first come, first served. We have reserved some times for activities such as classes, pickle ball, and such. So below you will find our current schedule for our gymnasium.
To the right, is a map of our facility so that you can better see what it is we refer to as north and south gyms. We do our best to only schedule one side of the gym, if possible. Certain events, however, such as volleyball, do require the full gymnasium.
Besides classes or leagues, any use of our gymnasium requires a membership or day pass. This is the same membership as is used for the upstairs fitness area. So, for example, if you are a member and you wish to join in on our pickle ball days, it is included in your membership and there are no extra costs involved.
The Byron Township Community Center has Pickle ball! We have organized times a few days a week to allow for this. See the schedule below, and please note that this is the most accurate schedule. Other websites in the area may share our information, but if there are changes, they are not always reflected.
WHAT IS PICKLE BALL?
A popular worldwide game, Pickle ball is a racket sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. It can be played indoors and out, with 2-4 players, on a badminton-sized court with a slightly modified tennis net. A game for everyone, the USAPA currently estimates there are now over 100,000 players actively playing Pickle ball.
HOW DO I PLAY?
We welcome both new and experienced players to the game. We have courts for leisurely play, as well competitive play. New players are welcomed and taught the sport by more experienced players as they participate.
WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PICKLE BALL IN BYRON CENTER?
The times on the calendar are when we expect numerous players to participate. Drop-in play is available during open gym times on a first come, first served basis.
Byron Center has both indoor and outdoor courts. Indoor courts are available all year long, while the outdoor courts may be used during the summer months only.
The outdoor courts are at the tennis courts located at Bicentennial Park (8085 Byron Center Avenue) and Cutler Park (6701 Cutler Park Drive). Tennis nets are set up, but players must supply their own paddles and Pickle balls. First come, first served.
The indoor courts are located inside the Byron Township Community Center (2120 76th Street). The Rec Center provides and sets up Pickle ball nets and has five lined courts. The Rec center also has a supply of Pickle balls as well as some paddles for use by participants.
Outdoor courts are free to use as they are available. The indoor courts are available as the schedule dictates, and when not in use by others during open gym times. For indoor play, a membership to the Rec Center or the purchase of a day pass is required to play.
All first-time players are required to fill out a membership form/waiver at the front desk, prior to participating.
