Adult Leagues and Evening Classes  

Who said summer activities were just for kids? The Cartersville Parks and Rec department offers many activities for adults who want to have some fun. Indoor walking, pickleball, disc golf, and tennis are great options for people who want to stay active with low-medium impact play. Swim lessons are another choice for those who want a break from the summer heat. And for those who want to learn a new skill and let loose, ballroom dance classes (waltz, foxtrot, rumba, swing, and cha cha– and more), as well as Latin dance classes (salsa, merengue, bachata, and cumbia), are offered at the Goodyear Clubhouse in Cartersville.
