Indoor Aquatic Center to host new Battleship Canoe Games
The City of Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department is excited to host the first-ever edition of Battleship Canoe at the Indoor Aquatic Center, located at 166 Cunningham Lane, on February 16.
Similar to the board game, Battleship®, Battleship Canoe will feature teams of four young adults, seated in a canoe, attempting to sink other teams’ canoes using four buckets of water. Teams may also have one shield in their boat to fend off water from entering their boat. Up to five canoes may be in the pool at one time. Teams will battle in heats and the top two teams will advance. Trophies will be awarded to the winners of the High School and College divisions.
The event is open to young adults ages 14-18 in the High School Division and 18 and up for the College Division. Games will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Cost to play is $15 per team. Pre-registration is available at recpro.cityofclarksville.com and is strongly encouraged.
Ditch the workout and join the Zumba fitness party at the Burt-Cobb Community Center, located at 1101 Franklin Street! Classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
Zumba fitness classes combine Latin dance with hip hop dance and other exotic music flavors. Routines feature aerobic interval training with a combination of fast and slow rhythms that tone and sculpt the body. No experience is necessary, just wear athletic shoes and come prepared to burn calories. Classes are $3 per class.
