Equipment Checkout Service

Operating hand-in-hand with our Open Recreation Program is the Equipment Checkout Service. Patrons may check out a variety of recreational equipment to use during Open Recreation times. Most equipment, including basketball, volleyball, wallyball, softball, soccer, and flag football equipment, may be checked out at no charge. Racquetball, squash, tennis, badminton, table tennis racquets, and jerseys for Intramurals are available for rent at $1 each per day. (Please note that SUNY Cortland students check out racquetball racquets free of charge.) Complete outdoor volleyball sets are also available for rent at $10 per day. Racquetballs may be purchased for $2 each or $4 per can, tennis balls for $3.50 per can, squash balls for $3 each, and table tennis balls/shuttlecocks for $1 each.
