Open the Celebration Fitness Centre Basketball Courts Everyday

The basketball courts used to be open everyday. They closed at 5PM on the weekdays, open all day on the weekends. Now they're only open all day Friday, Saturday, Sunday and after 7PM on Wednesday. Lots of time the courts are closed on the days they are supposed to be open, for things like the Quicks Program, so the small amount of time the courts are opened become even smaller. Playing basketball is a good and fun form of cardio, which many people enjoy over running in place on a treadmill or riding a bike that doesn't move. Being right in the gym makes it super convenient for people who want to work out before or after playing. The weekdays the courts are closed, they are never used. I have never seen anyone doing any workouts or anything on the courts on the days they are not open for basketball. After already speaking to employees, the main reason they said it was closed is because of all the noise it makes, but the amount of weight slamming in the same room is much louder and worse than a basketball bouncing. Many people, including myself, pay a lot of money to have a membership to this gym. The court was one of the main reasons I bought mine, and I know I am not the only one. With school ending soon lots of kids will be wanting to play throughout the week during the summer, but won't be able to if they're closed. Opening the courts can be helpful to the gym as well, if the courts are open more, more people will come. People will invite friends to play, and they buy day passes or memberships and the Fitness Centre makes more money.
