I could not believe my ears today when I called the YMHA in Snowdon about a possible membership for racquetball. I was expecting the usual frightening news: $200 initiation fee, $120 a month, $10 per day for guest.
But they just started their summer package deal: $159 for three months, with access to all facilities (racquetball, weights, aerobics, cardio etc.) in their newly renovated space.
That’s $1.75 a day, people!
Philip (he’s the membership guy) will be happy to give you a tour any time. I’m heading down there tomorrow, cash clutched in fist. Already bought gloves, balls and eyeguards on eBay, so, little blue ball, here I come!
If you do go because you saw this post, mention me to Philip, who’ll tell me, and we’ll all go out to dinner on me after I whup your ass on the court.
See you there!
