The group lesson was an absolute blast! The instructors were patient and encouraging, making it easy for beginners like me to pick up some new moves. The atmosphere was lively, the music was great, and I left feeling like I had improved my skating skills while having a ton of fun. Can't wait to join another session!

The event was a success! Ended the long bike ride really tired and staff were very friendly to offer waters and help out any way they could. They were able to mold the space to our needs pretty easily. Overall positive experience
Jordan H - WABA 50 States Bike Ride
I'd never played Pickleball before so I was kind of nervous when my friend invited me but the staff actually came in and gave us a few pointers. I had a lot of fun. The cabanas were really nice and were perfect for those waiting to play to hang around. Staff was super friendly and being able to order some booze is a big plus! Kraken Bryant St is Josh approved!

Rolling back the years roller skating! Had so much fun. Brought back some good memories from skating as a kid. I love that I now have a spot in the District where I can come skate.
