Group Sports

CalArts has two tennis courts and a basketball court that are open for use from 6 am-10 pm daily. Individual or team sports and other recreational activities are all sponsored by the Office of Student Experience, formerly known as Student Affairs. The Office provides equipment for sports—including baseball, basketball, tennis and croquet—through the Activity Coordinator.
