Munster Recreation

Recreation

Munster is a great town for one to participate in a sporting activity. We are equipped with two regulation soccer fields, 4 mini soccer fields,  two tennis courts, 2 baseball fields, a summer/winter hockey rink, a beach volleyball court and even dart boards in the local restaurant.

Whether you are involved in playing team sports such as soccer, lobb ball, softball, hockey, curling, or like participating in individual sports,  like skiing, snowboarding,  snowmobiling, golf,  tennis, judo, swimming, or sports that combine a little of both such as volleyball, darts & bowling you should be able to find information regarding these sports here.
