During clinics and lessons, beginners learn basic mechanics, court placement, and racket grips, and more advanced players compete in leagues that demand the skill and strategy of playing Risk on trampolines.Fore Court’s 10,000-square foot fitness center invigorates mind and matter ready for a break from prowling the baseline. Each week, 50 group fitness classes whip bodies into shape with Zumba's dance cardio programs, yoga's relaxing postures and poses, and spinning's stationary treks through a music-filled studio. An onsite babysitter frees parents to pursue these activities without having to hire a teenager or a guard baboon to babysit their children.

The Paul Krot Community Darkroom at AS220 is the only black and white photo facility in Rhode Island offering affordable public access to skilled snappers and amateur aperture setters. Classes occur bi-monthly on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 7-10 p.m., and cover all the basics of manual 35mm shooting, such as shutter speeds, f-stop setting, ISO numbers, clutch popping, focal lengths, and minimizing glowy mouth. Class sizes are kept to five or fewer students in order to ensure each developing documenter gets personal attention. Once they've mastered the art of lens and light manipulation, students are ushered into the community darkroom to explore the chemical processes needed to advance their newborn negatives into fully mature prints in sizes ranging from 4" x 5" to 20" x 24".
