Clinical counselor Cindy Becknell was worried that kids weren't socializing enough anymore. She wondered how to encourage them to interact, short of simply telling them to or setting up blind playdates. Then she realized that there was already a designated social space for kids: the playground. There weren't as many "old fashioned" playgrounds anymore, much less ones that were concerned with child safety, but Cindy was undeterred. She founded her own playground and called it KidZoo.
KidZoo kids zoom down slides, swing atop tires, and ascend ladders made from rope or wood, just like those in a classic playground. They can also skip across artificial turf to the simulated blacktop, where staff members lead throwback games such as whiffle ball, dodge ball, and keep away. This playground, though, is all indoors, impervious to the whims of the weather and its tendency to tie everyone's shoelaces together.
The Five Seasons Family Sports Club houses tennis courts, a dining area, fitness facilities, swimming pools, and a full-service spa under one roof. Within air-conditioned indoor courts or on outdoor hard or clay courts, racquet slingers compete in friendly bouts to sharpen swings, refine backhands, and showcase grunting abilities. Members can also break a sweat in exercise areas speckled with modern cardio equipment and weights or cool off in a pool with diving wells and wading areas. Before meeting others for a postgame beverage at the lively café, clients can wander to the spa for a relaxing massage or partake in a sports workshop to gain a firm grasp on game mechanics.
Though it celebrates athleticism of all stripes, Sports of All Sorts Batting Cages specializes in training amateurs in America's pastime. Along with batting cages equipped for baseball and slow- or fast-pitch softball, the facility improves each player's game with a hitting and pitching tunnel and pitching mounds with L-screens. Seasoned players and area college coaches demonstrate batting skills at off-season baseball camps, which can be customized for groups of six or more.
The facility's multipurpose court hosts a range of activities such as basketball scrimmages, cheerleading practice, and royal curling tournaments while the king's ice rink gets remodeled. After practice, the arcade hosts rounds of air hockey, billiards, or video games, and Sports of All Sorts' bounce house and three-tiered indoor soft playground hosts the hopping of younger visitors.
The O'Connor Sports Center has just about everything you need to get in shape and stay that way. The facility, which is owned and operated by Xavier University, treats members to a host of amenities including a 25-meter indoor lap pool, a three-court gymnasium, and two racquetball courts. For those looking to hit the treadmill or lift some weights, the center offers a Nautilus cardio room complete with ellipticals, stationary bikes, and a rowing machine, as well as a Hammer strength room filled with free weights, squat machines, and more. Instructor-led group classes are also available for students who want to improve their yoga and Pilates skills. As additional perks, guests can secure their possessions in the locker room before every workout.
At Western Sports Mall in Cincinnati, there is an open spot on the tennis courts waiting just for you.
