Butte-Silver Bow Parks & Recreation Department is now accepting rosters for a women’s volleyball league and a co-ed competitive volleyball league.

The county is also offering open play for pickleball. All play will be held at the Butte Civic Center Annex, and admission will be limited to only the players because of the pandemic.

The indoor open play for pickleball will begin Sept. 27 and will run through Jan. 11. The Annex will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to noon and Tuesday and Thursdays from 6:30-9 p.m.
