Where to Practice

I just started juggling rings and clubs and find it much harder to
practice these in my room or house because of space or low ceilings. And
outside is usually too hot (Florida) or too windy for rings. In a lot of
the juggling videos I've seen, people practice in gyms or raquetball
courts. I was wondering if anybody had advice on how to find a place like
this to practice or any other suggestions of places to practice.

I'm continually frustrated by the low ceilings in my house, and I do not
like practicing outside (wind, usually). I've found that my garage is a
rather convenient place, with a rather tall ceiling and (when I pull the
car out) a fair amount of open floor space.

Unfortunately, there's no heat or a/c there, so it only works out well in
the spring and fall.

I used to have a gym membership and I would just juggle on the
basketball court when there weren't classes/games going on. Sometimes
I was able to use the group exercise rooms when classes weren't going
on.

When I was in school there was nearly always a place with high
ceilings -- racquetball courts, basketball courts, volleyball courts,
cafeterias, etc.

If you aren't in school or a gym member, maybe there's a community
center kind of place that would allow you to juggle for free/cheap. We
have one locally where you can work out/play basketball/whatever for
(I think) $2/day.

Maybe a church/school that you're affiliated with would allow you to
use their gym or auditorium for juggling.

Malls usually have high ceilings and sometimes the security guards are
pretty slow. If you go this route, please make a video.

Ah, you have no idea how lucky you are! I lived in florida for 13 years,
then moved to indiana. It may be hot in florida, but you *can* juggle
outside all winter long. Here, it gets almost as hot (though not for as
long), but then gets so cold you dread going outside... for months...
*sinks into drepression*

I'm done "ranting" now. Look about for any kind of gym or the like and ask
is you can go in. Maybe join the Y (many have pools and basket ball courts
and various other things to use in addition to juggling space). Only
problem there is it is a little expensive if you don't go frequently.

Good luck.
