Life Time Fitness Named Racquet Sport's Industry's Private Facility Of The Year

Life Time – The Healthy Way of Life Company (NYSE: LTM) has been named Racquet Sport’s Industry’s ‘Private Facility of the Year’ as part of the magazine’s annual ‘Champions of Tennis’ awards. Life Time is America’s largest manager of indoor tennis facilities, where 16 of its 105 centers have dedicated tennis courts and programs. The award is recognition of Life Time’s investment in the game of tennis through its Places, People, and Programs.

In February 2012, Life Time announced it had acquired Atlanta, Georgia-based Racquet Club of the South (RCS), expanding its tennis operations to 158 courts and 211 Certified Tennis Professionals nationwide and becoming the largest national operator of indoor tennis courts with 104. Racquet Club of the South has since been rebranded as Life Time Athletic at Peachtree Corners and is undergoing renovation to become a world-class health and fitness facility and Life Time’s Southeast hub for junior tennis champion training, coaching and development, and recreational play and instruction.

“We are honored to be recognized as Racquet Sport’s Industry’s ‘Private Facility of the Year’,” says Layne McCleary, senior manager of National Tennis Operations at Life Time. “Tennis has been part of a developing vision for Life Time and will continue to be as we incorporate tennis into new Life Time destinations and focus on providing social and competitive tennis opportunities for our members.”

According to the January 2013 issue of Racquet Sports Industry magazine, Life Time received this award for its full complement of tennis programs and services, online and in-person tennis communities and continued vision forward including added budget to improve tennis facilities, programs and services.
