Life Time Fitness, Inc., has two USTA Training centers: Life Time Athletic & Tennis at Peachtree Corners (Norcross, GA) and Life Time Fitness in Lakeville, MN. Impressively, Life Time is the only company that has two USTA Training Centers. McCleary, says,
“There are roughly 25 USTA Training Centers across the country and the USTA recognizes them as the premiere developers of junior tennis players in the nation. The USTA realized that families shouldn’t have to move to get great tennis, so the USTA has partnered with some select facilities across the country to really work together in developing the next round of US champions. We are proud to be an integral part of these goals.”
Across Life Time’s 16 tennis facilities, programs include players from ages four to 94. “We have programs for all ages and skill levels,” says McCleary. “We bring a lot of new players into the game and that’s something we’ve done very well over the last few years. Many new kids and lots of new adults: Now with the addition of Life Time Athletic & Tennis, formerly Racquet Club of the South, we’re really trying to focus on creating a lot of high-end junior players. Hopefully, these are the next juniors we’ll see on Grand Slam Center courts.”
The newly renovated Life Time Athletic & Tennis is being described as a four star tennis destination for junior and professional tennis events. The first professional event is the Australian Open Wild Card Playoffs featuring an exhibition match with the Bryan Brothers. McCleary announces, “We’ve got the Bryan Brothers, the best doubles team in the history of world playing an exhibition match called The Battle of Georgia.” Life Time Tennis & Fitness plans to complete renovations in late spring or early summer of 2013. McCleary commented that one phase of the renovations will be complete prior to the event giving spectators a preview the highly anticipated Life Time Athletic & Tennis at Peachtree Corners.
