March 13, 2019

Goose Creek Racquet and Health Club, a private tennis club with 480 active members, has retained Equity Partners HG to seek strategic investors, partners or a buyer. Built in 2014, the Club is located less than five miles from the University of Mississippi and borders a 550 home development.

Goose Creek Racquet and Health Club is approximately 9.82 acres in size and includes seven clay tennis courts, three new pickleball courts, and a full-size Olympic style swimming pool and a baby pool. The 8,721 square foot clubhouse features numerous lounging decks and outdoor social areas, including dining areas with both inside and outside seating. The interior layout of the clubhouse includes a vaulted lobby area, a child care room, aerobics room, spin room, a vaulted gym area, fitness office, pro shop and pro shop office, massage room, men’s and women’s locker rooms, a kitchen, and a restaurant/bar area.

The Club’s staff includes a seasoned tennis professional who oversees all the racket programs and a fitness trainer who oversees the state-of-the-art fitness center. Spin, piYo, yoga, pilates, bootcamp and other programs are available to members. The current General Manager/Owner has agreed to stay on for a transitional period.

Fred Cross, a managing director at Equity Partners HG, says that “This is an excellent opportunity to acquire an established athletic/tennis club with a loyal membership base and dedicated and professional staff. The tennis courts are some of the best in the country and the design of the clubhouse, pool and courts provide a social environment that can’t be beat”.
