Folks at Westboro Tennis & Swim Club are serious about promoting health and wellness and provide instruction in tennis, fitness and aquatics, while maintaining a safe recreational environment in a superior facility. As the slogan says, “There is truly something for the whole family, all year round.”

“We’ve been the best resource for tennis, swim, and fitness for the past 50 years, serving hundreds of thousands of kids and adults in MetroWest,” stated owner Justin Lundberg.

The Westboro Club is like home to Lundberg — from his teenage years teaching tennis and lifeguarding to managing a nearby tennis and swim club over summers while attending college.

He originally purchased the club in 2005. From then until 2018, the club experienced tremendous growth, expanding its footprint and services. Lundberg sold the location in 2018 to Town Sports International, under its Boston Sports Clubs (BSC) brand, with the hope that BSC would continue to invest in and expand the operation.

However, Town Sports filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in September 2020. Lundberg, along with former owner Steve Ferris and longtime head pro Mike Zatsiorsky, stepped in to keep the facility open, repurchasing the club on Oct. 1.

Over the past several weeks, new ownership has made many improvements, including several COVID-related safety measures.

“We are leading the way in COVID safety for our membership and staff,” Lundberg said. “We keep abreast of state-issued guidelines and are going above and beyond to make all areas safe. By partnering with leading-edge technology companies like ThinkLite Air, we have already installed over $100,000 worth of air, surface cleaning and filtering systems. Our website is constantly updated with a running blog explaining the timing of regulations and how we are dealing with them.”

Additionally, dividers between cardio equipment, safe distance group exercise classes, cleaning stations, and mask-wearing are standard operating procedures.

Memberships are available for individuals, couples, families, juniors and students. Each person is initially evaluated to best determine the appropriate entry level of their desired sport.

The club offers youth and adult aquatic lessons; tennis lessons, leagues and clinics; and personal training and fitness classes such as BodyCombat, BodyPump and strength conditioning as well as cycling, yoga and Pilates. The newest offering: pickleball.

The Kids Club, located in its own building, provides 3,500 square feet of multipurpose space. On-site babysitting is available at no charge for family members.

For younger folk, there is a climbing cave, tree house, arts and crafts and computerized, interactive games. Older kids enjoy the latest gaming systems and air hockey tables. Tennis and sports camps are available for youth ages 4-12 during school vacations.

“We realize not everyone is ready to come back to a health club yet,” Lundberg said. “Our goal is to be fully ready and ramp up with programs to help people get back in shape physically and mentally as they are ready to resume normal activity.”

The Westboro Tennis & Swim Club is conveniently located at 35 Chauncy St. in Westboro, right off Route 9. Discover more at thewestboroclub.com or call 508-366-1222 to schedule a tour.
