Life Time (NYSE: LTH), the country’s largest owner and operator of pickleball courts across its network of luxury athletic clubs, is bringing its pickleball prowess to New York City with the announced addition of indoor courts to Life Time Sky, located at The Moinian Group’s high-end residences in Hell’s Kitchen. Additionally, space will be dedicated to the Company’s widely popular Alpha Training program. Construction has started with an anticipated opening by early Feb. 2023.
The street-level location will be an entirely new space for Life Time members to experience with two pickleball courts designed for open court time, classes, instruction, tournaments, training and social events, while the dedicated Alpha space will feature multiple squat racks, kettlebells, weights, equipment and cardio machines for metabolic and strength conditioning. Both programs will be led by New York’s top certified instructors, coaches and trainers.
Life Time Sky was the first Life Time destination to open in New York City and is home to more than more than 70,000 square feet of luxury athletic club amenities with studios for barre, cycle, HIIT, Pilates and Yoga classes, large fitness floor for strength and cardio workouts, regulation-size basketball court, indoor lap pool, rooftop beach club and Turkish Hammam suite. The club is open to members with one day and monthly memberships. Life Time also operates within The Moinian Group’s Ocean residence at 1 West Street along with three other destinations across the city with a new club set to open in Midtown in early 2023..
“I could not be more excited to bring pickleball to our Sky location, which is renowned for the epic games on our basketball court, incredible boutique-style classes and rooftop beach club experience. Adding pickleball and dedicated Alpha training space elevates our Life Time offerings for members as we continue expanding our footprint throughout the city,” said Bahram Akradi, Life Time’s Founder, Chairman and CEO.
Since last Summer, Life Time has built indoor and outdoor pickleball courts at a rate of five new permanent courts each week, many with viewing areas, stadium seating, social lounges, and more. With the addition of the two courts at Sky, Life Time brings the total number of permanent pickleball court locations throughout North America to more than 400, with the goal of exceeding 600 by the end of 2023.
In addition to Sky, Life Time will have permanent pickleball courts at seven Tri-State area locations including four in New York: Life Time Garden City, Life Time Syosset and Life Time Westchester and three in New Jersey: Life Time Berkeley Heights, Life Time Florham Park and Life Time Princeton. Life Time also has relationships with Major League Pickleball (MLP), Professional Pickleball Association (PPA) and has recently adopted the DUPR system for player ratings.
