Why Small Businesses Matter: Weston Racquet Club


Why Small Businesses Matter

Shop small, do big things for your community

Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!

You're IT Weston Racquet Club!

Three questions with Bridget Holmes, Manager at Weston Racquet Club.

Why did you start your business?

The Weston Racquet Club was built in 1974 to accommodate locals who were looking for a place to play tennis during the winter months. Ivan Lendl purchased the club in 1991 and is still the owner today. The club is now open year-round and features six well-maintained indoor Har-Tru courts, three outdoor Har-Tru courts, and three outdoor hard courts.

What is your best-selling product/service?

Players love our instruction-based clinics and lessons. We prioritize investing in a qualified and professional teaching staff so demand is high for the instruction they provide, whether in a group or private setting. Many young parents are interested in their children learning a lifelong sport so our program for juniors has probably been growing the fastest.

Have you reimagined your small business?

Tennis is a fairly established business. With that said, we are continually evolving in terms of programming and professional development for our teaching staff so we can offer our players an experience that also evolves and improves. Customer service plays a big role in any service business and we are proud of our knowledgeable, friendly, and accessible staff which ensures that players feel good about their experience at the club.
