About our Sports

MAC offers access to a variety of recreational and competitive sports. From tennis, basketball and racquetball courts to outdoor sports facilities, our club and staff cater to all levels of athletes, beginner to experienced, youth to adult.

At Midlothian Athletic Club, we offer a variety of sports you can indulge in for some fitness. Who doesn’t enjoy playing a quick game of basketball or racquetball on their break with their friends? Who doesn’t love exploring a new type of sport such as pickleball to get in shape? The best way to stay healthy and get in shape is picking an activity that you enjoy doing. For example, if you don’t like running, then why would you take the time to run when that’s not what you want to do at all? Why should you make exercising worse than it has to be?


By incorporating different types of fitness exercises into your regimen, you’ll look forward to exercising instead of viewing it as a chore. One way that you can get in some quality fitness time is to spend time playing sports. You’ll be able to smile when you walk into our fitness club and be ready to face whatever type of exercise regimen you’ve chosen that day. What’s even better when you pick something you enjoy doing, you can look forward to winning against your friends on the court. At MAC, we offer a variety of recreational and competitive sports. When you become a member at our athletic club, you’re able to enjoy access to a wide selection of sports.


Some of the sports we offer are tennis, basketball, racquetball courts, martial arts, and pickleball. We also offer outdoor sports facilities that our athletic club and staff ensure can be used to all types of levels of athletic skills. You don’t have to feel self-conscious about being a beginner working out with more experienced people. As an experienced athlete, you don’t have to worry about wondering if we’ll have the proper equipment to ensure you get a good workout in. No matter if you’re a youth or an adult, our sports facilities will cater to your needs.
If you’re interested in participating in our selection of enjoyable sports, then take the time to read a little about each option you have access to, so you can figure out the best route to staying in shape. After all, the best part about working out is finding an activity that you truly enjoy. Whether that is racquetball, basketball or even aquatics, it just matters that you enjoy what you’re doing to stay in shape. For more information on booking a court, take the time to contact our athletic club or become a member today to have access to many fitness options.
