PIKESVILLE, MD – NOVEMBER 4, 2018 – Shortly after acquiring the DoubleTree hotel, Blue Ocean entered into a strategic partnership with Coppermine Fieldhouse to assume control and operate the hotel’s tennis and fitness facility. Located at 1726 Reisterstown Road, the 50,000 square foot venue features 6 indoor tennis courts, locker rooms, a group fitness studio, and an outdoor pool and health club. This area was the former Baltimore Fitness & Tennis Club that was adjacent to the hotel.
Coppermine President Alex Jacobs states, “We are extremely excited about this opportunity and what it means for the community. In October 2016, we purchased Bare Hills Athletic Club, transforming that location into Baltimore’s premiere racquet center, Coppermine Racquet & Fitness. With our partnership with Blue Ocean, Coppermine has now doubled its indoor tennis & fitness capacity, and is excited to transform this club into an amazing facility for the community. Our coaches, trainers, and staff are what set Coppermine apart as we constantly strive to provide exceptional programming for the entire family. We are dedicated to helping our customers achieve excellence in everything they do.”
This latest acquisition by Blue Ocean will enable the 8th location in Pikesville for Coppermine. With this new location, Coppermine members will now be able to select from a total of 12 indoor tennis courts and 2 health and fitness locations – all conveniently located within the Pikesville area.
A substantial redevelopment program spearheaded by Blue Ocean will bring about an approximate $800,000 of interior renovations for the fitness facility. Coppermine will professionally operate the newly renovated facility under its Coppermine Racquet & Fitness brand.
Blue Ocean President Jonathan Ehrenfeld states, “We are very much looking forward to this new partnership with Coppermine and are confident in their abilities to bring a new level of fitness, health, and recreation options to those within this region.”
Additional details regarding all renovations and improvements planned for the property, as well as new innovative retail and dining experiences will be forthcoming in the near future.
