Life Time – The Healthy Way of Life Company (NYSE: LTM) has been named Racquet
Sport’s Industry’s ‘Private Facility of the Year’ as part of the magazine’s
annual ‘Champions of Tennis’ awards. Life Time is America’s largest manager of
indoor tennis facilities, where 16 of its 105 centers have dedicated tennis
courts and programs. The award is recognition of Life Time’s investment in the
game of tennis through its Places, People, and Programs.

In February 2012, Life Time announced it had acquired Atlanta, Georgia-based
Racquet Club of the South (RCS), expanding its tennis operations to 158 courts
and 211 Certified Tennis Professionals nationwide and becoming the largest
national operator of indoor tennis courts with 104. Racquet Club of the South
has since been rebranded as Life Time Athletic at Peachtree Corners and is
undergoing renovation to become a world-class health and fitness facility and
Life Time’s Southeast hub for junior tennis champion training, coaching and
development, and recreational play and instruction.

“We are honored to be recognized as Racquet Sport’s Industry’s ‘Private
Facility of the Year’,” says Layne McCleary, senior manager of National Tennis
Operations at Life Time. “Tennis has been part of a developing vision for Life
Time and will continue to be as we incorporate tennis into new Life Time
destinations and focus on providing social and competitive tennis
opportunities for our members.”

According to the January 2013 issue of Racquet Sports Industry magazine, Life
Time received this award for its full complement of tennis programs and
services, online and in-person tennis communities and continued vision forward
including added budget to improve tennis facilities, programs and services.
