Cincinnati Sports Club was formed in 1990 by a group of local investors who had
a strong need to serve the local community by providing a high quality
experience to family, friends and neighbors.
The original concept was a “sports mall” atmosphere where residents
would benefit from numerous sporting facilities in one location. Original
tenants included the Cincinnati Sports Club, Hyde Park Gymnastics, Soccer 1,
Strike 3 Batting Cages, Winners Café, P-Body’s Exercise Studio, Queen City
Sports Medicine and Koch Sporting Goods.
years later, the Club is making a difference in the lives of others through
their unique combination of health, medical wellness and social programming. “The
Sports Mall model did not function properly due to site limitations. Through
the years, the Club grew into the indoor 110,000 square foot facility and
concentrates on building a unique member experience”, states Mary Frank, Sr.
Manager from Mt. Lookout who has been with the Club for the past 26 years.
every year, we continue to grow to meet the ever changing needs of our members
– all part of our master plan – Club Vision 2025 v2.0. When I reflect on our
timeline of improvements, you can see our commitment to the membership and the
community. Every surface of the Club has been improved, enhanced or modified. And
we are not done yet. We are expecting to open our new adult only outdoor pool
and poolside café/bar this May and will start our plans for an on-site dog sitting
facility”, continues Frank.

member since 1990 says “the club over the years has served as a home away from
home for my family. My family is all still active today and continue to enjoy
our various workout options. No question
the Club is an extension of our family.
Thank You Cincinnati Sports Club for great memories and the continued
usage of all the facilities amenities and improvements.”
