Located approximately 60 miles south of Cleveland, Ohio, Wooster is constantly rated as one of the most desirable places in the state to live. With a population of 27,000, the community was served for forty years by a local racquet club with four courts. When this facility closed the Wooster tennis community needed a new facility. Richard Seaman, Chairman of the Board at Seaman Corporation and an avid tennis player decided to fill the need with a brand new tennis facility; the Aspen Racquet Club broke ground in August 2017. Situated on six acres, boasting six-courts, a workout room, well-appointed locker rooms and pro shop, this state-of-the-art facility opened its doors in January 2018. It features ReboundAce playing surfaces with foam layers between the asphalt base and the painted top coat to offer less stress on knees and hips during play.
