Athletic Club has purchased Lake Country Racquet & Athletic Club.
The WAC operates locations in Brookfield, Menomonee Falls, West
Allis, Greenfield, Wauwatosa and Milwaukee.
This week, in an email to members, the WAC announced the
acquisition. For the time being, WAC and LCRAC members will not have
immediate access to the other club, the WAC said.

Hartland. LCRAC was first opened as a tennis and racquetball
facility, but has since evolved into a full-service fitness
The WAC was co-founded about the same time, in 1976, by a few
Milwaukee businessmen. The first location was in West Allis and
included an 8-court racquetball and social club called “The
Racquetball Club.” Members enjoyed cocktail and tournament parties
while watching national racquetball tours and U.S. champions visited
It also has developed into a full-service fitness facility with a
pool and other amenities and several locations.
