Sports & Wellness Center (“Lawrence Sports HUB”) in Lawrence/Methuen
Sports HUB History!
For the first time in 10 years, hundreds of Lawrence Youth Travel players missed out on indoor winter programs because there were no available gyms. These barriers motivated us to take matters into our own hands. In May, we teamed up a handful of partners, including Sport Court New England, and secured 9,000 ft2 of space at the former Polartec facility, now IndusPAD, with growth potential to 70,000 ft2. This historied space in North Lawrence, is an ideal location to develop a year-round center for play, learning, connection, and fitness; our Sport & Wellness Center, or “Lawrence Sports HUB.” We’re also confident it will serve as a place maker for economic development, community pride, and sought-after collaboration that puts the health and wellness of Lawrence youth front and center. We are especially excited to bring other communities and programs into the space to show off the great things the vibrant City of Lawrence has to offer.
