The Wellesley Sports Center, the latest project being built by the Edge Sports Group, is looking at an opening sometime in May.
This commercial facility conveniently located at 900 Worcester Street in Wellesley, MA, directly on Route 9, will offer two NHL regulation ice surfaces (one fully sled hockey compatible), an indoor synthetic turf field with an elevated walking track, a competition swimming pool, a warm-up pool, sports rehabilitation, strength training, fitness/dance studio and an Inspirica Tutoring Center.
“Wellesley has been waiting for a facility like this for a long time,” said Chris Collins of ESG Associates. “It is very exciting to see it finally come to fruition. With such an athletic-based and health conscious community, it was essential that a multi-purpose facility was built in this area to accommodate all of the athletic teams for the Town of Wellesley and surrounding communities.”
A state-of-the-art 102,000 square feet facility, which has been in the works for a while, is about to come to life. The Wellesley Sports Center is set to start making ice starting on May 1 and hopes to open up sometime in mid May.
Wellesley Sports Center is not only an athletic facility, but will offer academic tutoring and physical therapy as well and can benefit the entire community, not just athletes.
“The Wellesley Sports Center is perfect for the Town of Wellesley and the Metro-west area because it is much more than just two hockey rinks,” said Collins. “The facility is a total ecosystem centered around athletics and academics, which has never been done in a facility to this extent before. By offering first in-class tutoring services as well as strength and conditioning, physical therapy and fitness studios for all-ages, the facility not only solves the obvious need for ice, turf and pool time, but also offers a “one-stop-shop” approach that is going to benefit our entire community.”
Not only will this facility be home to the Wellesley High School boys and girls varsity ice hockey teams, but a multitude of others. The Wellesley Sports Center will also be home to Dana Hall School, Driscoll Skating and Skills, Power Play Adult Hockey League, Learn to Skate and Learn to Play as well as many others to be announced soon. This facility also plans to host summer tournaments and showcases.
The Town of Wellesley will get preferred ice times for their High School and youth programs along with preferred time in the competition pool. And, the facility will have recreational public skating and open pool times throughout the week and weekends once open.
This is something the Town of Wellesley has wanted to happen for a long time and Collins is excited to see it all come together.
