OUR VISION

To our families in Centre Wellington, ERF is the racquet club that provides a place for the whole family to relax, play and get healthy together.


OUR STORY

For over 35 years Elora Racquets and Fitness has been a staple in the Wellington community.  The club, located between Elora and Fergus on Wellington Road 18, is known mostly as a facility for squash, tennis and racquetball.  However, what most may not know is that it has a fantastic social atmosphere that fosters friendships and gives families a place to stay active and have fun all year long!  Squash and tennis house leagues keep our members active and playing new people throughout the season.  Private lessons and clinics with our many teaching professionals ensure that everyone stays in the game both mentally and physically.  Our Junior Squash program and Summer Sports Camps give children a chance to learn and grow in a fun environment.  We also offer personal training and classes for those who want to improve their fitness.  Over the past 2 years, we have been working hard to upgrade the fitness facilities here at the club.  Brand new equipment sits proudly in our cardio area, and a weight room makeover is around the corner.

Given our location and our wonderful membership community, it's no wonder Elora Racquets and Fitness has been dubbed

"The Gem on the Grand."
