New sports facility coming to Buda

By Megan Wehring

BUDA — An indoor and outdoor tennis, pickleball, fitness and community facility is set to open in Buda next fall.

RacFit Properties LLC purchased a six-acre parcel of land located at 1390 Robert S. Light Blvd. Construction is slated to begin this fall and will take approximately nine to 12 months to complete.

The 36,000 square foot indoor facility will house four tennis and pickleball courts, fitness rooms, active daycare, a café lounge and ping-pong. Outdoor facilities will include eight pickleball courts, four tennis courts, two sand volleyball courts, and food trucks. All ages will be welcomed at the facility.

“We are incredibly excited to bring RacFit to the communities of Buda, Kyle and South Austin,” said general partner Grant Chambers. “The growth of central Texas has created a need for more tennis, pickleball and fitness-oriented options for our communities. We believe this type of offering is critical to creating happier healthier individuals, families and communities. ”

RacFit will be open to the public, and will also offer a limited number of memberships.
