Dear Parents and Alumni:
In January 2021 we opened the 200,000 square foot Frank Burkholder Wellness Center (“BWC”). It is a beautiful facility that will benefit every boy at MBA for years to come. The BWC also features a fully functioning café that includes a coffee bar featuring Frothy Monkey products, snacks and lunch. In consultation with our Athletics Director, Mark Tipps, I have decided to open the BWC to a limited number of memberships for current parents and alumni. The facility will be primarily for the use of our students and sports teams, but we would like many of you who are interested to use it as well.
The general memberships will be for one year from the date purchased. The cost structure is as follows:
Alumni and Current Parents -- $600 per year
Young Alumni (ages 18-24) -- $150 per year
We will limit the memberships to 200 people total so as not to overuse the facility or crowd our students and sports teams.
MBA Burkholder Wellness Center, Weight Room Hours
Monday - Friday 5:00 am - 2:30 pm
Saturday 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This membership will entitle members to use the 16,000 square foot fitness center and mezzanine. The fieldhouse, which houses three basketball courts, will be available on a limited basis by reservation. We will not be able to offer any locker room facilities to members. At this time, family memberships are not being offered.
Squash / Golf Center Memberships
Additionally, the BWC also houses three squash courts and a golf center that has three golf bays, equipped with Hit Trax technology, and a putting green. Memberships to use these facilities are separate from the general membership and will be offered at $350 annually for each facility. ONLY Alumni and parents of current students may obtain a membership. Use of the squash courts and golf center will require
advanced reservations. The golf center and squash courts will be open Monday through Friday from 7:00AM - 6:00PM and 8:00AM - 5:00PM on Saturdays and Sundays. We have collaborated with The Golf Club of Tennessee to offer golf lessons at the golf center. These lessons cost $130 for 45 minutes, and can be reserved at https://clublocker.com/clubs/13862/reservations.
Please note, a golf center membership is not required to sign-up for golf lessons. Additional details about these particular memberships can be found in the attached Rules
of the BWC.
We are very excited to announce that the Burkholder squash courts will reopen on Monday June 6th!
To enter the Wellness Center please use the front doors of the Burkholder and ring the doorbell, our on-site security will buzz you in.
Please adhere to these rules while using the squash court:
- Wear eye protection at all times.
- Do not wear dark-soled shoes on the courts.
- Wear appropriate athletic dress.
- Use only proper squash balls and racquets for play.
- If using MBA-provided equipment, please clean all racquets and eyewear after play.
These memberships will be offered on a first come, first served basis.
