The Town of North Haven is pleased to announce that the beloved premier sports facility in our community, North Haven Health and Racquet (NHHR), will resume operations on Sunday, Sept. 13, just in time for the start of the fall tennis season.
First Selectman Michael Freda worked in partnership with current owners of the NHHR facility, the Tagliatela family, to develop a solution that will keep the club’s facilities and services accessible to the residents of North Haven and all club members and clients.
A new, capable management team with years of experience in tennis club operations called “Tennis for All” will assume the management of the club. Anna Mobarak, who currently manages Tennis Central in Woodbridge will lead that team, supported by tennis pros from Tennis Central and her husband Mushfiq Mobarak, Professor of Economics and Management at Yale.
This new management team will work closely with the Town of North Haven, including the North Haven school system, to make the club’s facilities more accessible to all North Haven residents, designing new sports and health programs for our school children and for the elderly. They will also introduce talent identification and youth development programs to nurture promising athletes in our community. All of this is made possible by the generosity of the Tagliatela family, and a unique public-private partnership with a mission to build healthier, inclusive communities in North Haven using sports.
The new management will communicate with NHHR members about specifics of the reopening plans, and the procedures for booking courts. They are currently devising a system for facility access that is consistent with the State of Connecticut’s guidelines for reopening business in a phased manner to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Please visit nhhr.com/faq for more information about re-opening plans, and to be placed on an email list through which the club will communicate with interested parties. You can also connect to the club on Facebook to stay abreast of latest developments.
