Renovations Coming to acac Albemarle Square Locker Rooms

acac is proudly celebrating our 20th anniversary at our Albemarle Square location. Since opening in 1998, we have reinvested well over $5 million in facility and equipment upgrades.
We are excited to announce our next reinvestment project: a complete renovation of the men’s and women’s locker rooms, beginning late September 2018! 

We recognize that there will be some inconveniences to our members during this time. We appreciate your patience while we make this much needed upgrade. We can’t wait to show you the new space this winter!
