Baltimore Sun - - NATION & WORLD - — Sarah Gantz — Sarah Gantz

Cop­per­mine, which op­er­ates sports fa­cil­i­ties and youth pro­grams in Bal­ti­more, is buy­ing Bare Hills Rac­quet & Fit­ness Club off Falls Road. Terms of the deal, ex­pected to close to­day, were not dis­closed. The club, lo­cated at 1420 Clarkview Road, not far from the orig­i­nal Cop­per­mine lo­ca­tion, will be re­named Cop­per­mine Rac­quet & Fit­ness. With the new club, Cop­per­mine will ex­pand its of­fer­ings to in­clude rac­quet sports and adult fit­ness. Cop­per­mine’s three ex­ist­ing fa­cil­i­ties cater to youth, of­fer­ing team and in­di­vid­ual sports pro­grams, such as gym­nas­tics, dance, soc­cer, base­ball and flag foot­ball. “We have prob­a­bly 5,000 adults with kids com­ing through ev­ery week — now we can market to them,” said Cop­per­mine Pres­i­dent Alex Ja­cobs. Bare Hill of­fers group fit­ness classes, ten­nis, squash and other rac­quet sports. The cen­ter has about 1,400 fit­ness mem­bers and 500 ten­nis mem­bers. Cop­per­mine will add youth rac­quet sport pro­grams to the cen­ter, but plans to keep the club’s adult fit­ness and class of­fer­ings, and that the own­er­ship tran­si­tion should be seam­less for mem­bers, Ja­cobs said. In ad­di­tion to the Cop­per­mine Fieldhouse, nearby off Falls Road, and Cop­per­mine Cross Keys, the com­pany op­er­ates Cop­per­mine Du Burns Arena in Can­ton. Bare Hills has be­tween 30 and 40 full- and part-time em­ploy­ees, and will bring the com­pany’s to­tal head count to about 140 work­ers, Ja­cobs said. on as­sets, re­turn on eq­uity and ef­fi­ciency mea­sures.” Howard Bank’s $1 bil­lion in as­sets, as of Septem­ber 30, rep­re­sents a 10 per­cent in­crease in as­sets from the same time last year. The bank has 15 of­fices stretch­ing from El­li­cott City to An­napo­lis and Elk­ton.
