How to make sure you keep that New Year get fit resolution

fitness room westvlietWe all start the year off with New Year resolutions and getting fit and taking up exercise is always somewhere near the top of the list. That might be easier said than done… Determination is key, but so is having a friendly, expert club to put you through your paces.

At the Westvliet, fitness & racket club in The Hague we are ready and waiting to help you achieve your fitness goals. And why not bring the family along too? Exercising together as a family is a great way to start the New Year. So bring the kids, enjoy some sports, spend quality time together and enjoy a freshly-prepared meal in our restaurant afterwards – what better way to make sure those New Year resolutions don’t crumble in the first week. Come and meet us at our open day on January 18.


Many expats and international workers have already found their way to Westvliet, where the staff are happy to advise you in English as well as Dutch. They appreciate our warm, family atmosphere, which makes all the difference when it comes to feeling at home. We’re easy to get to as well, and offer ample, easy parking as well as good public transport links.

Children are central to our way of thinking. We organise many activities to keep the kids busy while parents are working up a sweat on the tennis court. We also run sports camps during the school holidays.

Racquet sports

The squash players have weekly ‘club’ evenings on Thursdays from 20.30 to closing time. People from all over the region can walk in and join in a game with our host Philippe or other squash players. Beginners, intermediate and advanced players are all welcome. The atmosphere is informal and you will soon feel at ease amongst the friendly squash players. There are ladder competitions and tournaments with other clubs in the region.
