Owned and managed by the City of Westbrook and its Community Services Department.

Located in the Cornelia Warren Recreational Wing, just beyond the Gym, the Westbrook Community Center's multi-use facility provides baseball and softball teams of Westbrook and surrounding communities the opportunity to hit, pitch, and train at an extremely affordable price.

"The Hit Pit" also offers private hitting lessons with SWING LIKE A PRO WITH KEN JOYCE.  Joyce is a long-time professional hitting instructor who has worked in the Miami Marlins, Toronto Blue Jays, and San Francisco Giants organization, as well as with hitters like Bryce Harper, Buster Posey, and Mike Trout. 

The facility features two hitting tunnels, two L-screens, two soft-toss nets, and Tanner Tees.  It's also adjacent to a full-size gymnasium, indoor pool, and group fitness studio (all of which can be rented for an additional fee).
