A family-oriented private swim, tennis, and paddle club on historic Belmont Hill
The Belmont Hill Club offers indoor & outdoor pools, indoor & outdoor clay tennis courts, platform (paddle) tennis courts and a fitness center. The Club offers a variety of programs for both adults and children, such as swim & tennis clinics, private swim & tennis lessons, fitness classes, and personal training, along with competitive team tennis and platform leagues. In the summer, the Club also runs a licensed summer day camp.
Located next to Audubon’s Habitat Wildlife Sanctuary in a private and wooded setting, the Club is situated on over 7 acres.
For some time prior to the commencement of The Belmont Hill Club, a small group of concerned parents had discussed on numerous occasions the need for a recreational facility in the Belmont Hill area. They visualized a small club catering to the entire family, which would offer tennis, swimming, bowling and perhaps other sporting activities, as well as a clubhouse. They all felt there was a real need for this type of Club, where children and families could socialize and benefit from varied recreational facilities.
Finally, in early 1966, they learned that the nine-acre parcel of land where the Club now stands would become available. In June of that year the “Organizing Committee,” consisting of eight couples, sent out its first communication to a select list of families. The response was so encouraging and plans went forward rapidly. They broke ground early that fall. Construction was almost completed by May 1967, when they held their first annual meeting. They opened the outdoor pool and met their inital quota of 200 members a month later.
The rest is history. In retrospect, the reason for creating a family type club seems to have been sound, and we hope all the members will agree on the desirability of maintaining a convivial atmosphere for young and old alike – not simply a sporting arena.
The Belmont Hill Club is governed through by-laws and a Board of Directors. The Board members are volunteers elected from and by the club’s members. Membership to the Belmont Hill Club is sponsored. Contact us for more information.
