Located on Manchester Road in Glastonbury near the junction of Hurlburt Street on fifteen acres of varied terrain, Minnechaug Swim and Tennis Club has been open since 1971. We're limited to 200 member families for swimming, tennis, picnicking and other summer activities.
The pool is 42 feet wide by 75 feet long with two one-meter springboards (each with adjustable fulcrum) in the diving “L”. A 24-foot diameter “kiddie” pool is also located in the swim area. A permanent pool heater was configured and installed in 2011, to ensure the water temperature stays at a desirable level. The pool was refurbished, sealed and re-plastered in 2012. All pool activities are supervised by qualified, full-time lifeguards, and our Club Director, Sue Husta. Swimming lessons are available, and the swim team competes with other club teams in the area.
There are five Har-Tru tennis courts and one hard surface court. Four of the Har-Tru courts are lighted for nighttime play. The tennis program covers group and individual instruction, men’s and women’s organized play, inter-club matches and end-of-season tournaments. An extensive junior program includes instruction for all ages and abilities, and a tennis team plays a very active schedule. Our Head Tennis Professional coordinates and directs the junior activities, provides lessons and clinics, and is in charge of the tennis court area in general.
The professionally designed clubhouse features a two-story functional activity center with the top floor serving as a meeting and game room. A varied Social Calendar includes activities for all. In addition, there is a large picnic grove, tennis practice area, basketball, and children’s playground area. Members are expected to assist in the spring start-up and fall shutdown activities of the Club and occasionally pool sit.
