Social Events Information 2018

We look forward to another fun filled season at the South Windsor Swim & Tennis Club in 2018! We are planning to have a full schedule of social events over the summer. In order for this to be possible, SWSTC requires the help of all members.

Social events are a fun, easy way to earn your work hours! 2 - 4 hours depending on the event you host, some bigger events will earn between 6 - 8 hours. Please note, you can do an event with a friend and SPLIT the allotted work hours. Hosting a holiday party (Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day) earns all 8 work hours. To host an event listed here or if you have an idea for a new event, please email socialSWSTC@gmail.com

Once someone volunteers for an event, it will be added to the social calendar.

Private Parties

All parties require prior approval. Please check the social calendar to view current party reservations. Some weekend dates, such as when we have swim/dive meets, shows, or holiday parties, may not be available for private parties.

The small and large pavilions may be reserved in 4 hour blocks, from 12 - 4 PM, or 4 - 8 PM (9 PM in July). Please note that your set-up & clean-up time is included in this time frame. If there is no one booked before or after your party, you are welcome to stay and enjoy the use of the pavilion. However, if there is another party booked that day, we ask that you respectfully wait until or vacate the pavilion at the appropriate time.  If it is a smaller party, you may be asked if you would be willing to share the large pavilion with another, smaller party.

If you are interested in booking a party, please email socialSWSTC@gmail.com with the following information:

  • 1.    Your name
  • 2.    Preferred date & time frame (12 - 4 PM, or 4 - 8 PM)
  • 3.    Large or small pavilion
  • 4.    Estimated number of guests, specifying how many children & adults. If you are unsure, please provide your best guess. This information is necessary to determine staffing of the club during your party.

You are responsible for submitting a completed reservation form & sign-in sheet (provided to you prior to the party) along with a $5 per non-member guest fee. We ask that you remind all guests to refrain from using perfumes and body scents to the club for the safety of all of our members.
