Chelmsford Swim & Tennis is a non-profit organization that is owned and operated by its members. Membership is limited to no more than 215 families, ensuring ample access to the facilities for all members. We offer swimming and tennis teams and lessons. There are plenty of activities available to keep your entire family busy all Summer long. Our Pool opens Memorial Day Weekend and closes Labor Day. The Tennis courts are open early Spring to mid Fall.
The Clubhouse contains our changing areas, showers and restroom facilities. Our reception area is the central foyer area leading from the parking lot to the pool. The front desk is always staffed by a greeter. Please check any guests in with them, and feel free to ask them any questions about events or club programs! Here you will also find a calendar with club events and whiteboard with the daily on duty staff. A trophy case is also present, proudly displaying all of our accomplishments.
The swimming pool, home to the 20 time Colonial League champions, is an “L” shaped swimming pool with a 75′ x 35′ competitive swimming area and a one meter diving board. During swim and dive meets, swim and dive practices, and swim lessons, this area is separated into 6 lanes with a starting block at the deep (10′) end of each lane. At all other times, one lane is left for lap swimming while the rest of the area is left open for recreational swimming and diving. The non-competitive area of the pool is always roped-off and is from 2-1/2′ to 4′ deep.
The younger set can enjoy a separate, fenced-in 30′ x 15′ wading pool (about 1′ deep in the middle). A great place for the toddlers to cool off and practice their first swimming strokes (or for Mom and Dad to keep their feet cool!). All children must be accompanied by an adult in the wading pool. There is no lifeguard on duty in this area.
The tennis courts feature four clay tennis courts with lights. The clay courts are swept, rolled and watered daily. The composition courts were resurfaced in 2012 and relined to include USTA Jr. Tennis blended lines to encourage younger players to take up the game of Tennis. The tennis courts are open from mid-April until early November.
Home of the Whiffle ball tournament, a grass field by the side of the pool is available for any number of outdoor activities including whiffle ball, basketball, cornhole and towel time.
Picnic Tables & Barbeque
Picnic tables are available at various spots around the pool some in the grassy areas and some located under the shaded area on the pool deck. Gas grills are available free of charge to members any time the pool is open, so you don’t even have to leave the club to eat!
