And it sums up the last week in the life of the Midtown staff as the pool and tennis areas are prepared for the spring and summer seasons.
Here’s what’s been going on at the club lately, and what you can expect when the pools and outdoor courts are open for members on Saturday, May 1st:
Last week, the covers came off of the three pools in preparation for the second season of the club’s luxury outdoor expansion area.
If you’re new to the club and about to enjoy your first warm-weather season, Midtown has three pools to serve the needs of members big and small. They are:
An 18-inch-deep Kiddie Pool, A 2-to-4-feet-deep Intermediate Pool, and A 25-yard, 4-to-6-feet-deep, 6-lane regulation lap pool.
And because Midtown staff is nothing but dedicated to quality control and member service, Aquatics Director Tim Auerhahn took it upon himself to test the waters (not once, but twice!) to ensure that a positive experience is had by all.
If you can’t wait until Saturday to enjoy the outdoors at Midtown, you can relax by the pools in one of the comfortable lounge chairs.
Spring in Rochester isn’t exactly balmy, so the pools are heated until Mother Nature kicks into high gear later in the year. Until Memorial Day, the pool is open for lap swimming Monday through Friday, from 6am – 8am, and then again from 11am – 1pm. On Tuesday and Thursday, the pool has evening hours from 5pm – 7pm. On the weekends in May, the pool is open from 10am – 2pm. Regular hours resume on Monday, May 31st.
The pool area isn’t the only outdoor space being prepped for spring and summer.
The club’s nine outdoor tennis courts are also just about ready for member play beginning Saturday. The clay is down, the surface is rolled, the lines are straight, and once the nets are up, play can commence! Check out the slideshow.
The courts open on May 1st (the same day as the pool), and you can call the front desk now to reserve court time.
To start the season off on a high note, the club is offering the Midtown Mini-Triathlon on Saturday, May 29th from 9am to 1pm. This event is guaranteed fun for all activity levels. Hit the pool for a 20-minute swim, followed by a 20-minute cycle on the pool deck, and end with a 20-minute run. You can sign up yourself or a team, but you better do it quickly, as this event will sell out. Call the front desk to register today.
See you poolside! I’ll be the one chasing a three-year-old and 18-month-old twins.
Pass the margaritas.
How do you plan on using Midtown’s outdoor space this spring and summer?
