Opening of Pool Announcement

At last the pool is set to reopen! It will officially reopen tomorrow, June 5. There will be limitations as the county health department is still requiring social distancing. Consequently, we cannot open up for open free swim. Instead, we are opening up with a swim lane reservation system. The pool will be divided into 5 usable lanes. Lanes 1+2 (closest to the clubhouse) will be a double wide lane for family swim. Lanes 3, 4, 5, and 6 will be for lap swimmers. Reservations are made online at the Fairbrae Swim Lane Reservation System. This will be very similar to the tennis court reservation system.

We have 13 pool rules around this new system, which are included below and will be on our website. A lot of time and effort went into these new rules and guidelines to make them easy to understand yet allow us to reopen the pool. Please do your very best to cooperate so we can continue to keep the pool open. We’ve also created an FAQ with details on the hows and the whys. Feedback and comments on swim (or anything else) are always welcome at Happy swimming everyone!
