Welcome to Opening Day!

Members -

On behalf of the Hamlet Swim and Tennis Club Board of Directors, I would like to welcome you to our annual Club opening day.  Although this is opening day for the Pool, and general Clubhouse activities, the Tennis organization with teams, clinics, and practices are a year-round organization and well into a winning season!

As we begin our Summer season, a few updates are in order:

-A huge “Thank You” to Bill Hauda, Dive Team Rep, who not only supports our incredibly talented team yet has stepped up to completely revamp the HSC website.  I encourage you to become familiar with the new site as all events, schedules, Club closings, weather updates and messaging to our Members will be carried out via the website to avoid constant emailing to the Members.  The current website is: www.hamletpool.org.  Bill has also incorporated the ability for us send out updates via Twitter, Instagram and text messaging. 

-We have heard the cry to remove the antiquated vending machines and offer a more healthy snack environment.  The current machines will be moved no later than Tuesday, May 29th.  They will be replaced with two (2) state of the art drink only machines offering water and soda with wireless inventory operations.  We will be implementing a snack bar in our kitchen, staffed by HS students, with a set menu and pricing to provide healthy snacks with some “sugar”.  After all, we are a vacation spot and Carrots are great but everyone needs a Gummy Bear once in a while!  The snack bar will include two (2) frozen drink options for the kids. Please be patient as we ramp up with the new machines and operational snack bar as our target date for full implementation is June 7th

-Lastly, please remember there our Team registration for Tennis, Dive and Swim will be held on May 26th from 10:00 – 12:00 at the Clubhouse. The Team Reps, including our fabulous HSC Tennis Pro’s will be in attendance to assist in anyway.  As a note on our Tennis program, Registrations for the Juniors Tennis Team are open now at https://hamletgreenfeet.swimtopia.com.  The fee for the season is $90 plus you can purchase an optional shirt from the online store.  The t-shirt link will be provided at sign up.  Our season starts with the first practice on June 21, and registration for the tennis team closes on Monday, May 29 so don't delay!

Looking forward to seeing all of you around the Club.

Valerie

President, Hamlet Swim & Tennis Club
