  • Fitness Center Orientation and Fitness Assessments

Our professional trainer demonstrates how to operate the various pieces of equipment while introducing members to the benefits of strength training. During the summer and fall months, special orientations are offered for teens. Fitness assessments are available to members to find their "starting point" and track their progress as they work towards their individual fitness goals.

  • Swimming Pool
    • The club's lovely backyard and outdoor pool are available for member use during the summer months, opening on Memorial Day with the annual Pig Roast and closing on Labor Day with the Corn Roast (if weather cooperates, the backyard may extend its season). The pool is open seven days a week and features poolside service, a pool shack offering quick snacks and drinks, beautiful landscaping, and a family-friendly atmosphere. 
  • Tennis Court
    • Our private clay tennis court is a beautiful addition to the University Club's backyard. Tennis lessons for all ages and standards are available by reservation, and equipment (rackets, balls) is available for rental at the pool shack.
