Thank you for your interest in Sun Valley Swim & Tennis Club. We are a members-only facility with a wait list for membership. For those joining the wait list in 2020 we anticipate the wait will be about 2 years*. To honor our roots as a neighborhood pool, we offer an expedited process (~1 year) for families residing in the neighborhood. Neighborhood families must be on the list by November 1 to be eligible for an invitation the following season. Additionally, deeded properties that are part of the Sun Valley Association may join right away (no wait) and have separate membership options and fees. Contact us to inquire about your neighborhood or Sun Valley Association status.
*Note: Due to uncertainty regarding pandemic conditions and what may be required for safe operation in 2021, we may need to limit /reduce the overall size of our membership next year. This could significantly impact how many new families we are able to welcome from the wait list and in turn extend wait times beyond our original 2 year projection. It's too early to know. We are doing our best to monitor the situation and we will update this page as we know more. Typically we extend the first round of invitations to wait list families in November, however this year we will likely delay the process until January when we have more information about our overall capacity and the renewal decisions of our current members. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
We remain committed to fairness and offering any available spots to wait list families in the order of our list.
We invite you to join our wait list. $100 non-refundable wait list application deposit applies.

note: the information below is from our pre-COVID operations. We were able to open in 2020 with several additional protocols to prevent the spread of COVID. Unfortunately this means several of our much loved programs were cancelled (swim team, group swim lessons, social events etc.). It is not yet known how 2021 operations may be impacted. We remain committed to providing a safe place for members to enjoy our pool and tennis offerings while following all CDC and state guidelines to keep our community safe and healthy.
Sun Valley Swim and Tennis Association is a seasonal facility with three outdoor tennis courts, a basketball court, tennis wall for practice and an outdoor pool with 25-yard lap lanes. Tennis is open weather permitting, typically April through November. The pool is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day. There is a shallow section of the pool, which starts at two feet deep for younger children. A large grass area surrounds the pool and includes several large trees and umbrellas, providing ample shady areas for sitting. There is also an area for barbecues and picnics.
Swim membership includes a six-week session of group swim lessons for children ages 4 and up, beginning at the end of June. Lessons are taught by WSI certified lifeguards and we follow the American Red Cross Swim Program. We offer both morning and afternoon lessons and the pool remains open during the lessons. Private swim lessons are available for an additional fee.
Swim membership also includes swim team for ages 5-16. Swim team practice is held in the morning before the pool opens and swim meets are on Wednesday afternoons.
Tennis membership includes unlimited use of the tennis courts from mid-April through the end of October or November (weather permitting). There are open groups that play regularly on weekend mornings. Cardio Tennis, Round Robins, Club Tournaments and Inter-Club Matches are also offered (fees may apply). Group tennis lessons are offered to adults and children by a professional tennis instructor for a small fee for six weeks, starting at the end of June. Private lessons are also available to suit your schedule.
Social events include a Welcome Brunch, 4th of July and Labor Day game days, Kids Night, Teen Night and Adult Night at the pool. The brunch and game day activities are included in the membership dues. Registration fees apply for kids, teen and adult nights to cover the cost of dinner.
The pool is located at 14 Fairlawn Lane in Lexington.
