Village of Winding Trails Bath & Tennis Club
|Pool Hours:||Saturday-Thursday: 11AM-9PM Friday: 11AM-10PM|
The purpose of these rules is the safety of all our members and their guests and to provide all with an enjoyable visit to our neighborhood pool.
· No lifeguard on duty; adult supervision required.
· Pool gate is to remain closed at all times during open pool hours. Exceptions are only during neighborhood events or if you need to prop it open to carry in items for a party.
· Lifeguards have the final authority.
· Guests are permitted in the tennis courts or pool only when accompanied by a Bath and Tennis Member. Based on pool conditions, the lifeguard has the discretion to limit the number of guests per member present to 2 at a time.
If your total group consists of 10 or more people (members included), you must follow the procedures for a party event at the pool. For example, if a family of 4 members brings 6 or more guests to the pool, you are required to call Rich Gebhardt (trustee) at 314-651-3413
well in advance to make party arrangements. See next item:
· If you wish to have an event (birthday party, etc.) at the pool, contact Rich Gebhardt letting him know the type of event and the number of adults & children. The maximum number, subject to change, is 25. Your date and time must be reserved so your event won’t conflict with another event or overload the pool and compromise pool safety. There may be restrictions on day and time. For example, there should be no problem during the mornings but afternoons on Saturday and Sunday may be a problem depending upon the number in your party. Please have your event confirmed well in advance. Commercial Events are never allowed and Personal Events must be approved by the Trustees who reserve the right to deny an Event.
· At the top of every hour the lifeguard will blow the whistle to “clear the pool” for 15 minutes. All swimmers, including adults, must be out of the pool. This includes the steps. This time is for guards to refill water bottles, use the bathroom, check chemicals and attend to other maintenance details. If they are finished with their duties before the 15 minutes has run out, the remaining time will be called for “adult swim”. The guard will then return to the deck to watch the pool. This rule will only affect our adult swimmers when there in one lifeguard on duty. Typically this is at 12:00, 1:00, 5:00, 6:00, 7:00 & 8:00 daily and 9pm on Fridays.
