Foothills Tennis and Swimming Club provides tennis, swimming and social activities to a membership of about 300 families. Our setting is casual, giving members "an extension of their own backyard".
Foothills has always been run with a "do it yourself" philosophy and enthusiastic, helpful members. From the beginning, swim meets, tennis tournaments, dinners, parties, and work days have been directed and put into action by the members. Today, the same principles on which our Club was founded still apply, providing the family-oriented, action-minded atmosphere that makes us unique.
"Foothill Country Club," as it was originally called, began as an idea of Ted Carter’s in 1953. In December of 1954 the Club became incorporated as a California non-profit corporation. Soon thereafter, the name was changed to the present title.The first Board of Governors consisted of Ted Carter (president), Dudley Zinke and Temp Peck (vice presidents), Gene Hammond (secretary), and Dick Abbott (treasurer). They ran a club with a "do it yourself" philosophy and enthusiastic, helpful members. Swim meets, tennis tournaments, dinners, parties, and work days were directed and put into action by the members. Today, these same principles on which our Club was founded still apply, providing the family oriented, action minded atmosphere which makes our Club unique.
Facilities and Programs
Our heated 25-yard pool is the center of many activities, including swimming lessons, teams, laps, and adult clinics. Across the main lawn are seven lighted tennis courts on which countless lessons, tournaments, clinics, and mixers take place. (All lessons and clinics are open to the public.) Members in need of refueling can take advantage of our open-use kitchen, large barbecue grills, and summer snack bar. They can also round out their workout in the fitness room.The Clubhouse is the perfect place to eat lunch, watch a game on TV, or relax with a good book on a comfortable couch. It's also ideal for parties, and is available for rent year-round. Club social events range from crab feeds to wine tasting to buffets with live music, and everything in between.
