RULES

     We are a club with very few rules beyond what common sense and etiquette dictate.  Certain court times are fairly popular, so there is a reservation system that has worked very well since the inception of the club.  The Board of Trustees has the right to pre-empt time when a club event is scheduled.

RESERVATIONS

     Reservations are for one hour, but play can continue if there is no one scheduled after your hour.  Only one hour can be reserved in advance for any member.

     Reservations are taken by members who are Haworth residents, and posted as specified below.

HOURS OF PLAY

     The hours of play are limited to the period between 8:00 AM and 11:00 PM every day in accordance with our original agreement with the borough, and we must remain closed during the time the Haworth Swim Club is open, which runs from Memorial Day until Labor Day.

CLEAN UP

     We expect that the facilities will be left in equal or better condition than what you found when arriving.  Any debris left on the courts, deck, or in the hut should be cleaned up even if you are not the person having left it there.

GUESTS

     Guests are allowed without charge, but are limited to a maximum of 4 playing privileges per guest per September through May season. A guest may play a maximum of 1 time per month.
 
     All guests must be signed into the guest book located in the hut prior to play.  This is the responsibility of all members on the court with the guest.

MEMBERSHIP

     Each membership is defined as a family membership.

     Application is made to the Board of Trustees with a $50.00 deposit.

     Upon acceptance, the annual membership fee is due, less the deposit.  The dues for the 2011/2012 season are $375.00.

     Dues for existing members are payable in September.

     Members who participate in league play are required to pay for the expenses of such play (League dues, balls, & refreshments).  Other organized club events are at no additional cost to the membership.

     A member family is entitled to unlimited play within our rules, and can participate in all organized club events.

     In addition to the regular dues, there is a non-refundable initiation fee of $600.00 paid over a four year period as follows:  Year 1 - $200.00, Year 2 - $175.00, Year 3 - $125.00, Year 4 - $100. 

ASSESSMENTS

     The Board of Trustees has the authority to impose assessments on the membership in equal shares to cover any extraordinary expenses or deficits.

SUSPENSION

     The Board of Trustees has the authority to suspend or expel any membership for conduct detrimental to the interests of the club.

BY-LAWS

     We have by-laws that govern our relationship with the Borough of Haworth, since the club is located on town property.  We pay a nominal fee each year under a long term lease agreement, as well as our share of property taxes.  Our relationship with the town has been excellent.
