Kenmont Swim & Tennis Club Rules & Regulations

These rules and regulations do not contemplate every possible situation or scenario.  The primary purpose is to provide the membership and their guests with guidance regarding appropriate behavior and conduct to ensure a safe and enjoyable membership experience.

* Management (which includes designated Board Members) reserves the right to regulate any behavior or conduct deemed dangerous, inappropriate, disruptive or otherwise outside the expected norms of the Kenmont community.

  • Members must be active, paid in full for the season, and in possession of their ID card.

  • Swim testing will be offered regularly according to a posted schedule.  Swim testing outside the regularly posted schedule may be conducted upon request at the discretion of the pool manager.  The pool manager (and lifeguards) will make reasonable efforts to accommodate testing requests so that members and guests may enjoy the pool based on their abilities.

  • Notwithstanding this standing prohibition, members may use the pantry area and appliances for certain limited and minimally burdensome purposes.  For example, occasional use of the refrigerator/freezer to store a birthday cake, or filling a water bottle with ice is appropriate.  Keeping left overs, storing a week’s worth of hotdogs or filling a cooler with ice are examples of inappropriate use. 
  • Members are responsible for cleaning up after any use of the kitchen.
  • Any items left after closing for the day may be thrown away or moved to the “Lost and Found.”

 

Birthday Parties/Group Events

  • The hosting member is responsible for the conduct of all non-member guests.

  • The Lost and Found is maintained as a benefit for the membership and at the discretion of management.  Members and guests assume the risks and responsibilities for any abandoned or forgotten items.
  • Management will periodically during the season sort and dispose of lost and found items.
