Since 1964, the Farmington Field Club in Farmington, CT has offered opportunities for adults and children to socialize, join teams, play tennis, swim, take lessons, or just relax and have fun. The Farmington Field Club is a family-oriented recreation facility. It consists of six tennis courts, three platform (paddle) tennis courts, three pools (general swimming, wading and diving), a children’s play area, a picnic area, locker rooms and a clubhouse facility. A wide range of activities and lessons are available in the tennis, swim and paddle areas.
The Farmington Field Club offers three pools to its members and their guests. Toddlers and young children enjoy a circular wading pool. The enclosed area also include swings, a plastic climber, and water toys to keep even the most active tot occupied. The center attraction of the pool area is a six-lane, 25-meter pool, ranging in depth from 3 to 5 feet. One lane is always reserved for lap swimming, and the rest of the pool is available for recreational use. The separate diving pool is perfect for practicing dives and playing supervised games. The pool area offers large awnings with lounge chairs underneath, for those who prefer shade from the sun.
The dedicated staff of lifeguards on duty ensure the safety of all swimmers. Dressing rooms and showers are conveniently located adjacent to the pool area.
The pool is open Memorial Day through Labor Day, with additional hours through mid-September, weather permitting. Swim teams, clubs and lessons are available including diving lessons for juniors.
Throughout the year the Field Club hosts a variety of social events for members and guests to get together. The club has a lovely outdoor patio seating area with a commercial grill for the use of our members and for club events. Family events include barbeques on Opening Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day, with pool and tennis games for kids, and ice-cream sundaes. The club also hosts a special Awards Night family dinner at the end of July. For adults only, we offer an annual mid-summer party, with cocktails, a catered dinner, and entertainment. Junior team members especially look forward to the annual Lake Compounce day trip and a camp-out sleepover night at the club.
Just for Kids:
For kids of all ages, drop-in programs are offered daily throughout the season. FFC staff members lead the kids through a fun and organized craft project in the shaded picnic area. And every day and all day, traditional ice cream treats are sold for $1 each at the paddle hut. Kids sit together on the grassy lawn and enjoy a refreshing break from the sun.
The tennis courts are open daily, from early morning until dusk. Members can view and book their courts through our website. Teams for men, women and mixed doubles as well as junior and children are available. Group tennis clinics are offered daily to adults and children at all levels of play. Private lessons are also available and are a great way to focus on a specific skill with the undivided attention of an instructor.
While the pool is closed for the winter season, the paddle courts are open. They are available for play throughout the fall, winter, and spring months. A 800 square foot, all season lodge features ample viewing, couches, TV, fireplace, and a small kitchen area! This serves as a great warming hut for paddle players and the host site for all of their events and tournaments.
