Opening Day – Saturday, May 21st

Ready or not it’s finally time to kick the 2016 season off! We would like to welcome you to, or welcome you back to this little urban slice of paradise.

The WW Pool Board would like to extend a special greeting to everyone joining the club this year. Wedgwood is a community, and our goal is to keep everyone safe and keep the pool fun. In order to keep our community connected, Wedgwood needs member involvement. We need members to participate in work parties, volunteer for the Board, help with the swim team, keep the pool clean, and keep a positive attitude. Volunteering is also an opportunity to meet new people. This community has given me some great friends over the last 30 years.  I’m looking forward to getting to know you, too.

Let’s make the 2016 Swim Season another wonderful summer at Wedgwood!  We want everyone’s experience at Wedgwood to be positive and rewarding.  If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding Wedgwood, please feel free to contact me or any other Board member. All Board members (and their phone numbers) are located in the pool directory.

From the Manager
The pool is scheduled to open on Saturday, May 21st, pool hours will be 12-7pm. We have a lot going on on opening day. See below for more info on all of that. And despite what Cliff Mass has been saying about the weather for next weekend the pool will still be a comfy 84 degrees.

Please remember we request that this first weekend be for members only. Additionally, we will not be scheduling any parties through Friday of the first week as well.

It’s great to be back!
