The Brookside Club Of Saratoga is a private member-owned, family-oriented swim and tennis club nestled among the trees in a quiet residential Saratoga neighborhood. Active swim and tennis programs for adults and children create an outstanding environment for the entire family. As a member-owned club, Brookside offers many advantages in addition to its numerous sports programs, and social events, all on an expansive club grounds.
The Brookside Club of Saratoga was founded in 1958 by six families known as the founding members. These families wanted a place that offered swimming, tennis, and a great social atmosphere.
After working with the City and the neighbors, Brookside was formed. The original club included just three tennis courts and a small pool.
The six founding members were:
- Mr. and Mrs. B. Gordon Cameron
- Mr. and Mrs. V. David Demarest Jr.
- Mr. and Mrs. Reg Foster
- Mr. and Mrs. Faber L. Johnston Jr.
- Mr. and Mrs. B. Earl Lewis
- Mr. and Mrs. William R. McMahon
More than 6 decades since those six founding members set forth their plan, to create Brookside, the club has blossomed into something the founders probably never imagined possible. The club now includes nine tennis courts, an expanded pool, and an extensive clubhouse that includes a children’s play room. Not to mention the children’s playground and the large grass area adjacent to the pool. With a close knit membership of 250 families, Brookside is a wonderful place for the whole family to enjoy.
The Brookside club being a member owned club, is looked after by a rotating group of board members. A list of Active board members can be found on the information page, in the meetings folder.
