View Ridge Swim and Tennis Club was established in 1958 as a facility where families could gather to enjoy swimming, tennis and other activities. In collaboration with club members, NAC Architecture studied over a dozen options for replacement of the existing pool with a new design that would best accommodate the membershipÂ’s range of ages, interests and activities. Each of the proposed concepts addressed the varied needs of family/recreational swimming, competitive swimming, water polo matches and practice, lap/fitness swimming, lessons and social activities in different ways. The preferred option was refined and presented to the club`s membership, who voted by a 90% majority to proceed with the project. With construction occurring during the off-season, the facility reopened in 2008, and includes a new 4,000-square-foot poolhouse and 6,000-square-foot outdoor pool.
