Thank you for your interest in The Stowe Tennis Club. We hope the following will give you an idea of what our club is about and inform you regarding the application process.
The Stowe Tennis Club at 1180 Barrows Road was founded as a non-profit organization in 1972. The nine clay tennis courts, swimming pool and clubhouse provide a friendly, social and community-oriented atmosphere. During the open season from May until October, the club offers tennis and swimming lessons, tournaments, social events, and a well-developed junior program.
The Stowe Tennis Club has a Board of Directors consisting of 11 voluntary members who are governed by a set of by-laws. Per the by-laws, there is a limit of 220 member certificates that can be issued. One certificate is issued per household, consisting of one or more persons, and represents one vote at the annual meeting. The price of a certificate is $2500 of which $1250 is refundable. In addition to the initial purchase of the certificate, members pay yearly dues. The dues range from $650 for a single, $1080 for a couple, and an additional $120 to $270 for children depending on their age. These prices are subject to change.
Members are considered part-owners of the club and can serve on a committee, participate in the yearly spring cleaning, or simply take part in keeping the facilities clean and beautiful. We expect members to be considerate of others and respectful of the rules as they enjoy the club and the surrounding property.
Since all certificates have been issued at this time, your completed application and recommendation letters will be considered when a certificate becomes available.
Please complete the attached membership application and return it by mail or email, at which time you will be placed on our waitlist for the next available certificate. In addition, three recommendation letters written by current members are needed to complete your application (see the recommendation form).
We look forward to hearing from you,
- The Board of Directors
