Weather related before opening for the day
If weather conditions are questionable before the Club is scheduled to open, the Club manager may decide to delay the opening. The Club will open only if the weather conditions improve.

If there is a question by a member on whether the Club will open either at the beginning of the day or after an earlier closing, the member should call the Club at 610-696-4390. If no one answers the phone, the member should assume the Club is closed at that time. Members may also check the Club’s Facebook page or web site for weather related closures.

LOST AND FOUND

At the end of the day the lifeguards may collect property left at the pool and store it in the garage next to the bathroom and shower facilities. This is done voluntarily by the lifeguards and neither they, nor Wedgewood Swim Club can be held responsible for any items left at the pool. Towels found at the pool are sometimes hung out on fence near picnic area so owners can claim them. Wedgewood Swim Club, may at its discretion discard any items left at the Swim Club.

LAWN CHAIRS

Lawn Chairs left at the Club must be stored on the chair rack in the lower pool area during the season. ALL CHAIRS MUST BE HUNG UP. The Wedgewood Swim Club is not responsible for these chairs. The chairs must be claimed within one week of Labor Day (last day pool is open). Chairs can be picked up at the fall workday. Left over chairs will be discarded by Wedgewood Swim Club. It may be a good idea to write you name on your chairs left at the Swim Club.
