The Long Ridge Club (LRC) is a 50+ year-old, private tennis and swim club located in Stamford, Connecticut. Situated on 15 acres, LRC is one of the most beautiful clubs in the area. The Club features nine tennis courts with three equipped for night activity, a large swimming pool that supports competitive swim activities, as well as recreational swimming, a tennis backboard court, a kiddie pool and a small children's playground. Snack bar and locker/clubhouse facilities are also available to members.
The Club officially opens Memorial Day weekend and closes Labor Day weekend. Tennis activities generally start in early-May and last through mid-October.
Please contact the Club for more information regarding membership at 1.203.322.1800 or email@example.com
The main pool at LRC is 25 yards long, is heated and is designed to appeal to all types of swimmers. The shallow end, which is only three feet deep, has a gentle graduation; even the youngest and most cautious swimmers feel comfortable as they learn how to swim. The middle of the pool is dedicated to lap and competitive swimmers. At the far end of the pool, which is 12 feet deep, there are two diving boards. LRC has a competitive swim and dive team that offers children a chance to compete against other clubs around Fairfield County (FCSL) and also offers private & group swim and dive lessons all summer by certified instructors. The second pool is a kiddie-pool for babies and toddlers and just a few steps away there is a playground with swings, climbing structures, slides and tetherball. Around the pool area and playground, there are several canopies and lounge chairs with umbrellas to provide shade.
LRC has some of the most beautiful courts in the area. We have nine Har-Tru® courts that are well maintained, with adjacent restrooms, changing rooms and a pro-shop. Our tennis staff is always available to help players of all levels enjoy the game as they learn new skills. We have several competitive men's, women's and junior's USTA tennis teams that compete against other clubs in the area. In addition, private lessons and clinics are offered throughout the summer.
Long Ridge Club is affiliated with a group of other outstanding tennis clubs in Connecticut that include Shippan Racquet Club in Stamford, Kings Highway Tennis Club in Darien, Oak Hills Tennis in Norwalk, Fairfield Indoor Tennis, Trumbull Racquet Club, and Milford Indoor Tennis. The consortium of tennis clubs share staff, collectively market the great sport of tennis and promote tennis as a healthy, fun lifetime sport!
We are looking forward to another fun-filled summer in and are excited to welcome everyone back to LRC! Come out and reacquaint yourselves with old friends, make some new friends and enjoy our beautiful club.
