Thank you for being a valued member of Fairlawn Swim and Tennis.  We hope that these general rules and guidelines provide you and your family with an understanding of our expectations as members of the Club.  These rules are intended to be followed not only by you, but your guests as well.

Of course, there may be situations or circumstances that are not defined here.  Should that occur, the Club Manager has the authority to resolve the situation.  Our goal as a Club is to be fair and to treat all members with dignity and respect, but ultimately, the Board has a responsibility to insure the proper enjoyment and safety of all members and their guests and these rules reflect that:
