We are so pleased that you are considering joining the Eichler Swim and Tennis Club. We are a year-round club with an outdoor, six-lane 25-yard heated pool and diving well, four tennis courts, barbecue area, spacious club room, and wonderful club-wide events throughout the year.
When the club was originally set up, Eichler established a 300 member cap. This rule is determined by the City of Palo Alto as well as the Eichler Club bylaws. We are currently at that cap with a waiting list of 165+. It is hard to predict when a membership would become available but from our membership record it is predicted that there are about 20-30 memberships that turn over every year. This, of course, is an estimate and some years memberships could turn over more than others. The most active time for membership turnover is at the end February and August.
Prospective members must fill out an application form on the last page of the packet (link below) and submit a deposit of $250 in order to be added to the waiting list. (If you are dropping your check off at the club, be sure to place it in the SILVER mailbox by the entrance.)
Once your name is at the top of the list, you will be given notice of about two months that your membership is about to become active. At that time you can choose one of three options:1. Accept the next available membership. 2. Be moved to the bottom of the wait list. 3. Request to be taken off the list.
