Updated:  June 16th, 2017

We are very excited to be opening for our summer season Saturday, June 17th.  Things will be a little different this summer as you all know, so we want to go over a few of the basics:

 

Hours
Pools 8 am - 8 pm (7 pm as of August 21st)
Tennis 6 am - 8 pm (adjusted for the season as the summer progresses)

Pavilion 11 am - 8 pm
Snack Bar 10 am - 6 pm

 

Parking
We will be using the usual parking lots this summer.  Handicap parking will be located near the outdoor playground/hardtop area (see below for specific details on handicap parking). Please be sure to use the crosswalks while crossing the street.

 

Member & Guest Check-In

To check into the facility please cross the street using the crosswalks and proceed up Boston Road towards the white house.  Turn right down the paved pathway just before the white house. Follow pathway down along where the building was and across to the right which will lead you to the outdoor desk.  All check-in, court bookings, membership services and program registrations will take place at the outdoor desk. Please refer to the map below:

Handicap Parking/Access
The driveway between Cedardale and DiBurro’s will be the access for those needing handicapped accessibility.  Handicap parking spots will be located just outside the outdoor gate by the playground. Instructions will be posted on how to gain access to the outdoor facility.  We ask that those using this area drive slowly along the driveway.  Upon exiting please speak with a staff member at the outdoor desk to let them know you need to leave and they will open the gate.

 

Payment Options

We will be accepting cash, check or credit card on file for any purchases made while at the facility.  We will not be accepting charges to Cedardale accounts this summer. The Food Pavilion and Snack Bar will be operating as usual.  You will also be able to purchase necessity items such as tennis balls, swim diapers, sunscreen and more at the check-in desk. . This first week we are still preparing our systems - internet and club management system so to be safe we recommend you use cash or check for the first week.

 

Bad Weather Procedures
In the event of inclement weather please call the main number (978) 373-1596 and select the option for Cedardale's Summer Outdoor Desk to determine if we are open.  We will also be posting changes to our schedules on the Cedardale Health & Fitness Facebook page and our website Cedardale.net   

 

In the event of thunder all pools must be cleared for 15 minutes from the last sound of thunder. Members may remain at the facility.

 

In the event of lightning, the entire facility will need to be cleared.  We ask that members proceed to their cars.  We can not reopen until 30 minutes after the last sight of lightning. Parents who typically leave a child at the facility without a parent please keep in mind we do not have any indoor facilities this year and someone must be available to pick up your child in the case of a weather closing.

 

Once again we are looking forward to a fun summer at Cedardale and we thank you for your patience with us as we have been confronted with a great deal of uncertainty. If you have any questions please feel free to call 978-373-1596.


Update:  May 9th, 2017
We are progressing as planned for an opening of our outdoor summer facilities on Saturday, June 17th. We have put together a few questions and answers to help you decide whether a Summer Membership is right for you!  

What does a Summer Membership cost?
We will once again offer individual, couple, and family package plans for our Summer Membership.  Because there will be no health club facilities to accompany the Summer Membership the price has been significantly reduced compared to last year's prices.  Please call our Membership Department or our Bookkeeping Department at (978) 373-1596 ext 1 or 2 for Summer Membership Pricing.

 

Can we tour the facility?

Right now we are unable to tour the outdoor facility due to the ongoing demolition.   Please refer to our website for our summer video and pictures of our outdoor facilities.

 

How will we access the outdoor facility?

The best way to enter the outdoor facility will be determined once demolition is complete. Construction on the new facility will not begin until September. There will be no building or indoor access this summer.

 

Is the opening date a guarantee?

No.  It is not 100% guaranteed.  The opening of the outdoor facility is dependent on receiving city approval which can only be received once the demolition is complete.  We have been working closely with the city of Haverhill and they are optimistic and excited to get us back up and running and foresee no problems with opening on that date.

 

What are the guest fees?

Guests fees are similar to past years:
Guests (18+ yrs old) $12 per day
Juniors (3 - 17 yrs old) $ 8 per day
Toddlers (1 - 2 yrs old) $ 5 per day
All guests are limited to 1 visit per month.  The only exception being guests who live 25 miles outside of the club. Keep in mind we do not refund or issue rain checks due to inclement weather.

 

Are swim lessons and swim team still being offered?

Yes, we will be offering both swim lessons and swim team with the exception of Preseason swim lessons.  Please click the appropriate link for detailed information.

 

Will there be court fees in Haverhill?

No. There will not be any outdoor court fees or round robin fees during the summer in Haverhill.  

 

What will be offered for tennis programs?  

The offerings for tennis programs will be similar to last year with the addition of more evening programs.  We will have less USTA team play in the evening in Haverhill so that will give us the opportunity to have more Round Robins. We will be offering our traditional weekend round robins.  Please click for Junior Summer Tennis Lessons. Junior Tennis Camp has yet to be determined.

 

What happens in bad weather?

If there is heavy rain or thunder we can use the pavilions and bath houses to take cover. However, if there is lightening everyone will have to be quickly evacuated to their cars.

 

What will be available for food & beverage?

We will be operating both the Food Pavilion and the snack bar as usual. Please plan accordingly as there will be no indoor Courtside Lounge service to spread the traffic out.  We do allow members to bring in their own food.  Beer and wine is sold at the Pavilion.  NO Alcohol can be brought into the facility.

 

Can my nanny bring my kids to the club?

Yes, your nanny can bring your kids to the club. Your nanny will need a nanny pass. You can purchase a 30-day pass for $80 or one for the whole summer for f$160.  This pass does not provide membership privileges to the nanny.  Nannies can only access the club with the children.  If your nanny wants to use the outdoor club with full membership privileges they would need to purchase an individual summer membership. The nanny pass is for individuals 14 years and older. Please contact our Membership Dept. to find out what works for you and your nanny best.

 

To sign up for a Summer Membership please feel free to call (978) 373-1596 ext 1 or 2

 

Update: Monday, May 1st
We are happy to inform you that we are moving forward with plans to open our outdoor facilities on Saturday, June 17th.  Details on membership pricing and programs will be forth coming this week.  The opening of our facility is subject to city approval, however, communication with the city has all been positive and there appears to be no anticipated problems.

We know many of you have been waiting patiently for information on our summer operations and we truly appreciate your understanding in this matter.

Update:  Tuesday, March 21st

Cedardale is very excited to announce that we are taking the first step to getting Cedardale up and running. We are close to finalizing an agreement that will allow us to offer tennis, group exercise and fitness in an alternate location. This is especially important news for our tennis program, as we know many of our members are in the process of making plans for the summer leagues. More information and specific details will follow in the days ahead.

As you know, our ultimate goal is to rebuild in our original location, though we all know this will take time. Our intent is to keep you as informed as possible throughout the process.

We are also working very hard toward opening our outdoor facility this summer. Our plan is to offer a summer membership that would include swimming, tennis and all programs that accompany those activities. Details of our summer membership will be confirmed and communicated in the coming weeks.

Thank you all for your continued patience and understanding as we work through our next steps. We look forward to seeing the Cedardale Family back together again soon!
