Ann Arborites Relax At Poolsides
Huron Valley Club Popular
What's a more wonderful way to spend a long, hot summer than to enjoy the exercise and, at the same time, the relaxation afforded by a swimming pool?
New swimming and recreation clubs have sprung up on all sides of Ann Arbor, offering the “city folk” the opportunity to get away from it all and enjoy the outdoors, with pools, tennis courts, trampolines, shuffleboard and volley ball courts.
The Huron Valley Swim Club, located on Park Rd., will observe its fifth anniversary at 3 p.m. Sunday with a ceremony honoring the club’s founders and a water show put on by club members and guest performers.
On Aug. 4, swimmers from five area pools will compete for the club championship. Participating in the meet, which will get under way at 7:30 p.m., are the Chippewa Hills Swimming Club, Barton Hills Country Club, Recreation Unlimited in Ypsilanti, Ann Arbor Recreation and the Huron Valley Club.
UP IN THE AIR: Jane Lommel, daughter of the Edward LommeIs of Copley Ave., bounces up and down on the Huron Valley Swim Club trampoline in fine form. Situated beside the pool, swimmers alternate to and from it, giving the "tramp” a real workout. Watching Jane is Pam Swartz, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Walter H. Swartz of Sunset Rd.
SUMMER IN THE SAND: The Huron Valley Swim Club’s sandbox is a popular hangout for the younger set, though it's only one of many facilities available at the club. Spending the summer in the sand are, (left to right), Tom Fitzpatrick, son of the Thomas B. Fitzpatricks of Peppermill Way: Sherry Carpenter, daughter of the David M. Browns of W. Liberty St.; Ronnie Codd, son of the Edgar Codds of Hampton Ct.; and Sherry’s brother. Cliff Carpenter.
WATCH THAT FORM: Executing some well rehearsed dives together from the Huron Valley swimming club’s two diving boards are (left) Andy Bateman, son of the William Batemans of Arbor View Blvd., and Lani Loken, daughter of the Newton Lokens of Glen Leven Rd. The youngsters receive swimming and diving instructions from the club manager, also Lani's father, who is the U-M physical education supervisor and gymnastics coach.
