The Annandale Swim and Tennis Club (AS&T), fondly referred to as our “hidden oasis” in the heart of Annandale is the perfect setting for creating summer memories. Some of the fun events planned for this season include Food Truck Fridays, bingo, movie nights, a family campout, and a pig roast.


Our pool is located at 7350 Little River Turnpike, behind the Wendy’s restaurant and close to the intersection of Hummer Road and Little River Turnpike. Set back from the road, AS&T has over six acres of green space for lounging in the sun or relaxing in the shade (and of course plenty of parking).

In addition to a 25-meter competition pool, diving well, and water slide, we also have a gated and shaded wade-in baby pool and a unique three-foot deep transitional pool for our beginning swimmers. Tennis, basketball, and bocce ball courts, a small playground, and a swing set provide something for everyone.

We continue to invest in the pool community and the surrounding facility. Last season, we refreshed the pool entrance and the women’s bathroom. This season, the AS&T patio is getting a new look with seating and umbrellas for shaded dining during the day and lighted space under the stars.

Our swim team has won their division and been undefeated for two years in a row! We also have a dive team and tennis program with lessons for interested children. 
 
For those looking for adult fun, we have live music, dance parties, and grills available so you can host your own barbecue away from the hubbub and stress of everyday life.

Come join our family at the “Hidden Oasis.” Membership categories available this summer include family, single, senior couple, and senior single. For more information visit our website.
