Since January 2012, a core group of concerned citizens resolved to do what was right for the families and the community of Middletown, joined in the heartfelt belief that saving the township pool was essential.  Though we locked horns at times with the members of our town council, we walk away with a new appreciation of what goes into running a wonderful town like Middletown.  We would like to thank the Mayor, Town Council and Township Administration for listening and working endless hours to preserve this historic community asset and for keeping the swim club a vibrant place of summer recreation for residents of all ages. We thank the new operators, for stepping up and taking action.

Many residents have been awakened by this situation and we hope that we may all recognize the diverse needs of our community and the importance or working together to find common ground, despite differences, to continue to work to build our fine community.  Middletown belongs to all of us and we all have a role in protecting our resources, including our schools, library, our cultural center and of course the swim club, to name a few.  Thank you to all residents who have spent time serving Middletown in various ways.  The involvement of the residents in town matters is crucial in keeping our town alive and thriving.

The Middletown Swim and Tennis Club provides a slice of the American Pie to all.  We look forward to sharing that with the new operators and welcome new members to join this season and experience another dimension of the illustrious community of Middletown.  Please support your community, JOIN THE SWIM CLUB, ENJOY SUMMER FUN!
