Volume 1 - December 20, 2018



Welcome to the first newsletter for St. Albans Swim and Tennis Club. These newsletters will update our members and guests about all of the fun, excitement and important information surrounding St. Albans. We plan to publish once a month during the off-season and bi-weekly during the summer. 

Check out our new website!


We hope you enjoy the new, clean look and encourage you to share it with friends and potential members. Our new website will enable us to better communicate to current and potential members about club information and events.

We are pleased to announce that our swim coaches, Lisa Herbster and Svetlana Panayatova, have expressed their desire to return to coach our swim teams again this summer. Coach Lisa and Assistant Coach Svetlana are integral to the success of our swim team and mini-team.

Many of our swim team members participate in winter swim and dive teams and we are hearing lots of news about medals and improved times. Share your winter results with us via Facebook or email swim@StAlbansSwim.com. Many of our swimmers compete for Suburban Swim Club, Radnor Aquatic Club, Upper Main Line YMCA, Lansdowne YMCA, Episcopal Academy Aquatic Club and Baldwin Swim Club.



While the courts may not be open at St. Albans, our Head Tennis Pro, Phil Hahn and Assistant Pro, Amanda Frantz, run clinics and teams throughout the winter at various indoor facilities. Please reach out to them to learn more.
