Established in 1977, Southampton has a rich tradition dating back a generation of members. The same memories grandparents / charter members had with their children are now being formed once again with a new group of great youngsters all while enjoying the comfortable and beautiful environment Southampton provides. Having become an integral part of the southeastern Gastonia area, the club also attracts members from surrounding communities and from as far away as 50 miles.

The club was recently purchased in July 2010 by Taylor and Elke Smith. Understanding the ever-changing market and potential of such a unique physical layout the Smith’s have embarked on a mission to renovate and restructure the facilities with the purpose of creating the premier tennis and swim club in North Carolina. With elite tennis instruction and play, remodeled facilities, and the foremost swim and social atmosphere, there is simply no better place to start your club experience.

Access to Southampton Racquet and Swim Club is limited to members only. Memberships are available on an individual, couple or family basis. Memberships are not transferable. All memberships require payment of a one-time, non refundable initiation fee. The monthly dues vary based on the type of membership.
