Questionable weather? Wondering if the pool is still open?
In the event that we must unexpectedly close the pool due to lots of rain, thunderstorms, or heaven forbid - an accident in the baby pool, a text alert (or and email, if you prefer) will be sent to all subscribers with a Manorlu update. For those who may be familiar - Rained Out is the same service used by the Upper Dublin Soccer Club to notify members of field closures. It's free (text messaging rates apply) and only takes two minutes to sign up using this link:
How often and what kind of messages can you expect to receive? Hopefully we will have a sunny summer and the pool will close infrequently, but here is a sample of possibilities:
- Pool closed for weather (may seem obvious, but it can be raining in Dresher and sunny in Abington... and who wants to make the drive to find the pool closed!)
- Reminder for Manorlu events such as the 4th of July celebration, the Adult Social, Sunday Sundaes, and more.
- Reminder for pool closing for home swim meets
(Note for swim/dive team families: To receive notification of general pool closures and happenings, you must sign up using this link. It is a different account. It covers all Manorlu members and is different from the swim/dive team account. For non-swim/dive team families: This account will not be used to communicate general swim/dive team information.)
Please contact email@example.com if you have any questions.

Manorlu Sports Equipment
Manorlu has sports equipment available to members at the front desk. To borrow the equipment, just leave one dollar with the life guard while you play and get your dollar back when you return the equipment. We have basketballs, jump ropes, kick balls, volleyballs, shuffle board gear and more. Enjoy playing on the beautiful Manorlu grounds without lugging your sports gear with you.
Let's Have a Party!
Looking for somewhere to host a private graduation, birthday or anniversary party? Like to have a non-private family, team or other group outing? Consider the gorgeous grounds of Manorlu Swim Club! There are many options available. As the Board of Directors continues to look for new ways to show off our pool and generate funds, the pool may be made available on a very limited basis (once or twice a year) for a private function. Interested in any type of party at Manorlu? Please email email@example.com and we’d be happy to discuss this with you and help make it happen!
Clean Bathrooms are Our Goal
It is always our intention to have the cleanest possible bathrooms available to our members. The lifeguards and managers check and clean the bathrooms several times a day; however, it is possible that a bathroom can get "icky" very quickly. Please help the guards and manager-on-duty by reporting any bathroom messes to the front desk. Thank you!
