Welcome to the Village of Oak Brook!
Dear Friends and Neighbors:
Summer is here and the Bath & Tennis Club is off to a great start! We started the season off by resurfacing the pool deck with an acrylic non-slip paint to provide better traction and to keep the ground temperature cooler. A new hit this summer has been the fun lawn games to enjoy by the pool including bags, giant connect 4 and giant jenga. Electrical outlets were installed at the pool to give us easier access to setting up all our electrical equipment for our swim team meets and conference this year.
The golf course is experiencing the best spring/summer weather since 2012. We had an early March opening which is crucial to all of our members who don’t always get away during the cold winter months.
The utilization of the Sports Core property has never been busier as well. The past 2 or 3 weekends every aspect of the sports core is being used from golf, soccer, swimming, tennis, cricket, jogging and bicycling.. There is something for everyone.
I hope you were able to attend the annual Taste of Oak Brook! It as an absolute beautiful day, good food, music, activities for the family that concluded with a great fireworks display. It was nice to see so many people out enjoying the festivities!
Polo has been a big hit this year as well. Since the composing of this notice, there have been 2 Sundays with great attendance numbers and three more dates to go, July 17th, August 7th and August 21st. Come out and see the new format and enjoy a Sunday afternoon of Polo!
