The Brittany Club is a community swim/tennis/social club situated on beautiful 27-acre Silver Lake in Brookhaven, Georgia. The club offers a wide variety of activities and amenities for its members, including a clubhouse, a 25-meter, 6 lane swimming pool with diving board, water slide and kids’ splash area, six lighted tennis courts (4 hard, 2 clay), a playground, a field and pavilion, a boat ramp, a dock, a beach, and a barbeque pit for cookouts. Managed by a volunteer board of directors, the Club hosts an active summer swim team, year-round ALTA and USTA tennis teams, and year-round social events for adults and families.
One of the first swim and tennis clubs in Atlanta, Brittany Club, established in 1962, was built on land donated by an original developer of the Brittany and Oglethorpe neighborhoods. Begun as a beach club using Silver Lake for swimming, the current Olympic-sized pool was built with a 25-year mortgage secured by a group of neighbors, who saw the need for a pool large enough for competitive swimming. The first two tennis courts were built shortly after the pool opened; two more courts were added in 1966, designed by Don Budge, and the fifth and sixth followed as membership grew. The eligible membership area gradually expanded as new neighborhoods sprang up.
