The kids are back to school and life is settling back into the post-summer routine. While the youngsters increase their awareness in a variety of subjects, all CCV members have the chance to expand their Club knowledge. Think you’re a CCV know-it-all? Test your knowledge with the facts below:

Walking Tour: Did you know that there is a walking tour that showcases many beautiful trees, shrubs, annuals, and perennials on the Westhampton grounds? Numbered mahogany stakes indicate selected plant material that is referenced in a walking tour brochure, and brochures can be found at the front desk of the Westhampton Clubhouse, Fitness Center desk, and The Westhampton Shop. Spooky Sightings: Did you know CCV is rumored to have its own ghost? When the Westhampton Clubhouse was built in 1910, the third floor consisted of overnight accommodations. Some staff members working late at night claim to have heard odd noises and even seen a figure on both the main and third floors. Squash Pride: Did you know CCV boasts the sixth-largest squash league in the country? If that weren’t impressive enough, Patrick Chifunda, our head squash professional is ranked #2 in the WORLD in the 40+ division. Grand Slam: Did you know that Matt Hane, CCV’s Head Professional for Adult Tennis, just won three national tennis tournaments? This included two doubles tournaments which he played alongside his mom, who also served as his coach until he played at George Washington University.

Cones to Cocktails: Did you know that Ollie’s was originally a billiards room when the Westhampton Clubhouse was built? After the billiards room, it turned into an ice cream parlor and the man that worked the counter’s name was Ollie. Members enjoyed that space so much when they were kids, that when it became an adult-only space, it was named “Ollie’s” as an homage to fond memories of days filled with malts and ice cream cones. Ollie is still watching over the space, and a photo of him can be found just inside the lounge on the right-hand wall. If you have friends, colleagues or family members that would like to learn more about CCV, please contact Sarah Taylor, Membership Director, at sarah.taylor@theccv.org or 287-1444.
