Parties are back at NSJ!

We have all missed celebrating with family and friends over the last two years, and we are happy to once again allow larger parties at NSJ. Prior to COVID, however, parties would often monopolize the pavilion, preventing other families from enjoying that space. To try and prevent this from happening again, we have created the Party Zone.

The Party Zone is a separate area located behind the diving boards that members can reserve in advance to host a larger gathering. It consists of four large picnic tables, along with umbrellas to provide ample shade, and is intended to accommodate up to 30 guests (members and non-members).

To reserve the Party Zone, members must pay a $50 non-refundable fee that will be paid through Members Splash at the time of booking. Please be aware that the $50 does not cover any guest fees for non-member party guests. 

Of course, members are still welcome to use the pavilion for gatherings, but we respectfully ask that these remain small. And please remember that ALL tables in the pavilion remain first-come, first-serve. We will not be reserving tables under the pavilion and we ask that members do not move tables or push them together.  We want to ensure that we can accommodate all of our members and their guests.

Availability

The Party Zone may be reserved any day of the week, during one of two time slots:     

  • Time slot #1: 12 – 3 PM
  • Time slot #2: 4 – 7 PM
  • Reservations outside of these specific periods will not be permitted.
  • Your party must remain in the party zone, no exceptions.
  • Non-members are welcome to enjoy the club all day as long as they are with an NSJ member family. 

Due to pool hours and staffing, please note that from May 28, 2022 – June 19, 2022, the Party Zone will only be available on the following weekends:

  • June 4th / 5th
  • June 11th / 12th
  • June 18th / 19th

Beginning June 20, 2022 the Party Zone will be available weekdays AND weekends.

In compliance with the NSJ Guest Policy, the Party Zone will NOT be available to rent on holidays (Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day). 

The Party Zone will not be available on select days throughout the summer due to swim and dive team meets, NSJ Summer Camp, and other previously scheduled Club events.  

The complete Party Zone schedule can be found on the NSJ calendar
