Poplar Heights Recreation Association is a private, not for profit, member-owned club. We limit equity membership to 335 and non-equity membership to no more than 165 to ensure our club is a relaxed, fun and safe place.

Equity members must purchase a share, are co-owners of the club and have voting rights. Non-equity members do not need to purchase a share, are not considered co-owners and do not have voting rights.

Both types of members have access to the pool facilities in the summer and year-round access to the tennis courts, as well as to the remainder of the 10.4-acre property.

There is one unified waiting list for both types of memberships.  However, the waiting list is temporarily closed while the club ensures that its membership system is in full compliance with its Fairfax County Zoning special exemption permit issued in 1954.
