Poplar Heights Recreation Association is a private, not-for-profit, member-owned club. We limit equity membership to 450 and non-equity membership to 100.

Equity members (also referred to as “shareholders”) must purchase a share, are co-owners of the club, and have voting rights.

Non-equity members (also referred to as “renters”) do not need to purchase a share, are not considered co-owners, and do not have voting rights.

The current share price $3078.

The 2024 dues for:

  • Shareholders – $700 for the first person and $45 for each additional person
  • Renters – $1100 for the first person and $45 for each additional person

The deadline for current shareholders and renters to pay dues is March 1st of every year.  A late fee of $125 will be applied for payments made after March 1st. 

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.

Prospective members should fill out the form below to be placed on the equity, non-equity, or both waiting lists and to pay the one-time $25 waitlist fee.  Once the fee has been paid, the registrar will add the interested party to the waitlist. The prospective member can track their status on the lists (links provided below) using their registration date and a waistlist ID that is derived from their first initial along with the first three letters of the last name.  Interested parties will be listed in the order in which their request and payment was received.  Please note -the waitlists are subject to change and your status may go up or down as we work to ensure the waitlists are accurate.

If a prospective member is offered an equity or non-equity membership, and they decline, they will be removed from the waitlist(s).  This does not preclude them from asking to be added to the waitlist in the future.  For more information, please see the membership FAQ page.

The turnover stats for the 2021, 2022, and 2023 seasons are below. You can use these stats to get an idea of how long you will be on the waitlist:
