  • 18 hard-surface tennis courts
  • Paddle tennis
  • Squash
  • Racquetball courts
  • 25-meter outdoor swimming pool
  • The Poolside Bar + Grill
  • Atrium + Terrace
  • The Bar
  • The Wine Lounge

“We continually seek out strategic opportunities that add value and upgrade our membership experience,” said Matthew Stevens, the Bay Club’s president, in a press release. “Manhattan Country Club’s state-of-the-art amenities and offerings perfectly complement those found at our swim and tennis clubs, sports resorts and golf and country clubs.”

The company operates 23 locations across California, and is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. Bay Club is known for its “sports resort model,” which include anywhere from 16 to 18 indoor/outdoor tennis courts, two to four swimming pools, and 60,000 to 80,000 square feet of clubhouse amenities.

The Bay Club Company’s headquarters lie in San Francisco, California, and the company classifies itself as an active lifestyle and hospitality enterprise with a network of modern country clubs that welcome more than 50,000 memberships. Campuses can be found within San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles and San Diego. Bay Club employs more than 3,400 people.
