Pool, Tennis, Gazebo
A swimming pool (30' by 60'), gazebo, and tennis courts are among the amenities available to Windgate II and Windgate III residents.
The community typically plans some social gatherings throughout the year, such as a community barbecue, ice cream or food trucks, a Halloween party, and a "pooch paddle" for dogs on the last day of the pool season (see photos
). Some courtyards even host block parties.
The pool opens on Saturday, May 27, 2023, and closes on Sunday, September 17, 2023.

The Association uses a pool pass management system called Member Splash. Residents have the option to upload a photo to Member Splash or to bring a government issued picture ID to the pool for each visit. Guests are also managed in Member Splash.
All residents and guests who use the pool are responsible for obeying all instructions from our lifeguards and for following our pool rules
. Any failure to comply with these rules shall be considered sufficient cause for barring violators from the pool area. Three written violations will lead to the revocation of pool privileges for the remainder of the pool season.
Residents may reserve the gazebo for a private social function by submitting an application to the Community Manager. The gazebo may be reserved between the hours of 10:00 am and midnight.
Noise must be minimized after 10:00 pm in accordance with Arlington County law. Residents must clean up after the event and leave the gazebo in its original condition to avoid being assessed a charge. Guests attending the event should park on S. Arlington Mill Dr. and not in the Windgate parking lots.
The gazebo area has a grill and fire pit for resident use.
If residents rearrange the gazebo furniture, it must be restored to its original position. Tables and chairs are not be be left inside the gazebo structure.
Two tennis courts are available for residents of Windgate II and III. You will need a key to access the courts which may be obtained from the Community Manager with a $20 refundable deposit. The tennis courts are also striped for pickleball play.
The community is pleased to offer an online reservation system via Calendly for tennis court ‘B.’ The 'B' court may be reserved in 30-minute time blocks. Reservations may be made up to 24 hours in advance. Tennis court ‘A’ is unreserved.
To make a reservation, go to https://calendly.com/tenniswindgatesam/
and follow the screen prompts to select the 30-minute event. Then pick the day and time you want to reserve. You will be asked to provide your name, email address, mobile phone number and unit number. You will receive an email confirmation for your reservation. If you need to reserve the court for longer than 30 minutes, you will need to repeat the process.
Courts must be vacated at closing time (10:00 pm). Players must turn off the lights when leaving. Hours when tennis courts may be used:
- Sunday -- Thursday 7:00 am to 10:00 pm
- Friday -- Saturday 7:00 am to 11:00 pm.
There are rules (in our governing documents) regarding how Court A is for unreserved use and Court B is for reserved use. In reality, not enough people use the courts to make reservations necessary. If the court is open and no one is waiting, it’s yours to play on. If you are playing and other people are waiting, be courteous and limit your use to one hour so others can enjoy the community’s recreational facilities. If management gets complaints that people are not sharing the courts, then the reservation rules and strict time limits will be enforced.
