Pool, Tennis, Gazebo
 
 
A swimming pool (30' by 60'), gazebo, and tennis courts are among the amenities available to Windgate II residents.
 
Social gatherings are held throughout the year, including a community barbecue, community-wide yard sale, and "pooch paddle" for dogs on the last day of the pool season (see photos). Some courtyards even host block parties.
 
If you have an idea for a community event, the social activities committee would love to hear from you (please use the form at the bottom of the Contact Us page to email Jennifer Commander). 
 
Pool
 
To get into the pool, residents and guests must present passes to the lifeguard. Pool passes are issued only to residents who are up-to-date on condo payments and not in violation of any architectural standards. Pool passes must be revalidated each year.
 
Every owner must complete and return a pool pass application by April 1, 2019. Access to the pool will be denied without a valid pool pass or guest pass for 2019. If you were issued and kept a plastic card pass in 2018, please request renewal stickers for 2019. If you do not have your pool pass from last year, you must request a new card. Replacement of resident pool passes will cost $20 per pass.

If you are renting your unit, you may convey your right to use the pool to your tenant by completing the appropriate section of the pool pass application. Please provide a copy of the tenant’s lease with the pool application. Only owners OR renters can use the pool. If an owner conveys their rights to the pool to their tenants, the owner will not be eligible to receive a pool pass.
 
Keep your pool passes. Next year, you will receive a new sticker to put on your plastic pool pass card. There is a replacement fee if your resident pool pass card is lost, stolen, or discarded and you need a new card for the new pool season. Also, do not discard any 1-day guest passes you purchased this year as they do not expire.
 
Pool Rules
 
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.
 
To better ensure that our Swimming Pool Regulations are in alignment with the Fair Housing Act, the 15 minute “adults only” swim will now be a 15-minute “lap” swim. Swimmers of any age may be in the pool during the last 15 minutes of each hour, if they are swimming laps.
 
Gazebo 
 
Residents may reserve the gazebo for a private social function by submitting an application and security deposit to Randee Coleman, FSR. 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. Consumption of alcohol is strictly prohibited. Residents must clean up after the event and leave the gazebo in its original condition. Guests attending the event should park on S. Arlington Mill Dr. and not in the Windgate parking lots.
 
 
Tennis Courts 

Two tennis courts are available for residents (shared with Windgate III). You will need a key to access the courts, which you can get from FSR. A $10 refundable deposit is required to get the key and it is yours to use for as long as you live at Windgate II. If the key is lost or stolen, a $50 fee is required to get a replacement key. 
 
Courts must be vacated at closing time (10:00 pm). Players must turn off the lights when leaving, if no one else is waiting to play. 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 property. If management gets complaints that people are not sharing the courts, then the reservation rules and strict time limits will be enforced.
