This is a test.
Welcome to the 2016 season of the Allenhurst Beach Club. The Club will open for Memorial Day weekend on Saturday, May 28th and will be open weekends only until June 18th, when it will be open daily.
The Board of Commissioners is excited to implement several improvement projects for the upcoming season. We will start replacing the pool decking, beginning with the eastern side of the pool and adding bulkheading to eliminate erosion under the deck. The pool fill system will be reconfigured so that water enters the pool through a trough at the deep end. There will be another entrance to the beach on the Allen Avenue side of the Club. The Borough has obtained grant monies to put in a park on the east end of Allen Avenue. We will be making necessary repairs to the perimeter wall as well. We are also planning on adding more cabanas to accommodate our members.
The Recreation program and Swim Team will be returning under the direction of Warren Towns. The program shall be open to all children who are members of the Allenhurst Beach Club between the ages of five years and twelve years, at the discretion of the Recreation Director. Further information on the program will be available at the Club. Tina Pritzlaff, our yoga instructor, will be returning to teach oceanfront yoga classes. Heather Wanner will be back as well, to direct the youth dances. The formal youth dance will be held August 14, 2016.
The legendary SS Allenhurst shuttle service will be back this season and the Fire Department will again be raffling off a prime beach parking space at the Allenhurst Beach Club. The winner will be able to pick a spot either at either the cabana or main entrance.
We remind members that space is at a premium. We again ask that you limit the number of chairs and umbrellas to the number of individuals on your membership. If you have five members, you can only store five chairs.
The Club will remain open until Labor Day weekend, September 5th, with a clean-out date of September 10th and 11th. Please have all valuables removed by that date.
We look forward to the 2016 season with great anticipation. We are continuing to improve our facilities and we wish you and your family an enjoyable season at the ABC.

ABC Pool Status
As you may have noticed, the water in our pool appears to be discolored as of late. We at the Allenhurst Beach Club would like to take this opportunity to offer an explanation for this change in appearance. We would first like to assure you that the discoloration is in no way affecting the quality of the pool water. The water is coming directly from the ocean and it is perfectly safe in which to swim. The color you see is due to a disturbance around the beach construction site. Installing our new well point system–the system that pumps water into the pool–displaced a layer of clay underneath the sand. Our well points are now working to clean this sediment out of the water, a process that should take approximately one week. This is a process that the pool undergoes at the end of every spring to prepare for the summer season and is perfectly normal. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but would like to assure you, once again, that the pool is perfectly safe for swimming.
As always, feel free to monitor the status of the pool with our live pool cam.
