About Roton Point
We're a private swimming, sailing and tennis association located on 12.8 acres on Long Island Sound in Rowayton, Connecticut.
Membership is limited to 400 unit owners and their families. New members either purchase or license a unit from one of the current owners.
Our facilities include a 25-meter lap swimming pool with separate diving and kiddie pools; eight beautifully-maintained Har-Tru tennis courts; storage and launch areas for small sailboats and kayaks; a swimming beach; a breezy, shaded picnic grove overlooking Long Island Sound; the restored Victorian bathhouse with lockers and a snack bar; and the restored Victorian-era "hotel" for social events.
Summer programs include children's youth activities, tennis and sailing classes for children and adults, weekend sailing races and annual regattas, tennis and swimming competition, and a full social calendar of dances and other events.
Overall management of Roton Point is the responsibility of the Board of Directors, who are member-volunteers elected for three-year terms, along with the General Manager, who reports to the President of the Board.
A Message from the Board President...
It's no secret that I love this place. I've been lucky to be a Roton Pointer for over 50 years. I still have friends I met here when I was in kindergarten, and friends I just met here this summer. And new friends yet to come.
We've all made the choice to be here, to be Roton Pointers. We could've joined a posh country club with a golf course and a formal restaurant, but we didn't. We could've joined any number of local swim and tennis clubs, but we didn't. We could've just stayed home, but we didn't do that, either. There's something that brought us all here.
Our friendly and informal family atmosphere, our rich history as an amusement park and big band venue, the thrill of sailing a catamaran, the camaraderie on our tennis courts, the pleasure of making and keeping friendships, music in the grove, the lapping of the waves on our beach, the breathtaking beauty of our grove sunset.
Thanks to our manager and directors -- at tennis, aquatics, waterfront, camps -- there's always something fun to do at Roton Point.
But if you do just ONE thing when you get here, it's to simply relax. When you come through our gate, you're on vacation. Slow down. (Literally, slow down -- 5 miles per hour!). Dial down the stresses in your life. Sit in an Adirondack chair in the grove and watch the ever-changing scenery of Long Island Sound. Meet the family at the next picnic table. Put your feet in the sand. Try a new activity. Most of all... have fun!
Welcome to Roton Point!
