Payton Manley, of North Augusta, zips down the slide at the newly renovated swimming pool at the Hammond Hill Suburban Club. The pool, which now has six lanes, had its grand re-opening ceremony Saturday.

After undergoing extensive renovations, the Hammond Hill Suburban Club pool was opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Saturday morning.

“This project had been probably 10 years in the making,” board vice president Sandy Zeller told the board members, volunteers and eager young swimmers who gathered to celebrate the occasion.

During the off-season, the pool was expanded to create more swimming lanes. The plaster, tiles and decking were replaced, slides were installed and new lifeguard stands will soon be erected.

“The biggest thing was going from four lanes to six lanes,” Zeller said.

She said the swim team competes at larger pools, but with only four lanes, meets at Hammond Hills took longer.

“We want to be able to compete,” she said. “So now we’re proud to have those visiting swim (teams) come to our pool. We’re ready to show it off.”

Zeller also said that even though some subdivisions have their own swimming pools, Hammond Hill is the true community pool in North Augusta.

“We live in The Rapids,” she said. “My kids don’t want to go to that pool. They want to come where their friends are.”

After the ribbon was cut, about a dozen young swimmers jumped in the water and tested out the new slides.

Among them was 12-year-old Briggs Ballard, who attended with his mother, Lisa Ballard, and his grandmother, Dell Ballard. The two women sat chatting under the pavilion while the children swam under overcast skies and a few sprinkles.

Dell Ballard said she lives on West Avenue and her daughter-in-law and grandson live near Sudlow Lake Road. The family joined the pool about seven years ago when Briggs was 3-years-old. He learned to swim at the pool and later joined the swim team.

The family spent many hours at the pool, Dell Ballard said, adding that the renovations are really nice.

“This is the place to be in the summertime,” she said.
