Bridge games are held every Monday and Wednesday evenings in the Auditorium. Our more informal games are held on Monday evenings so there is no competition in winning. On Wednesday evenings, more serious players can come with a partner or by themselves for an evening of duplicate bridge. Winning results are posted on our TV channel and posted on bulletin boards. Enjoy good company, entertainment, refreshments and fun while you enhance your bridge skills!
Don Spitzer is the chair of duplicate games and Hannah Hayman is the chair of social games.
The Fitness Committee
The Fitness Committee oversees outdoor sports, arranges competitions, and coordinates its activities with the Fitness Director.
Bill Crawford is the Chair.
The Quadrangle has a 6-hole, par 3 golf course for the use of residents and their guests. Once a year an open tournament is held on the course, with golf carts available and prizes awarded. We also have a putting green where frequent tournaments are held.
Barbara Hayes is the Chair.
There is a well-maintained tennis court near the cottages. Players themselves arrange informal games and competitions.
Harold Haft is the Tennis Coordinator.
Croquet is another popular activity of The Quadrangle’s well-rounded Fitness Program. Our natural grass court, on the south lawn of the Manor House overlooking the beautiful South Brook Valley, provides an ideal setting for both recreational and competitive croquet. We play a relaxed competitive Lawn Croquet rules on Sundays throughout June and Wimbledon rules in September. Modest prizes and trophies add spice to the competition! All residents are invited to play so it becomes a social event also.
Pete Ridgway is the Chair.
The Fitness Committee offers both indoor and outdoor walking opportunities for residents. Each month the group sponsors a walk in arboreta, college campuses and other verdant locations nearby. They are a good way to see new vistas as well as exercising. For those who prefer to be shielded from the elements, an extensive system of walkways connects the seven apartment buildings and offers climate-controlled walkways all year-round. The Quadrangle’s residents can walk indoors for half a mile without retracing our steps. Additionally, the Haverford Township Community recreation and Environmental Center has an indoor walking track just a short distance away, which is free to all Quadrangle residents. Other nearby walking opportunities includes the Haverford College campus as well as the Haverford Reserve and the Radnor Trail – all within a 10-minute drive.
Steve Floreen is the Coordinator.
