The YMCA's and JCC are very popular for kids sports in Charlotte.

If it's neighborhood feel you're looking for, then try the Beverly Woods area. Excellent schools there and a much more family feel than Myers Park. Also close to country clubs and other neighborhood-like amenities.

Generally true. Most of us in urban neighborhoods join swim and tennis clubs for a fraction of the cost of HOA dues. And these clubs have great social opportunities as well.

Thank you! Beverly Woods looks great. Are Foxcroft, Mountain Brook, Barclay Downs, and Providence Park all similar to Beverly Woods?

I would say fairly similar - Foxcroft is very expensive and very nice. A small section of Providence Park goes to East Meck HS (the rest to Myers Park). Beverly Woods/Mountainbrook is part Myers Park and part South Meck. Barclay Downs is all Myers Park. I personally would prefer Barclay Downs unless one cares about getting a lot of the house for the money. True that houses are more expensive/sq ft but one can walk to schools, the mall and other shopping areas from most of the neighborhood.

Okay, good to know. Are you talking about places like the Y or country clubs?

Swim and Tennis Clubs... there are quite a few in Charlotte and folks tend to join the ones convenient to their homes.
