The Farmington Field Club was founded in 1964 by a group of Farmington residents who had the idea to build a private swim and tennis club for Farmington residents.  For over 50 years, the club has provided recreation and relaxation to its members in one of Farmington Valley's most lovely settings.

The Farmington Field Club is host to the second-longest running tournament in New England, The Children’s Classic, formerly known as the Farmington Open. This USTA-sanctioned tournament got its start in1953 and has attracted top-notch players from all over New England and beyond.  Since 1984, all proceeds from the Children’s Classic Tournament have been donated to the Uconn Children’s Cancer Fund.
