In 1970, Madison resident Harold Strong financed the construction of the football, soccer and softball fields at the Surf Club. Through out the years, improvements have been made to the facility which has served the youth, high school sports teams and adult leagues as Harold Strong originally envisioned.
Strong Center at the Surf Club is a non-profit organization formed for the purposes of renewing and maintaining this wonderful gift to benefit not only team sports, but to transform Strong Field into a showcase cultural and sports venue.
Constructed within the existing site, the facility will have a turf-field multi-purpose athletic park and softball field, both of which will be lighted. In addition their will be two field houses, a concession stand and an entry plaza that will celebrate the accomplishments of our high school teams. Strong Center at The Surf Club will create a gateway to what is already a town gem, the end product being a first class facility to be enjoyed by the arts community and sports enthusiasts for generations to come.
