‘Black Eye on the Summer’: Private Swimming Club Vandalized in Manchester, New Hampshire

Police are working to determine who wrecked the grounds of an iconic swim club in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Lounge chairs were left in the pool, picnic tables were toppled and almost every trash can was turned over.

"To see it kind of puts a black eye on the summer," said member David Flurey.

Sudden Pitch, a swimming and tennis club, has been around for over 50 years, but members say nothing like this has ever happened. And because someone gained access to the pool area using a code, members feel the suspects have a connection to the club.

"Inside job, yes," said member Cindy Hamel. "And it's really sad."

Just two weeks ago, security cameras were stolen from the property, perhaps by the same vandals planning the crime, who wanted to make sure they weren't caught on video.

But before those surveillance cameras were stolen, the hard drive actually recorded a clip of what appears to be four suspects. Club members have been circulating those photos on social media.
