Brief Club History  (Click Here For Detailed Club History)

In the early 1960s a small, but nevertheless fun loving group of employees at the Shell Refinery in Martinez, California got together to do the two things they liked best, Square Dance and Party. They called themselves the Shell Swingers and they had a really good time. They had such a good time that their reputation began to grow and spread. Others joined the Club and in the mid-1980s they changed their name to the Martinez Swingers. But they are still doing the two things they like the best. Mysteriously enough, our reputation for dancing and having a good time is still growing.
