Family swim and tennis since 1961
The Rafael Racquet Club is family-friendly swim and tennis. Perched atop a sunny hill in San Rafael, we give our members something more than just a place to play tennis or swim laps; it’s an escape from the everyday.
Open year-round, we pack our calendar with events, programs and classes, while leaving ample time for just hanging out with family and friends.
Your escape is waiting for you at RRC.
The construction of RRC broke ground in 1959, and was finished on May 10, 1961. The opening day of RRC included an exhibition tennis match featuring Jack Kramer and his world professional tennis troupe and an Ann Curtis and her “AnnTeeks” Synchronized Swimming display.
The Club was originally built as a community pool (privately owned) for the newly built Racquet Club Estates. In 1975, the Club was purchased by its members and has since been operated as a member-owned Club.
RRC has always been true to its beginnings as a tennis and swim facility that aims to be a meeting place for friends and family, and is special to its members for its warm and welcoming environment.
The Rafael Racquet Club is a private, member-owned club. Our families come to relax, socialize, and enjoy competitive pursuits in a family-friendly environment.
RRC keeps an active calendar of league tennis, instructional programs and social activities, all while keeping ample time for year-round drop-in tennis and recreational swim.
