Rafael Racquet Club offers a variety of aquatics activities to our membership. Throughout, we strive to meet our members’ varied needs by balancing instructional activities with open pool time.
Kids can swim year-round with the Marlins Swim Team, an age-group team with over 50 years’ history at RRC (come check out the records board!). For learners, the summertime offers ample opportunities for private and group instruction for all ages. Our adults are able to take part in Masters swim classes, WaterGym classes, and private instruction with our excellent teachers.
The 25 yard, seven lane pool is heated to 83 year round, offering space for lap swimmers, rec swimmers and program users. The pool schedule is dynamic, changing with the seasons to best accommodate our members’ activities.
Can I make a reservation to swim?
Members may make reservations to swim on weekdays until 3:30pm in lanes 2-4, and on weekends until noon. All other times are drop in.
Is the pool a “saltwater” pool?
Our pool is disinfected with chlorine that is “salt-generated”. This process uses actual salt to generate a form of chlorine that is gentler on the skin and eyes. Like all California pools, we have a back-up liquid chlorine system that kicks in when needed.
When are lifeguards on duty?
Lifeguards are on duty typically from May-September, with full coverage in June-August.
