About the Pools
Wallingford Swim and Racquet Club has four pools for your swimming enjoyment.
Everyone in the family, from your baby to your teenager to mom, dad and grandparents has a pool to call home. Newborns and toddlers enjoy splashing in the large baby pool. Toddlers and elementary aged children can play and swim in what we call the “turtle” pool. This pool begins at just two feet deep and gradually slopes to a final depth of just three feet. The “L” pool starts at a four foot depth gradually sloping to five feet. It also includes a diving board and diving well that reaches ten feet in depth. The water slide is a favorite of kids and adults alike. Finally, the dedicated lap pool is a favorite amongst the adult members of the club. Every summer we challenge our members to swim 1,000 laps before Labor Day. Those who succeed are rewarded with a t-shirt.
Our swimming program includes free swim lessons for kids over three and a swim team.
About the Tennis
The four outdoor tennis courts and two Har-Tru courts are a popular place to be throughout the summer. Members are welcomed to join any of the free tennis clinics offered by our tennis pro. We have girl’s and boy’s junior tennis teams as well as several men’s and women’s tennis teams who compete locally throughout the spring and summer. All members of the club are also welcomed to play in the paddle tennis program that runs from September to March.
About the Grounds
The club grounds include a snack bar, basketball court, outdoor grills for use by our members at any time, a playground and ample space on the lawn for pick-up games of baseball, soccer and anything other games the kids come up with.
About the People
Social events throughout the summer bring the community together to have fun. The club organizes several picnics and barbeques throughout the summer as well as Kids Krazes and adult socials.
