Lakeside Swim & Racquet Club offers its members excellent swimming opportunities through its 3 pools:
- a 25 yard recreation pool that has a 9 foot diving area with 2 low diving boards, and a swimming lane line for member relaxation swimming
- a 25 meter competition pool, with a 12 foot diving area with 2 low diving boards, and 6 lanes used for the competitive Hurricanes swimming team in competition with other swim clubs from the James River Aquatic Club league
- a 500 square foot wading pool devoted to the smallest of youngsters (through age 5) for their water pleasure; a water spout was added to the pool for summer 2021 and thereafter
Throughout the summer season, there is a schedule of devoted periods during the day when adults have dedicated use of the competition pool without interruption from younger swimmers (Adult-Only Swim Times).
Please Note: The competition pool is closed to members' swimming during swim team practice; during the three home competitive swim meets, both the recreation and the competition pools are closed to members.
