Dive Into Fun
For more than four decades, Guilford Racquet & Swim Club has brought friends and families together through great activities and organized programming.
Along with being an athletic club, we also offer a resort-like setting around the pool coupled with professional swim coaching and lessons in Guilford, CT.
Enjoy a cushioned lounge chair under an umbrella while enjoying your book! Come by for one of our poolside events and invite your friends for a day at the pool. We have a talented GRSC swim staff that teaches swimmers everything from the fundamentals for water safety through competition-level strokes.
We offer private swimming lessons for all ages, from infants to seniors holding Platinum membership. Private lessons can have up to four people. These lessons are made by appointment after the pool opens Memorial Day Weekend.

GRSC Day Camp will run for its 9th year of fully- licensed day camp during the summer of 2022. GRSC Day Camp is located at 420 Church Street in Guilford, on the grounds of Guilford Racquet & Swim club, across from the arts center and next to the police station. The property has an outdoor, solar- heated swimming pool, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, courts for both pickleball and paddle, an expensive new playground, gaga ball pit and four square court as well as an arts tent and cottage for cooling off.
GRSC Day Camp is for children, ages 4-12 and we have a low counselor: camper ratio. Campers are placed into age-based groups. We will try to put friends together if we are given advance notice, and if they are within the same age range.
Each week includes daily instructional tennis, pickleball, yoga, water time, a variety of group games, arts & crafts, playground time, DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) and SPECIAL EVENT FUN FRIDAYS, among other activities. GRSC Day Camp runs RAIN or SHINE!
In 2020 & 2021, we ran camp incorporating significant COVID safety protoctols and adjusting our plans to keep everyone active and safe.
Each child is in charge of their belongings. Please send your child to camp with the following in a bag they can carry independently:
- Bathing suit
- Non-glass refillable water bottle
- Tennis racquet
- Swim goggles
