Our History


Nomahegan Swim Club was established in July of 1962, when a group of families got together and purchased thirteen acres of land. The construction of the pool was financed by second mortgages taken out by the members of the First Board of Governors on their homes. Initially, approximately three hundred families joined the club.

The pool was built by Sylvan Pools. At the time, it was the largest poured concrete pool in the world. It won a First-Place architectural design award and was featured in Life Magazine. The late William R. Kennedy, an Engineer, was presented a National Gold Medal for Design Excellence by Nomahegan in 1962.

Since its inception, Nomahegan Swim Club has placed a strong emphasis on its swimming and tennis programs. It continues to offer free swim and tennis lessons for children and has strong competitive swim and dive teams.

Nomahegan’s tennis program offers free twice-daily tennis drills for all levels, including adults and children ages 5+.

At the present time, there are almost five hundred families that are members of the club. In addition to swimming/diving and tennis, Nomahegan Swim Club has a calendar full of social activities for families, daily arts and crafts and sports & recreation programs for kids, and an onsite cafe for Nomahegan members and guests.
