Welcome to Raintree Swim & Racquet Club. If you haven't seen the club in a while, please stop by for a visit to see all our latest club upgrades.  

We are very proud to have been named the:

2011 USTA Mid Atlantic Virginia Club of the Year

Raintree has earned a distinctive reputation in the Richmond area as being one of the best. Raintree members are accustomed to quality programs, instruction and training.

When it comes to providing the best in recreation, we remain unmatched. Raintree Swim and Racquet Club was designed to offer its members a full-range of leisure and recreational activities all year long. Providing our members with the best facilities and instructors the Richmond area has to offer has become our tradition.

It takes years of hard work and perseverance to get to the top. Ask any athlete.  Raintree Swim and Racquet Club started serving members in 1974 and we have been working hard at it ever since.  

That's what makes us different, that's what makes us a Richmond tradition.
