Swim Clinics

MRSC offers competitive swim clinics to not only help athletes refine and improve their strokes, turns and starts, but to also learn and understand the fundamentals of how to effectively move through the water.

Is there babysitting at MRSC?

We do not offer child care services but we have many tennis, swim and summer programs for kids ages four and up.

How do I book a tennis court?

To reserve a court, please call the club at 203-245-9444 up to one week in advance and we will gladly assist you. No membership required!

We also offer season court time and league play. To get on the list or reserve your weekly time please email us at mrsc@madisonracquet.com.


Do I have to be a member to participate in programs?

No membership is required at MRSC. We do offer memberships for those who play or swim frequently. Our members receive 15% or more off clinics and swim teams and 10% off private lessons. Lap lanes and open court times are priced for non-members.  

How do I know my child's level for swim lessons or tennis clinics?

Descriptions of all our junior classes are listed online and in our program guides, which are linked on our homepage.

If you are not sure which level your child falls into based on the description, please call the front desk at 203-245-9444 for more information. We may need to set up a complimentary evaluation with a tennis professional or swim coach to best assess. 

Can I request a tennis or swim instructor for my child?

We cannot guarantee a particular instructor for group tennis & swim lessons, as the Aquatic & Tennis Staff schedules change from time to time. We will, however, work with you to schedule private lessons based on the availability of the instructor and pool and court time.

We encourage you to bring your friends to the club! Please register your guest upon arrival and fill out a guest waiver form. If your friends are interested in joining the club, have them call us at 203-245-9444 and we will arrange a tour of the club.
