Rama's Mission and Purpose
At Rama Swim and Racquet Club, our mission is to foster a fun and family-friendly environment that nurtures a strong sense of community. We are committed to creating a space that encourages physical activity, social interaction, and unforgettable memories. Through our diverse range of activities and events, we aim to promote family bonding and inclusivity. Our dedication lies in providing a safe and engaging recreational hub that unites member families and individuals, one splash at a time.

Rama Swim Club was created way back in March of 1965, and is a private, members-only club, designed to provide recreational and social opportunities to its members. Rama is governed by a Board of Directors (all volunteers!) and managed by a professional pool management company. To reach out, please click on “CONTACT” on the top right of the page, or email ramaswimclub@gmail.com
Rama offers an L-shaped, competition-sized pool, with an 11' deep well and 2 diving boards. We keep a dedicated lap lane during pool season, with sundeck and shaded sitting areas, on one of the largest pool decks in the county.
NEW in 2024: a brand new zero entry baby pool, fully fenced and shaded!
In late spring, we have a fun and active kids' swim team, from ages 5 to 18 (Queen City Summer League).

For our Racquet fans, we have three tennis courts, six pickleball courts, and we offer Clinics, Lessons and Leagues in partnership with Charlotte City Tennis. We offer kids' tennis camps throughout the summer for ages 6 - 18.

Looking for some court play? We have the one of the only PRIVATE sand volleyball courts in Charlotte, with two lighted sand volleyball courts, active leagues, regular pick-up games, and tournaments.
