Eno Valley Swim & Racquet Club’s Response to COVID-19

Last updated June 26th, 2020

The Board met last night for one of the longest and most difficult meetings we have had to date. After much effort on our part and the part of our members, we simply did not get the number of memberships we needed in order to carry the costs of operating the pool this season and, therefore, we will not open for summer 2020.

The pool has been plagued with multiple critical repairs at enormous cost. The multiple costly repairs, coupled with the current pandemic, put the pool in a very unfortunate and financially difficult position.

The costs of operating the pool for a season are so substantial, that closing the pool is how we feel we can best financially preserve the pool for future seasons to come. All of us board members love the pool and wanted so badly to return with our families. We know this was the hope of many of our members as well. We thank everyone for your love of our pool, the assistance and hard work with trying to recruit members, and your understanding that this decision has caused us personal grief and heartbreak.

We will be in touch via email within the next few days about the timeline and details of the refund process. We hope to see you at Eno next year!

The Board of Directors



We will begin issuing refunds for previously paid 2020 dues in the coming days.  Members who paid for the 2020 season have the option of having the club hold those paid dues until next season to be applied against 2021 dues.  If you would like for your dues to be held against 2021, please email our Treasurer at [email protected]com by Friday, July 3rd.  As a reminder for new members who just applied and paid for the 2020 season, the application fee of $25 and membership fee of $1 are non-refundable.  However, the $25 application fee will be credited against 2021 dues when they are billed.

Our Treasurer will contact members whose checks have been received but not cashed to determine member-preferred processing.   Any applications and payments received or postmarked with a date of June 29th or after, will not be eligible for the discounted membership fee.
Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have.  Thank you and have a great summer.
