We are a 501(c)(7) social club within walking distance of Bells Mill Elementary School, Cabin John Middle School and McLean School. Neighborhood sidewalks make our pool safely accessible by foot or bike as well as by car. You’ll find that our members, activities, and facilities have something to offer everyone.

Check out our vibrant calendar of social events, swim team, swim lessons and tennis offerings that focus on community. From Early Bird Swim to Family Cookouts, we think you’ll agree that IRC is a great place to spend your summer. New memberships are available! And unlike nearby pools, we do not require a bond to maintain membership.

Meet the team!

    Our family has been a member since our son Lee was three; he’s in high school now. It’s so much fun watching our girls Sammy and Mimi compete at the swim meets. We also love just going to the pool to hang out, whether it’s for a social hour or just meeting friends for a pool cookout. It’s something we really look forward to when the winters are cold and long!

    By day, I’m an attorney, but during summer evenings and weekends, you’ll find me unwinding with my family at Inverness Recreation Club. Whether it is meeting up with friends at a Friday night social hour or the July 4 party, soaking up rays while reading a book, taking a dip in the pool to cool off, enjoying a family dinner in the covered picnic area, or cheering on our son in a swim team event, there is always something fun going on. Inverness Recreation Club is our family’s haven from the hot and hectic DC summers and I hope you will make it yours, as well.

    Its rich diverse community and friendly members make us look forward to joining the pool every year. My husband and I personally enjoy adult social Fridays, the boys enjoy their pep-rallies, meets, and raft nights. The entire family looks forward to the *all famous* 4th of July party!!! IRC is the place where our boys learned how to swim, and now it is exciting to see them compete for our swim team, our mighty Nessies. We are at home when we are at the IRC.

They represent the team as a member-at-large on the IRC Board of Directors, and also at the six business meetings held by the Montgomery County Swim League (MCSL) throughout the year. The A Reps hire the coaches and lead a team of volunteer parents to manage the Saturday meets, pep rallies, apparel, nessies.org website, and other team amenities and events. The A Reps work with the B Reps, coaches, and parents to keep the team running well so our kids can focus on swimming fast and having fun!

    IRC is our fun and relaxing place to be during the summer. Our children love the group of friends they have here, and we love that it keeps them active and outdoors enjoying nature and being social. I personally enjoy the Friday night adult social hours, the basketball courts and, without a doubt, the tennis courts.

    Finding one activity that appeals to all my kids, isn’t always easy– they range from Kindergarten to middle school. IRC is the perfect solution for my family– there is something for everyone, including myself! When I’m in the pool with my youngest, I can easily monitor what my other kids are doing, even if they are playing soccer, on the playground, and shooting hoops. IRC offers us an entire summer of safe, family-friendly, and healthy activities to enjoy together and with friends!

    When our family decided to join a neighborhood pool, we chose the one that we could easily walk or bike to. When we got here, we were delighted to find that so many of our friends from Georgetown Hill Early School and Bells Mill Elementary School were already members here. Our kids have grown from being transported along in the bike trailer so they could go splash in the baby pool to biking themselves to IRC after school to get to swim team practice. We’ve watched them overcome their fear of putting their faces in the water through lessons from patient and kind coaches and instructors in the community, to becoming confident and competent swimmers. They love their time outdoors at IRC, whether in the water, on the basketball court, on the playground equipment, or just running WALKING (no running allowed) to get ice cream or shaved ice from the ice cream truck.
