Join Our Community!
The Somerset Recreation Club (SRC) is a family-oriented community club with an outdoor, four-lane swimming pool, water slide, toddler pool, and tennis court facilities. Everyone is welcome to join our Club,
and our members come from all over the Eastside. Our season memberships run from early May through Labor Day. We offer swim team and lessons, tennis team and lessons, fun social events for the whole family, and decks
and grills for our members’ enjoyment – whether you're having a small family dinner pool-side, a potluck with friends, or inviting guests to a party.
Our facility, perched high on a hill in the Somerset neighborhood of Bellevue, Washington, offers spectacular views of Lake Washington and downtown Seattle. But what truly makes our Club special is our old-fashioned, friendly, and welcoming atmosphere – a place where everyone feels at home, and lifetime friendships and summer memories are made.
A Long History of Building Community and Having Fun
In operation since 1963, the Somerset Recreation Club is a well-established social club on the Eastside. We are operated and maintained as a non-profit facility for the benefit of our members, and we remain one of the most affordable swim and recreation clubs on the Eastside.
The Club is administered by an all-volunteer Board of Directors elected by the general membership who, in addition to their regular duties, chair our swimming, tennis, membership, and social committees. The facility is staffed by a club manager, lifeguards, and coaches hired with the approval of the Board. Our Board members welcome hearing from you! To contact a Board member, please visit our Board of Directors page.
