Operating Procedures

Eno Valley Swim and Racquet Club will abide by all state and local guidelines related to COVID-19.  As health rules and guidelines are revised, the board of Directors and pool management will update our operating procedures as necessary.



  1. Members and their guests must follow all Eno Valley Swim and Racquet Club rules. If there are conflicts between the operating procedures/rules listed below and the standard pool rules, the rules listed below will supersede the standard pool rules.
  2. Daily pool operations, including decisions to clear or close the pool (or any other matter of member safety or wellbeing), is under the direct authority of the active manager on-site, or the certified pool operator without the undue influence or directive of any member, guest, or Member of the Board of Directors. Lifeguards are authorized and encouraged to communicate any and all concerns about operations or safety of the pool to the active manager on duty or other managers as they are available. The active manager on duty will consider all factors, including lifeguard input in making a determination on pool operations, safety, or closure.


Check in

  1. Members are required to check in at the sign-in tent each time they visit the pool. Please ensure any and all guests are appropriately registered upon check-in.
  2. Children aged 10 or higher may be dropped off at the pool, but the parent must come in to sign the child in and provide a contact number in case the pool must be shut down due to storms or emergency.  Parents may not leave a guest with children unattended.  


Pool Use

  1. There are tables and chairs at the pool for use by membership. Four (4) chairs will be placed at each table and are not to be moved from their location. Additional chairs are available under the covered shack area.  After a family leaves, the tables and chairs will be sanitized. Any family who wishes to bring their own pool chair, is more than welcome to do so.
  2. Bathrooms will be cleaned and sanitized at regular intervals. Antibacterial wipes will be available for members to wipe down surfaces after they touch them.
  3. The shack will offer various options based on the discretion of pool management and availability.
  4. The covered shack area will be for eating or limited breaks only. Members should not use the tables under the covered shack area to store their belongings.
  5. The clubhouse will be closed unless for limited exceptions (nursing mothers, medical necessity, etc.) and arrangements for use of the clubhouse in those exceptions shall be made with staff and/or management.  Any use of the ice machine in the clubhouse should be cleared with staff.
  6. Each member should bring their own personal water bottle or should be prepared to purchase a bottle of water from the shack. The pool will provide water for personal container use only.
  7. Lifeguards may, from time to time, and upon seeing that the number of persons in the pool exceeds safe numbers in excess of county guidelines, may clear the pool in order to reestablish safe numbers.


How Does the Waiting List and Membership Renewal Work?

Anyone wanting to join the pool will fill out an application and submit a $25 application fee.  This fee is nonrefundable, but will be applied to your first year dues.  There is an initiation fee that will be added to the first year membership dues.  After that, members just pay the annual membership dues.  In March, current members and Leave of Absence members will be invoiced to continue their membership.  Members have until April 1st to pay for the current season to guarrantee continued membership in good standing.  Sometime after April 1st, people on the waiting list are contacted to allow them to join the pool.  New members and returning members will be allowed in until the Eno membership cap has been reached.  At this point, any new applicants will be added to the waiting list for the next season.  Members who did not pay before the cap was reached, or have decided that they cannot make use of their pool membership this year will be added to the Leave of Absence. LOA means that the household is considered an inactive member and cannot use club facilities (except as a guest), but will not have to pay the initation fee to rejoin the next year.  A member can be on LOA for two years before being dropped from the membership roster.  If a member is on LOA1 or LOA2, then they will receive the option to join in March with a guaranteed admission.  Once the LOA has expired, any returning member will need to complete the new member applicant process again.
