Membership

  • View Ridge Swim & Tennis Club is a member-owned club, limited by our by-laws to 480 family memberships. There are currently 480 active members.
  • To join the club, a member must live within the boundaries:
      • North: N. 110th Street
      • South: Ship Canal
      • East: Lake Washington
      • West: 25th N.E.
  • The main operating hours of the club (the pool, clubhouse and grounds) begin in mid-May through early September. The tennis courts are accessible year-round but the courts are not regularly maintained after the main operating months. Currently, the initial membership joining fee is $7650. This fee changes annually. All equity will be refunded with the sale of the membership.
  • Current yearly membership fees are summarized as follows, and are subject to change each year:
    • Annual dues are $850.
    • Annual capital improvement fee of $500. 50% of your capital improvement fee is refunded with the sale of your membership. Additional fees are assessed based on each family’s usage of the club’s benefits (i.e. swim team, tennis team, lessons and clinics, events, etc.).
    • At the present time, there is a waiting list of over 1,000 families. The number of new members varies from year to year, so it is not possible to accurately predict how long it might take to become a member. The club is always interested in bringing in new members – new members add to the vitality of the club. However, we are restricted by capacity, the club’s Bylaws, and Articles of Incorporation. New members in 2017 waited an average of 12 years before being offered a membership.
    • If you are interested in being placed on the waiting list, there is a one-time non refundable fee of $100. Please complete the Membership Waiting List Form and mail your payment to the stated address. Your canceled check is your receipt, please keep it for your records. The waiting list is updated a few times each year on this website. Wait list spots are not transferable.
  • You are responsible for updating the club if your email address(es), phone number(s) or mailing address should change.  If we are unable to contact you, you will be skipped and/or dropped from the waiting list. Please send updates to membership@vrstc.org
  • Summer 2018 update: We have sold our available club memberships for the year and will be posting a new list here in June after we edit for changes. A final postcard mailing will be sent this summer directing wait listers to this page. Please bookmark to check for updates!
