Our Story


Established in 1968, Nansemond Swim Club is a members-owned and operated community pool tucked back in the quaint neighborhood of Eclipse, located in the Northern Suffolk, Virginia area. We are conveniently located to Carrollton, Portsmouth, and the Western Branch area of Chesapeake. As the main attraction, ours is an almost ’round’ pool with 6, 25 meter competition lanes in the center, a 12 foot deep end including a diving board, a shallow end and a fenced-in toddler pool. Surrounding the pool is ample deck space for sunbathing. Our members also enjoy the garden-like setting with swings and a wooden play-set with a slide plus a sand volleyball court. Nansemond Swim Club has two large covered pavilions and one small one with picnic tables, ideal for hosting pool parties and social events. “Sharky’s Reef” snack bar offers food and drinks for purchase just inside the main gate and our club house has two clean and spacious changing rooms with showers. The Nansemond Sharks swim team calls our pool “home,” and we offer private and group swim lessons. Nansemond Swim Club takes pride in being a clean and safe community pool with excellent management and a friendly lifeguard staff.
