NILE SWIM CLUB
More than 60 Years of Family & Fun
The Historic Nile Swim Club of Yeadon
The Nile Swim Club is a member owned and operated 501c3 non-profit corporation in Yeadon, PA. The Club was established in 1958 when two African American families applied for membership at the racially exclusive Yeadon Swim Club, located in the suburbs of Pennsylvania, and were denied. In response, Yeadon's African American community decided to build its own private swim club that welcomed all races. For 60 years the Nile Swim Club has provided the community with a safe place for families to enjoy the summer. In addition, the club provides swim facilities for day camps in the surrounding area, swim lessons for the community, teen splash parties for the youth, and other activities serving community members of all ages. The pool season runs from May -September.
