Welcome to the Oaklands Swim Club! 


The Oaklands Swim Club in downtown Newark, Delaware, is a member owned community pool and social club. Anyone can become a member! The club is open every day from Memorial Day through Labor Day, from noon to 9:00 pm (with a few exceptions - please see our pool hours page) and is staffed by knowledgeable pool managers, certified lifeguards, and certified pool operators.  Call us at (302) 366-8365 during pool hours.

The main pool consists of a 25-yard, 5-lane pool and a diving area. There's a separate kiddie pool, a full bath house, and several recreational and convenience amenities.

We are a very social club with a calendar of social events for both kids and adults.  Scheduled movie and raft nights, our annual luau, a camp out/sleepover, and band nights are just a few of the fun reasons to join our pool.  

The Oaklands Swim Team, a.k.a. The Slugs, is a member of the Suburban Swim League (SSL).  The Slugs include swimmers of all ages, abilities, and experience levels, and we have openings and opportunities for your swimmers!   

We would love to have your family join us and participate in pool, social, and swim team activities! Stop by the swim club to see it for yourself.
