As it does for so many others in the community, the Olympic Swim Club means a great deal to us. Our family built the pool in 1938, and three generations have owned and lovingly operated it ever since. We are looking forward to opening day on May 24, 2014 and anticipate another fun-filled summer. Sadly however, this will be our last.
The decision to cease operations following this season was a very difficult one. We understand the role Olympic has played in the life of the community, but we must run it as a business. Sadly, with the passing of our grandparents, it is no longer a viable one.
Because we are committed to the Clintonville area, the property will remain in the Zimmerman family. The next chapter for the site has yet to be finalized. We can assure you, however, that we will work diligently to ensure that we continue to honor Olympic's legacy and bring vitality to the community. As for the adjacent Olympic Indoor Tennis, it continues to thrive as Columbus' favorite indoor tennis club.
In the meantime, please join us at the pool this summer. Early bird memberships are available through May 23. We are counting on Clintonville to make it our best summer yet.
