Happy 4th of July!
Whether you are celebrating at the pool or you are away this weekend, we hope you have a fun and safe holiday! There will be no team practices or lessons on Monday. We will be open from 12pm-8pm.
We had a great first week of kids and adult activities! The CPL will be back on Tuesday at 11 am with their pop-up library! Join us up at the clubhouse for storytime at 11am.
Arts and Crafts will be happening on the days we have lessons (Monday-Thursday). Join us from 10am-1pm!
Our first swim meet will be on Wednesday! Lessons will be held, but there will no swim practices. The diving team will have their meet during their practice time. The pool will close at 2:30 pm and will not reopen until the meet ends around 6/6:30pm.
We have our first meet this week! On Wednesday, we will be hosting ANA (Andover/North Andover YMCA). Please be ready to warm-up at 3 pm; the meet will start at 3:30pm. For newbies, we will have a table on the pool deck by the blockhouse to help with reading the line-up and other questions you may have! ANA is usually a smaller team, so this is a good first meet. IF YOUR SWIMMER CANNOT MAKE THE MEET, NOTIFY COACH CRAIG ASAP by completing the attendance form. Divers will run their meet during practice.
Thank you for those members who have already signed up to volunteer! You rock! In order to run a swim meet, we need many parent volunteers. We ask that each family tries to volunteer a minimum of two times if their child participates on the swim team. Click here to volunteer!
Coach Dave and his crew had a super first week on our new courts! They are looking forward to this week! B Team will have practice on Friday from 11-12. The B Team will also have a match at Chelmsford Swim and Tennis Club at 1pm on Friday.

We have partnered with SwimOutlet.com for our 2022 Swim & Tennis team gear. Gear is not required to participate on the teams or during team events, but it is a fun way to support the club. Purchases can be made: https://www.swimoutlet.com/russellmill/ and prices vary based on swim outlet deals.
What a fun first week! We really enjoyed sharing the courts and the pool with some new friends! For those who would like to join us this week on the courts, we will have Coffee and Tennis on Wednesday from 7-8 am, adult tennis and social on Thursday 7-9:30pm, and adult pickleball (all levels) on Friday 9-10am. This week in the pool, we will have adult practices on Tuesday and Thursday from 7-8pm and on Saturday from 10-11am. We have had some really good feedback, so if you are thinking about it- just show up- you will love it!
On Thursdays evenings, Coach Dave will be available to teach the game (tennis and/or pickleball) to those who are new to the sport while our more experienced members pick up some matches. All ability levels welcome! Afterwards, we will have a BYOB and BYOsnacks on our deck for players, swimmers, or spectators! This should be a fun time!
Season Hours – Mon-Fri 12:00-8:00 pm Saturday & Sunday 11:00am – 8:00pm.
Entering and Exiting the Club – This cannot be stressed enough. The driveway closest to the clubhouse is the entrance. The driveway closest to the dumpster is the exit. Please inform your guests of this before their arrival.
Check-In Location – upon entering the club your family needs to check in with the greeter. If you have guests there is a $10 per guest fee. You can purchase the pass ahead of time online https://russellmill.com/product/guest-pass-online/. Please be prepared to provide the greeter with the names of the members checking in daily.
Glass – Glass is not allowed on the pool deck. We have plastic cups in the office if you forget yours. Broken glass that gets in the pool is a serious situation that at minimum results in closure of the pool for multiple hours to ensure proper removal.
Trash – Please help us keep the club clean. Please take a moment to scan your tables, under your chairs etc. for trash before you leave.
