A number of our Members have even gone on to compete in World Championships and the Olympics. After a workout, Members can relax in the whirlpool or hot tubs, or book an appointment with our massage specialists for a deeper level of relaxation. Other Member services include locker registration, laundry service, child care, and access to any of our affiliate clubs while travelling in North America or overseas. Family brunch, business lunches, dinner with friends, or after-work drinks can be enjoyed in one of our dining rooms, on our indoor atrium pool patio, or on our front terrace overlooking the river during the warmer months. Members and members of the public can also host weddings and events in one of our many banquet rooms, with catering provided in-house. Our full social calendar helps Members to form relationships and build a sense of belonging through athletic tournaments, social events, and Clubs within the Club. Community, relaxation, and a healthier lifestyle for the whole family—RGC has it all.
