The Marlboro Swim Club was a respite for many in summer, 2020.  This year, we will open on Memorial Day weekend and, in accordance with Department of Health and COVID guidelines, reservations will not be required and guests are welcome weekends, weekdays and holidays. Please see the FLYER for more.
