Meet the Pool Board

The DGSRC Board is pleased to serve the members of the Club and meets on a monthly basis.  Interested in hearing what the Board has planned for the summer or information on past meetings?  Please email DGSRC@dgsrc.net for meeting notes or any other information.

William Wicklander

Pool Board President

We joined the pool about 5-6 years ago when our oldest daughter was 2. We compared all the pools in the area and felt DGSRC suits our family the best. We liked that the pool was a members only pool, family orientated, and not overwhelmingly crowded.



Rick Petersen

Pool Board Treasurer

This is our second time around at Downers Grove Swim and Racquet Club.  We were members in the 1990s while our kids were in elementary school and high school.  Now, our grandchildren are starting elementary school and we are back again!  We love the family atmosphere and are excited about all that is planned for the future.

We have been members of DGSRC for 5 years and have spent the majority of our summers since at the pool. We are active with swim team, tennis lessons, and spending our available free time at the pool. We joined for the convenience, activities and community. I joined the board to help preserve the unique DGSRC community experience and grow the club for current and future members.

Lindsay Garrity

Personnel Chair

I joined the DGSRC Board because I love our club! You can find my children and I with our friends at the pool every day! By getting involved I wanted to be part of the solution, helping to make positive changes. This year I hope to increase the communication within the club by introducing a monthly newsletter, increase our presence on social media and schedule more social and fun events for families!

Tennis Programming

Our family joined the pool 7 years ago and I started playing tennis 20+ years ago. I joined the Board to help grow the pool and, in particular, the tennis program.

Liz Lukes

Swim Team

I spent my summers growing up at the pool, and participating on swim and dive teams. I always enjoyed having fun with my friends at practice, and the excitement of the meets. The family friendships that I gained at the pool, have carried with me into adulthood. I am looking forward to continuing the positive and friendly atmosphere of the swim team. DGSRC has amazing coaches, and I am excited to work with them, to create great memories for our children, and their families. Fun facts- I am an elementary art teacher, and coach diving at DGS!

Anne Healy

Marketing Chair

My family has been members of the pool since 2011.  We joined simply out of convenience since so close to home, but we quickly realized how family-oriented the Club is as well as some of the great perks like never overcrowded, great tennis instruction, ability to bring in own food and more.  I am happy to be a new member of the Board and look forward to great things to come this summer.

Liz Rossi

Social Chair

Our family loves the Downers Grove Swim and Racquet Club! Four years ago I went to the pool as a guest and signed up after being there 1 hour. I love the size of the pool and how manageable it is, especially with little kids. The sense of community is great and my girls have a blast playing with all their friends at the pool. The swim and tennis lessons are amazing. I am thrilled to be a new member of the board and help continue the success of this incredible pool!

Grounds and Facilities

We have been members of the pool since 1986.  Our children have always enjoyed the pool and our grandchildren as well.  A great family destination.

Rachael Weninger

Swim Lesson Coordinator

Our family joined the pool a few years ago, and we love the DGSRC! We've made so many friends at the pool and had lots of fun with swim lessons, swim team and tennis lessons. DGSRC is the perfect place to spend summer days with friends and family!
