About the Royal Glenora Club:
The Royal Glenora Club is the family-oriented athletic and social club that people want to be a part of for life. We offer a complete approach to sports and wellness in addition to providing a lifestyle that no other club can match. Life is richer at the Royal Glenora Club — join us and find your life enriched.
In 1961, three clubs—the Glenora Skating and Tennis Club, the Braemar Badminton Club, and the Royal Curling Club—joined together to become the Royal Glenora Club (RGC). Since then, we have been dedicated to enriching our Members' lives. RGC is situated in the North Saskatchewan River valley, easily accessible from anywhere in Edmonton. Inside you will find a safe family environment, a welcoming community atmosphere, and a level of personalized service that can only be found in a private club. We offer a wide range of programs and activities. Our thriving recreational and competitive athletics include fitness, skating, racquet sports, aquatics, and gymnastics for Members of all ages. 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.
