WAC Flashback

Helene Madison Pool

This art deco oasis bears the name of former WAC member and three-time gold medal Olympian Helene Madison, who trained at the pool for the 1932 Olympics. An original fixture of the Club renamed to honor Madison in 1968, the pool has been home to synchronized swimming, apple bobbing, and even trout fishing. In honor of this summer’s Tokyo Games, suit up and take a dip in the pool that made our most successful Olympian great.

Preserving and enhancing Club history

Established in 1930 by members for members, the WAC has stood tall on the corner of Sixth and Union for nearly a century. We flourish here, in the heart of the city, thanks to the generations of members who have made the WAC a way of life. Continue this legacy with a charitable donation to the WAC Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to preserving and enhancing
the Clubhouse, and then watch your generous gift come to life through improvement projects that protect our historic Clubhouse.

**Find out how you can help preserve the Clubhouse with a donation to the WAC Foundation.**
