The Raleigh Sports Club continues to experience phenomenal membership growth and a rising community awareness. By continuing to recognize both high school and college athletic environments the RSC continues its long tradition for competing teams and fans alike to find common ground of athletic and academic achievement in our future generations.
Originally established as a local sports club with 12 original members, the RSC has grown to over 300 members with weekly Wednesday luncheon meetings where they have the opportunity to listen to some of the most influential college and professional sporting figures first hand while recognizing athletic and academic achievement on a number of different levels.

Hear Riveting Stories
At the Raleigh Sports Club we bring our members a wide and very impressive variety of speakers to our weekly meetings. On any given week, you could hear from the head coach of a NCAA champion basketball team, a member of baseball’s Hall of Fame, or the receiver who made the winning catch.
Student Athlete Of The Week
The RSC honors local high school student athletes for their achievements on the field, in the classroom and in the community.
The RSC has a wonderful southern style buffet. Long lines form to get some of the best food and hear some of the most prominent sports speakers in the country. Get there early to get a good seat.
