The Raleigh Sports Club was originally established in 1964 as a local sports club with 12 members who loved sports and wanted to recognize athletic and academic achievement on several levels. The RSC has grown to over 300 members and holds weekly Wednesday luncheon meetings from September through March. Here members have the opportunity for some of the most influential college and professional sporting figures to speak to us first hand. A local high school student athlete is honored at the weekly meetings. In the spring, at the Annual Banquet, multiple scholarships are awarded to deserving student athletes who do not receive athletic scholarships. The Club also recognizes a high school coach/mentor with a Distinguished Service Award. These awards are coordinated through Athletic Directors at Wake County High Schools.
The weekly Wednesday meetings are held in Bradley Hall at Highland United Methodist Church, 1901 Ridge Rd., Raleigh, at the corner of Lake Boone Trail, just inside the I-440 Beltline. The meeting is from Noon to 1:00 pm, but the buffet lines open to our delicious Southern Buffet at 11:30 am. Join us for good food, good fellowship, and a lot of sports talk!!
