The Hanarry Estates Swim and Racquet Club (HSRC) is a thriving swim and tennis community located in Lilburn, Georgia. The deep-rooted tradition of HSRC is to focus on fun, family, and community. With around 300 members, we rely on everyone to continue this tradition and keep the club lively. Along with a community of active members, the HSRC Board of Directors and Committee Chairpersons is comprised of dedicated neighborhood volunteers who work hard to ensure that the tradition of an active and family-focused neighborhood continues to flourish. In doing so, Hanarry Estates has remained a highly sought-after Lilburn neighborhood since the 1970s.
The Hanarry Estates Swim and Racquet Club (HSRC) is separately governed from the Hanarry Estates Homeowners Association (HEHA) and requires membership dues apart from the HEHA. However, the two organizations work hand-in-hand to keep Hanarry a vibrant community. Unlike the HEHA, membership in the HSRC is not limited to Hanarry Estates residents.
We invite you to keep in touch and up-to-date on all of the activities and notices within the club by joining our unofficial Facebook page, www.facebook.com/groups/hanarry. After a request to join, we will verify your membership and approve your request.
In May 1971, several neighbors from the Hanarry Estates Civic Club (now the Hanarry Estates Homeowners Assoc.) were meeting in a private home and decided a larger community club was needed. Some of these people were: Charlie Trettel, Nick Kahle, Marty Grant, Lou Sadler, Larry Duke, and Bob Boring. This core five and others went door to door selling memberships. Early meetings were held at Camp Creek Elementary and later at Knight Elementary. One hundred and sixty memberships had to be sold before construction could begin; it was quite an undertaking. The hard work of our founders paid off — we will soon be celebrating 50 years!
Opening day for the Hanarry Swim and Racquet Club was Memorial Day weekend 1972. The first annual Memorial Day “Pig Pickin” was held in 1978, and is still one of our biggest events of the year. HSRC had a tennis ladder back as early as 1974 and had some of the first teams in the Atlanta Lawn Tennis Association (ALTA) that started in the early 1970s. The first swim team was organized by Art Smith and coached by Audrey Hardin during the summer of 1973. Our Hanarry Hurricanes swim team is a charter member of the Gwinnett County Swim League and still very active to this day with over 100 swimmers, ages 4-18.

What are the annual dues?
The annual dues, after the joining year, are $425.00, running from January 1 through December 31. If you complete a 3-hour HSRC workday assessment, you can earn a $50 reimbursement, which essentially brings dues to $375 annually.
Can I opt out of dues payment on an annual basis?
No. For proper financial budgeting and management reasons, the dues are owed annually once the bond is purchased. You can sell your membership if you decide to no longer be a member.
How much is the membership bond and what is its purpose?
The membership bond is $400.00 and is a one-time event when a membership is purchased. Since the club was originally formed May 30, 1972, HSRC has used proceeds from bonds to help fund normal obligations to run the club on a day-to-day basis. The bond is refundable, see below.
Is the bond refundable?
As long as your membership is in good standing (meaning you are current with your dues) when your membership sells, you will receive your bond back in full (less any late fees, if applicable).
What if I join HSRC after January 1?
For new members, dues are $375 instead of $425 (we waive the annual $50 workday fee the joining year). If joining after January 1st, dues are prorated, rolling to the first day of the next month (Example: If you join on March 10th, we would calculate your dues starting April 1st). With that, a 12-month new-membership cost is $31.25 per month, so take that monthly cost and multiply it by the amount of months you have to pay. In the March/April example used above, you would pay for 8 of the 12 months in the calendar year (April 1 to Dec. 31): $31.25 x 9 = $281.25 plus the one-time payment of the $400 bond. More simply put, dues are prorated from the month you purchase until the end of the year, if you join in March, you will pay 9/12 of $375 for that year.
What happens if I sell my membership mid-year?
When someone buys your membership, they are responsible for the dues at the time they buy it until the end of the calendar year. You are responsible for the dues up to the point the membership is sold. For example, if someone buys your membership effective July 1 (or 50% of the calendar year), then they would pay $400 (their bond) + $187.50 (50% of $375 annual dues). If you are current with the membership, you would get a full refund of $400 (your bond) + 187.50 (the other 50%). If you have not paid the dues for the calendar year, you will have the $187.50 you owed taken out of your bond + whatever late fees have accrued, the remainder of the bond is the returned to you.
What would I pay the following year after joining?
Dues invoices are sent in January and the invoice amount would be $425 (due date of March 15th). This consists of $375 for the annual dues + $50 workday assessment. If you complete a 3-hour workday assessment, you may request a reimbursement check for $50.
How do I sell my membership?
It is on a first-in, first-out basis, based upon the date the “Request to Sell” (RTS) online form is received by the Membership Chair. Once this signed request is received, you are added to the RTS list. As a new member joins the club, their new membership replaces the membership that is first on the RTS list. The next member on the RTS list then moves up to the first spot on the RTS list. Once a membership is replaced, the selling membership is notified and released of its obligation to HSRC.
What if I find a buyer for my membership by myself?
If you want to sell your membership and find a buyer through your own efforts (not through the HSRC Request To Sell list), the “first-in, first-out” method through HSRC does not apply. Essentially, you go to the “head-of-the-line”. Please contact a membership committee member to follow through with this type of transaction.
If I sell my house, can I transfer my membership?
Yes. Just use the “Change of Information” form online to denote the new membership owner and date of transfer. The new owner must fill out a membership form so we have their family contact information.
Is membership limited to Hanarry Estates residents?
Not at all! Due to the amount of requests, club membership is open to out-of-neighborhood residents.
