Swimming and Racquet Club (2 blocks away).  From a news article:
Officials at the Walden Glen Swim & Racquet Club in Springfield, VA., have lowered the one-time initial membership fee from $550 to $1.  Annual dues for member families then cost an additional $250.  “It has worked reasonably well for us,” says membership director Bob Bell.  “We have people who drive by other pools to come to ours.”  Still, Bell says, the pool is barely scraping by.
