About Us

Main content start

Our website is accessible to the public; however, we operate as a members-only club. SCRA is specifically designed for families of faculty and senior staff at Stanford University.

Step into the welcoming embrace of the Stanford Campus Recreation Association (SCRA), your haven nestled in the heart of Stanford's residential campus. Open exclusively to faculty, senior staff, and their families, SCRA embodies values of sportsmanship, community, recreation, and athletics, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for everyone.

Our facilities include a serene clubhouse, locker rooms, and two barbecue areas with patio furniture. For younger members, there's a specially designed playground set for kids aged 5-12. Dive into our offerings with a 25-meter x 25-yard lap & recreational pool, seven tennis courts (three lit for night play), and a squash court/hitting wall with a basketball hoop. SCRA is your destination for a vibrant community where enjoyment knows no bounds.


SCRA is a close-knit community hub for faculty and staff families to relax and enjoy quality time together.
