It is no secret that swimming is a popular sport in the United States.
But swimming is no more popular than other physical activities, and swimming pools have been the subject of many lawsuits.
A lawsuit filed by an Illinois woman named Rebecca Haines against her own swimming pool company, the Chicago Swim Club, alleges that she was denied a pool card because her pool’s policy didn’t allow for swimming.
The suit was dismissed in August 2016.
The lawsuit, filed on behalf of Hain.
The Chicago Swim Clubs attorney, Paul Hockley, said in a statement that the company is “pleased” with the ruling and that the city will continue to offer pool cardholders the opportunity to access swimming pools in their communities.
Haines was able to swim her first pool-style pool with the help of the Chicago Pool Works, a private company based in New York City.
The company also offers swimming lessons and swim classes.
Hains says she was unable to use the pool’s swimming pool lessons because her policy prohibited swimming at the pool, the Associated Press reported.
Hain and her attorney were not able to contact the Chicago Club of Chicago, which runs the pool in her name.
Hainer’s attorney says that the swim lessons she did at the Chicago Swimming Club are for private use and that she has not received any payment from the club.
The lawsuit states that she would have been able to use her swimming lessons at a local pool but chose not to because of the swim classes’ private nature.
Hins pool-related injuries are rare, according to the Associated State News.
In fact, only six people have been hospitalized for pool-type injuries in the U.S. in the last two years, according the Associated Business Journals.
