The Seattle Tennis Club is an athletic facility along Lake Washington, between Washington Park and Madison Park. On McGilvra Boulevard East, the club consists of 19 courts spread across about 8 acres of lakeside property. Included in their 19 courts are 6 indoor courts (ideal for Washington weather) and 3 clay courts.
In 1890, The Olympic Tennis Club was founded on First Hill, but was changed to Seattle Tennis Club in 1896. At that time, tennis was quickly growing as a staple sport. The club quickly outgrew its original facility, where they then acquired the Firloch Canoe Club along the shores of Lake Washington – its current location.
Since its humble beginnings, the Seattle Tennis Club has flourished into a premier facility, built with beauty, practicality, and progression in mind. Their indoor/outdoor courts are a testament to their clientele.
In 1999, an $11.5 million renovation was completed, and then another $7 million in 2014. These renovations resulted in many additions and retrofits to the property, as well as making the facilty wheelchair accessible.
In addition to the tennis courts, the club offers a fitness center, squash courts, pickleball, dining rooms, banquet facilities (great for weddings or other gatherings), a pool, beachfront access, a boathouse, and Pro Shop. Their North Lawn is used for catering to large, outdoor weddings and events. Their breathtaking waterfront property makes this a destination for those wishing to take in the natural Northwest beauty.
