Seattle Tennis Club

Wednesday, July 6, 2016 | All Events (see all)

This is a MEMBERS-ONLY event; pre-registration is required.

Put on your “whites” and step onto the grounds of the prestigious Seattle Tennis Club for this wonderful summer event. Its beginnings as the Olympic Tennis Club were modest, with First Hill courts and a viewing stand at Madison Street and Minor Avenue east of the Van Buren Stacy residence in 1890. But all that changed with the purchase of the Firloch Canoe Club property on Lake Washington in 1919, which allowed for expansion and responded to the move of well-to-do families away from First Hill to north Capitol Hill, Denny Blaine, and Washington Park. Seattle Tennis Club has added more property and undergone expansions in its buildings and courts since that time.

We will gather in the elegant Club Ballroom for a beautifully prepared buffet dinner. Respected Seattle historian, author, and columnist Junius Rochester will talk about the colorful history of the Club, and staff will lead us on tours of the Clubhouse and grounds. There is nothing quite as beautiful as being on the North Lawn looking out over Lake Washington to the Cascade Range and Mt. Rainier on a summer evening.
