Take a virtual tour of the club
The club was formed by the merger of the Capital and Emerson Tennis Clubs. Thirty-four active members purchased the property from the widow of Mr. John Campion, a wealthy mine owner from Leadville, for the price of $1,365.00. Then President of the DTC, Mr. E. L. Griffey was instrumental in building the club into a leading tennis destination. His profession as a tailor was evidenced by his dress on the court of white flannel shorts and red suspenders. He was president for 23 years and an active player until 81 years of age. The Denver Tennis Club has continued to be an important club to the Colorado tennis community, hosting two of the premier tournaments in the Intermountain area. It has hosted the Denver City Open for decades and more recently added the Denver Junior City Open tennis tournament to its schedule. The club also hosts several USTA team championships and many players who compete in national and international tennis competitions.
The Denver Tennis Club has completed construction of a new clubhouse and pavilion and our courts have been resurfaced this year. We are very proud of our past and look forward to our bright future. We have a total of 12 courts that include 10 hard courts and 2 clay courts. Please stop by and visit our club and we hope you will consider joining us and becoming a part of our Denver Tennis Club family.
