Washington Park Tennis Club (WPTC) is a public adult tennis club. Founded in May 1965, the club is based out of the south courts of Washington Park in Denver, Colorado.
Our Board of Directors volunteer their time to oversee the operations of the club.
The Board is elected by the officers, and holds monthly Board meetings which are open to members. To find out the date, time and location of a Board meeting, email Gordon Rulon, President.
Wash Park Tennis Club Celebrates 50 Years!
The summer of 2015 was special for the club as it recognized its 50th year of existence. In honor of the occasion, the board commissioned a local author to research and document the history of the club through news stories, library archives and old club documents. We hope you'll see that being part of Wash Park Tennis Club is much more than league play!
The Early Years
The first club roster was made up of seven women and fifteen men and was printed on a single sheet of notebook paper. At that time there was no board of directors and no club officers. In 1966, Darrel Reed was elected President and the club grew to 44 members.
By 1973, the club had 280 members, but only six courts. The first annual Mountain Tennis Weekend Trip was planned that year and 40 members, chosen by their ladder standings, attended the weekend. Today there are seven courts and WPTC keeps them busy with leagues, summer social events, and two annual tournaments.
No matter a person's tennis ability or level, Wash Park Tennis Club IS dedicated to providing our members with a variety of opportunities to have fun playing tennis.
