How we differ from other clubs

We don't judge you on your skill, but by how much fun you're having.

Clay Courts

Watertown Tennis Club is the oldest continually operating clay court club in Connecticut. With newly installed clay courts and net posts, we plan on being around for many more years to come.

All Ages And Skill Sets

We have members of all ages and skillsets. Beginners and Advanced members have access to our club Pro to either learn the basics or develope the finer nuances of their game.

Minimal Membership Fees

We are a non-profit and do our best to keep membership fees down so we can be accessible to everyone. Much of these costs are offset by club sponsored fundraisers.

Social Events

We hold many social events throughout the season. The money we raise is put into the upkeep of the club grounds and courts. This helps offset membership fees so we can maintain a large membership.

Our History

The Watertown Tennis Club is a part of Watertown’s history and an ongoing community recreational resource for the Greater Watertown area.  The Club was founded in 1908 as the Watertown Lawn Club by a number of tennis enthusiasts including members of the Heminway, Chase and Merriman families.  They leased a lot of land on the corner of Warren Way and North Streets and laid out three courts described in the 1950s Watertown history as “dirt surfaced.”  

Today the club’s three clay courts are the oldest in the state of Connecticut.  The club is located in the town of Watertown’s designated state and federally designated historic district.  In 1938 the club purchased additional land and built the historic clubhouse building that stands today. The building is described in the Historic District reports as an elegant, well-proportioned shingle style structure.

The club has always had a range of members from youth to seniors and offers opportunities for play for players ranging from beginner to advanced.  In the mid-1950s tournaments brought top U.S. players such as Bobby Riggs and Bill Tilden to the club. Today the Club continues as a community resource for players of all ages and skills.

The Club is recognized by the IRS as a 501 (c) (7) tax exempt non-profit recreational club and the Club’s operation is totally funded by member dues and special events.  At present the club has about 50 members and membership is open to the community at large.
