1901 - 1950

The Spokane Tennis Club, predecessor to the Spokane Racquet Club, was officially incorporated as a non-profit organization in September of 1950, though their unofficial activity and involvement in Spokane tennis dates back as far as 1901. With no tennis courts of their own, members played at city parks and hosted events and tournaments for the community.
