Biographical history

The Vancouver Lawn Tennis Club came into existence in 1897. Property was acquired in the West End on Barclay Street, between Denman and Bidwell, with grass courts, cinder courts and a croquet lawn. Land was purchased from the C.P.R. and in 1914 the club moved to the corner of Fir Street and West 16th Avenue, offering nine grass courts, four clay courts, and two croquet lawns. In 1928 badminton courts were added. The name of the club was changed to the Vancouver Lawn Tennis and Badminton Club. In 1947 the property was finally debt free. In 1956 the swimming pool was built. In 1957 the new clubhouse was opened at West 15th Avenue and Fir Street. In 1961 another addition containing squash courts was opened.
