The Orange Lawn Tennis Club was founded in 1880, only six years after lawn tennis was introduced into the United…More States. One of the founders, Richard Sears, was the first U.S. singles champion, and the club was one of 19 that banded together to form the U.S. Lawn Tennis Association (USLTA) to standardize the rules of the game.
Today club members enjoy 10 grass and 10 Har-Tru artificial courts, plus an elegant clubhouse dating back to 1848, all set in 16 acres of manicured property.
The club offers juniors tennis and tournament cycles as well as a pro shop, swimming pool, platform courts and lawn bowling. And when there is snow on the ground, that doesn't mean members can't find a place to swing a racket. The club sponsors platform tennis sessions throughout the winter months.
The club can also host special occasions including Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, wedding ceremonies, receptions and corporate events. In addition to banquet rooms for small parties and meetings, the club's ballroom accommodates up to 200 guests.
