A group playing tennis on the Clark University tennis courts called themselves “The Maywood Tennis Group.” When Clark decided to build the Dolan Field House in 1968 (named after HTTC members Tom and Joan Dolan), the Maywood Tennis Group was asked to find a new place to play. That is when they began to look for a new location. The Israel brothers, Leonard and Martin, were planning to build a house on a parcel of land at 38 Brattle Street in Holden. Instead, they sold the land for use as a tennis club, and that was the beginning of Holden Towers.
In 2016 the club pursued a merger with the Worcester Tennis Club (WTC). WTC had decided to sell their Sever Street facility in Worcester and seek a new location. After reviewing numerous alternatives, the members of WTC voted to merge with HTTC. Using the proceeds from the sale of the WTC property to Becker College, HTTC built three additional courts for a total of nine courts. In addition, the deck that surrounded the clubhouse was expanded and rebuilt, and the locker room facilities were updated.
In 2018, HTTC has grown to 250 members and membership is open to new members. Visit the Join Us page to sign up. Feel free to call during the season (508-829-6378) and speak with Pro Kevin Dunlevy or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
