ABOUT US

We’ve got your game! No matter your level, from eager beginner to seasoned player, we deliver one of Colorado’s most comprehensive tennis experiences for your skill enhancement and enjoyment. We offer tennis coaching in Boulder from individualized lessons to group clinics. Find yourself on the court in competitive leagues, exciting tournaments, and club community socials.

Our mission from the beginning has been to introduce you to a life-long rewarding relationship to tennis. No matter age or ability, whether running on the court or playing from a wheelchair, we are committed to enhancing your game in ways that will completely surpass your expectations!

Tennis has been played on our courts since 1977. Rocky Mountain Tennis Center (RMTC) assumed management of the Harvest House Tennis Club in May, 2012. We have experienced a vibrant history of expansion, enhanced services, and increased quality in facilities and programming for our club members under the dynamic leadership of our Founders: Duke Paluch, Executive Director; Donna Chitambar, Director of Operations; and Kendall Chitambar, Director of Tennis. In addition to the rewards of club membership, our clients have benefited from both the convenience of the proximity to the Millennium Hotel and the beauty of Boulder Creek’s running waters nearby. Play the game! Join the club!
