Racquet Club Ladue is an exclusive family club offering fine dining, social and competitive athletic programs, personalized special events, and exceptional service in a comfortable atmosphere where friendships are nurtured and fun is encouraged.”

A Brief History

From the start Racquet Club Ladue has been a unique institution, combining the highest standards of service and cuisine, with constant attention to the needs of its members.

A Proud Tradition dating back to the founding of Racquet Club St. Louis in 1906
Racquet Club Ladue was founded in 1978 by a group of members from Racquet Club St. Louis looking for a suburban club location and amenities to serve families.  From 1978 to 1997 Racquet Club St. Louis and Racquet Club Ladue were operated by a single Board overseeing both clubs. In 1997 Racquet Club Ladue created its own Board and has operated independently since then.  There is still a casual relationship between the clubs and a modest sharing of resources and reciprocal dining on the days they are closed.

A Haven from the Pressures of the 21st Century
Nestled in an exclusive suburban neighborhood, Racquet Club Ladue sets its pace from a more gracious era when standards were maintained and drinks came in full measure.  Here one may relax in the convivial company of friends after a quick set of tennis, or host a formal dinner with equal confidence that all is as it should be.  Racquet Club Ladue is truly a family oriented private Club, that offers something for every stage of life.
