The Paseo Club opened twenty years ago as a tennis club. The tennis side grew with drills, leagues, comps, and fundraisers. Fitness and pickleball facilities soon followed, and now the club is a full-service private social club with tennis and pickleball courts, over 60 fitness classes taught every week, and a junior Olympic pool.
If you are looking to relax after a rigorous tennis game, come grab a beer at the clubhouse, a bite to eat at the cafe or treat yourself to a massage at the spa.
