Our Story

Our goal is to provide expert service to the Western Washington badminton, racquetball, squash, and tennis playing communities, through comprehensive retail sales, performance coaching, and production of premier tennis tournaments.
Our flagship store in Seattle is the only tennis specialty shop in the city. We are one of Washington’s largest racquet dealerships, now with two stores.
Avanti Sports Seattle started at Forest Crest Tennis Club in 1984. Avanti Sports relocated to its present location in the Laurelhurst neighborhood in 1992. The Eastside shop moved to Mill Creek in January 2016. Items can be transferred without issue from either the Seattle or Mill Creek store.
