Tip: New tennis museum in Klosters

Klosters has a long tradition of tournament tennis. No wonder, then, that Switzerland's first museum dedicated to the sport is opening in Klosters.

Hans Markutt has created a 180 square metre tennis museum in the centre of Klosters. An exhibition with two focal points: The history of tennis and what influence tennis has had on the holiday resort. ‘Alongside Gstaad, Klosters has the longest continuous tournament history in Switzerland,’ says the museum's founder. 100 years of tennis tournaments in Klosters should therefore not pass by unnoticed by holiday guests and locals, but are the subject of the museum - in German and English.

From collector to museum founder
In addition to the history of tennis, a collection of 800 rackets forms the centrepiece of the museum - 200 of which are currently on display. The oldest dates back to 1883 and documents how rackets have changed. Also on display are racket presses, a stringing machine from 1930, rackets from famous tennis stars and other rarities. Behind all this lies the passion for collecting and fascination with tennis of the 67-year-old founder of the museum.

Opening hours and prices
Markutt has been involved in the organisation of tournaments in Klosters for over 40 years and also guides visitors through the tennis museum himself if desired. The exhibition in the post office building is open every Sunday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and admission costs CHF 10 for adults and CHF 5 for senior citizens. Admission is free for children and young people up to the age of 16.
