Heritage - The Las Vegas Racquet Club

MR UsaAnn & John Miller's eyes met over the bar of a vintage soda shop when they were only in high school. They basked in the sun on the California beaches performing gymnastics stunts and body building techniques. John says that he invented the 6 pack abs! He won every body building competition that he entered begining when he was only 14 years old! 

They married in 1949 on Christmas Eve and quickly signed John up for the Olympics. Unfortunately, they couldn't afford to send him so he won Mr. America...not to shabby! They proceeded to have four gorgeous little girls and John was an engineer for the local Pamona fire department. 

Vintage Las VegasAfter visiting the Palm Springs Racquet Club, they purchased 22 acres and moved to Las Vegas in 1962 in hopes of creating a tennis oasis in the desert. They were shockingly successful from the beginning, quickly becoming know around the globe that the Las Vegas Racquet Club was the place to be when you were staying and performing in Vegas! 

The rat pack in las vegasThe gorgeous Miller couple hosted the most famous celebrities, politicians, and even mob bosses of their time for several decades! In the 80's, their daughter Christi watched as Tricia Nixon got married in the gardens of the White House. She was inspired by the fledgling Martha Stewart and told her parents that she was going to turn the facility into an exclusive wedding venue! We are now in our 50th year of hosting amazing events and hope to continue for many, many more generations to come!
