A Club for Former Athletes and Sports Enthusiasts
The Dayton Agonis Club in Dayton, OH was established in 1932 to bring together former athletes and known sports figures.
If you’ve wondered where our club’s name came from, let us enlighten you. Agon is the Greek word for contest. Agonis is the association of people for a contest. So we created the Dayton Agonis Club for broken down athletes of Dayton who have played in some of those contests.
We hold luncheons every Monday where local and nationally recognized personalities from various sports, talk about their experiences, teams and jobs. We have 2 annual Special Guest Night Meetings and an annual Awards Night Banquet honoring local and regional athletes from multiple disciplines, established in 1954. All meetings held at The Presidential Banquet Center in Kettering, OH.
