The Golden Gate Park Tennis Center has a remarkable history.
Now it’s time to think about the future.
Thank you for your interest in supporting the Campaign for Golden Gate Park Tennis Center! The gift you make today will be matched dollar-for-dollar thanks to a generous challenge grant from Taube Philanthropies.
We've already raised over $22 of the $27 million needed to renovate the 124-year-old “Cradle of Champions” and make it one of the best public tennis facilities in the nation.
The New Center
The future home of the Lisa & Douglas Goldman Tennis Center will include a new, expanded clubhouse and 17 new courts that meet current U.S. Tennis Association standards. It will also include a dedicated classroom and support spaces to accommodate an expansion of the RPD’s youth development program, the Tennis and Learning Center (TLC), which pairs tennis lessons with tutoring for students from underserved communities.
Some of the tennis world’s brightest stars started out or honed their games on the Golden Gate Park tennis courts, including Hall of Famers Billie Jean King, Rosie Casals, Brad Gilbert, Dick Gould and Peanut Louie Harper, all of whom are vocal supporters of the renovation.
Let the Games Begin!
Thank you for making the Party for Golden Gate Park Tennis Center on September 8th such a success! It was a great community celebration for a beloved and historic public resource. We enjoyed fun tennis activities on the courts as well as a Watch Party of the US Open Women’s Final broadcast live on a big screen -- see photos from the event.
