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.
Having surpassed the $27 million mark in fundraising, a groundbreaking ceremony for the Golden Gate Park Tennis Center renovation was held on April 17, 2019. Construction is expected to take 16 to 18 months, with a grand opening of the renovated facility in Fall 2020.
THANK YOU to the hundreds of tennis and public recreation enthusiasts who have helped us get this far!
We are well on our way to reaching the $30 million needed to renovate the 124-year-old “Cradle of Champions” and make it one of the best public tennis facilities in the nation. We continue to raise funds to protect against construction uncertainties, to support important programs like TLC that will have a home at GGPTC, and get a jump start on the critical maintenance fund to preserve this wonderful asset for future generations.
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.

We've come a long way but...
We have $1.3 million left to raise for the Campaign for Golden Gate Park Tennis Center and need the help of all lovers of tennis and public recreation to close the gap.
Although we reached our groundbreaking milestone and construction has begun, we continue to work toward our $30M fundraising goal to provide critical funding for important programs like SF Rec & Park’s award-winning Tennis & Learning Center program, and get a jump start on the maintenance fund that will preserve this wonderful asset for future generations.
We’re on the cusp of creating one of the most iconic public tennis centers in the country. With your help, we can make this beautiful vision a reality and preserve the Golden Gate Park Tennis Center for future generations.
