The Role of the Tennis Coalition SF at the GTC

We launched the Tennis Coalition SF to strengthen public tennis in San Francisco with our signature project: the Campaign for Golden Gate Park Tennis Center. In partnership with SF Rec & Park and the SF Parks Alliance, we succeeded in raising $27 million to build a beautiful, state-of-the-art public tennis center that is accessible and affordable to all. We are thrilled that the Lisa + Douglas Goldman Tennis Center opened to the public on March 3, 2021.

With the Goldman Tennis Center (GTC) open, the Tennis Coalition SF will focus on three major areas:

  • Successfully launching the GTC as the hub of public tennis in San Francisco
  • Spotlighting youth tennis at the GTC
  • Stewarding and protecting public tennis in San Francisco

The Tennis & Learning Center (TLC) program

SF Rec & Park’s TLC program provides academic support and tennis instruction after school and in the summer to students from underserved neighborhoods in San Francisco. With the renovation of the Golden Gate Park Tennis Center, students who advance from TLC’s elementary school program can now come to Golden Gate Park as middle schoolers.

TLC students will study and have access to academic enrichment services in a dedicated classroom and will have the opportunity to improve their tennis skills on the brand new courts and study in the outdoor garden area.
