120th SF Open returns to Golden Gate Park
The historic SF Open is returning to Golden Gate Park during Labor Day weekend, September 3-6, 2021. This year's Championships -- the 120th anniversary of the tournament -- will for the first time in decades, offer a purse to attract top women and men college players, emerging and past professionals, as well as recreational players.
As one of the oldest tennis competitions in America, the SF Open has been a prestigious star in the constellation of Bay Area adult tennis tournaments. It has been a favorite of local and regional players, several of whom went on to international fame such as Maurice McLoughlin and William Johnston. Later came Art Larsen, Tom Brown and Whitney Reed and women such as Alice Marble, Margaret Osborne (du Pont) and Rosemary Casals.
