The Goldman Tennis Center Receives National Award

The Lisa and Douglas Goldman Tennis Center, located in Golden Gate Park, has been selected by the United States Tennis Association to receive the 2023 Outstanding Facility Award, one of 29 facilities nationwide to earn this year’s award. Among the winners, the Goldman Tennis Center was the only facility this year to earn the prestigious “Featured Facility of the Year” designation and was honored today at an awards ceremony during the opening day of the US Open in New York City.


Each year, the USTA recognizes facilities across the country for their ability to go above and beyond in serving tennis communities. For the award, the USTA considered criteria such as overall layout; the quality of court surfaces and lights; maintenance; aesthetics; accommodations for players, spectators, and press; graphics like signage and landscaping; amenities; and participation in USTA programs.


“Receiving this coveted prize highlights all the hard work put in by Rec and Park, Lifetime Activities, and the Tennis Coalition of San Francisco to ensure that it remains the city’s premier public tennis location,” said SF Rec and Park General Manager Phil Ginsburg.
