La Jolla Tennis Club
View Larger Map
LJTC was chartered in 1923 and maintains nine city-owned courts as a public facility. The club provides the nets, wind screens, resurfacing, lights, maintenance, cleaning, and landscaping. In addition, LJTC contributes $2,000 yearly to the La Jolla High School for the additional courts needed each summer for the annual La Jolla Tennis Championships and free Junior Clinics. The LJTC free Junior Clinic is run for youth who might not otherwise find access to instruction. All juniors (18 and under) play free at the club.
The LJTC Board of Directors is responsible for running the tennis club as a non-profit service to the membership and the community of San Diego. The BOD usually meets on the first Tuesday of every other month in the pro shop at 6 PM. Check the newsletter or this ljtc.org web site for verification of meeting times. Members are always invited to attend. The minutes of all meetings are approved at the following meeting, and subsequently are available for review in the white member’s notebook located in the pro shop. Additionally, documents related to recent board activities may be made available for download below.
