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.
