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.
Any member interested in serving on the BOD may collect signatures of 10 other members and petition the BOD to run for election to the board in a December election when openings exist (see below). All members interested in serving on or understanding the work of the BOD are invited to consult the LJTC bylaws available below or to talk to any current or past Board member.

Please read the following information about court access at the LJTC.
A recent incident on the tennis courts has reminded us of the importance of making sure all members and guests are familiar with our court access procedures and use them congenially and fairly. For your reference, please read the Club’s existing Rules and regulations.
A committee has been formed to examine the court access procedures currently in use at the La Jolla Tennis Club. The committee will consider adopting changes designed to enhance equality and fairness in court access as well as camaraderie and mutual enjoyment of the tennis courts. The committee welcomes any and all suggestions for possible changes to the existing system. Importantly, the existing court access system or any adopted changes to it should:
- Be self-administering by the players,
- Allow equal access to all members and guests, and
- Not permit any individual or group of individuals to dominate any particular court.
If you have any questions or suggestions for the committee, please email them to:email@example.com
We are looking forward to making sure all members and guests have a positive experience at the La Jolla Tennis Club.
