While the original tennis center at Golden Gate Park housed 21 courts, these new ones are spaced out appropriately in accordance with US Tennis Association guidelines. There are 15 standard tennis courts, one sunken court with built-in stadium style seating, and 5 mini-courts for children’s tennis or pickleball. New lighting has been installed, which means an additional 20,000 hours of play per year.

The 7,800 square-foot Taube Family Clubhouse is just as impressive. It features a lounge, recreation room, locker room, kitchen, patio area, garden, and a beautiful tile mural by artist Sanaz Mazinani. The Tennis Learning Center (TLC) will also enjoy a new classroom to launch their middle school program.

Discounts will be available for seniors, youth, and SF residents. San Francisco Recreation and Parks reports that “weekday court rentals will be free for San Francisco youth before 6 p.m., while seniors can rent a court starting at $4 an hour.”

Golden Gate Park has been a hub for the San Francisco tennis community since 1894. That’s 126 years! We’re pretty sure that these amazing courts deserved a facelift, and they will host thousands more players for years to come. 

Be sure to reserve a court soon!
