The health and safety of our players and providers is our top priority. The USTA is carefully monitoring the environment surrounding the COVID19 pandemic. We will rely on the USTA's Medical Advisory Group as well as government officials to inform our recommendations.
The health and safety of the entire tennis community is our top priority. As of June 1, the suspension of USTA Sanctioned products and events is now at the discretion of the USTA Sections and local health authorities.
In Memory of our Friend, Colleague and District Board Member Jim Winters
It's comes with great sadness to write that we lost one of our beloved tennis enthusiasts Jim Winters. Jim's accomplishments in the community will be forever remembered by everyone he touched. His never ending love of tennis and people made him one of the most generous contributors to the sport in San Diego. Jim was always there for us whether volunteering his time for events or organizing lessons and clinics in under served areas of San Diego. As a teacher he taught his students the value of always being grateful, kind and giving back.
In 1983 he founded the San Diego Tennis Federation, the first gay organized tennis club in San Diego. In 1985 Jim co-founded Cal Cup, a highly competitive tournament that's held every year in a competing city, L.A., San Francisco, Vancouver, B.C. and others.
Jim served on our District board since 2011 and was instrumental in helping organize our signature event Tennis Fest every year and was always part of the District tournament staff volunteering many hours of his time. Jim was awarded the District Community Service award for 2018 which he richly deserved for all of his contributions. Jim was one of the kindest, generous people and will be greatly missed by everyone that knew him. He succumbed to cancer at age 61.
