Pacific Beach Tennis Club Proposed Improvements
The Pacific Beach Tennis Club has a rich history in the San Diego tennis community. It was founded in 1961 when a group headed by Dr. James Grant raised funds to construct six tennis courts in Mission Bay Park. The club is currently pursuing several endeavors to modernize its facility such as by adding a new restroom and providing increased racquet sport offerings including sand tennis, a new reservation system and revitalization of its pickleball program (See here).
