Rec and Park's Tennis and Learning Center program provides one-on-one tutoring, parent engagement, tennis instruction and other support services for a total of 100 elementary students each year at:

  • Palega Recreation Center in the Excelsior, in partnership with Hillcrest Elementary
  • Hamilton Recreation Center in the Western Addition, in partnership with Rosa Parks Elementary
  • Betty Ann Ong Recreation Center in Chinatown, in partnership with Gordon J. Lau Elementary
  • Youngblood Coleman Playground in Bayview Hunter's Point, in partnership with George Washington Carver Elementary

Construction has begun to transform Golden Gate Park's 125-year-old tennis center into one of the best public tennis facilities in the nation. The $27 million project was made possible through a partnership with the San Francisco Parks Alliance and the Tennis Coalition. The new center will feature 17 new USTA-regulation courts, a sunken court feature and a dedicated pickleball court. A new clubhouse will allow us to expand the TLC program to middle school, serving an additional 60-80 students each year.
