Sunset Rec Center

The New Sunset Rec Center

Residents of the Sunset District have enjoyed Sunset Recreation Center since 1940, making it a main hub of activity for kids in the outer Sunset. In response to community needs, the Recreation and Park Department is dedicating nearly $14 million of the 2008 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond to ensure this local treasure will continue to promote good health and community togetherness through its recreational facilities. The renovation of Sunset Recreation Center is scheduled to be completed in summer 2012.

Tennis – QuickStart Tennis Program (Beg) Ages 8-15 1:00 pm 2:00 pm Sunset Recreation Center Tennis Court 1 Youth, Tweens & Teens Sports David Hong 03/22 05/24

In conjunction with the United States Tennis Association-Northern California Division, the San Francisco Recreation & Park Department is introducing the QuickStart tennis program. Could you imagine sending your child out to play baseball for the first time with the same-sized bat and ball that is used in the major leagues? Or a five year old playing basketball on a 10-foot hoop? Of course not. The QuickStart format uses child appropriate equipment, such as smaller racquets, larger tennis balls, & smaller courts in order to transition young aspiring tennis players into the lifetime sport of tennis. Technical skills are easier to learn & children can have more fun & tennis physical activity with this new program & league play.
