Golden Gate Park Tennis Center Renovation Project

We are excited to announce the Tennis Center is Now Open. Online court reservations can be made starting today at or by calling (415) 581-2540. COVID-19 health precautions require advance reservations to play or visit.

Since 1894 players of every age and ability have learned, played, and competed in an iconic location in Golden Gate Park. Billie Jean King, Rosie Casals, and Peanut Louie Harper played here. And today, kids from tots to teens come to work on what matters - a love of tennis, perseverance, and becoming a good sport.

That’s the vision that fueled a re-designed, re-imagined Golden Gate Park Tennis Center.
