Santa Monica
Tennis Club

Everyone is welcome!  Tennis lovers who enjoy playing doubles in a friendly atmosphere comprise our club.  There’s no facility, rather we play at Christine Emerson Reed Park (Wilshire Blvd. at 7th St.), a public park in Santa Monica. It has been in operation since 1928 at this same location.

We offer membership to all adults, regardless of area of residency. Good sportsmanship and a knowledge of tennis rules are the only requirements.

Join Us!

Most Affordable Tennis Club in Los Angeles

Your yearly fee of $95 entitles you free Sunday play weather permitting.  That’s $1.82 for 5 hours worth of play

Social Activities include the Hello Tournament and the Club Championships Parties. Activities also include low cost weekend trips, mostly to tennis resorts within a two hour drive. However, trips have also ranged as far afield as Hawaii, where Club members went to a Luau and met – no kidding – the King of Hawaii. Trips also include “happy hour” socials, group dinners, tournaments, as well as ad hoc play-until-you-drop games. Most resorts feature swimming pools, jacuzzis, professional massage, and other amenities
