San Diego Mesa College Completes Eight Tennis Court Renovation Project
By Office of Communications
The Greater San Diego City Tennis Council (GSDCTC) proudly announces the completion
of an eight tennis court renovation project at San Diego Mesa College. San Diego Mesa
College (SDMC) chose to have their eight courts repaired and resurfaced in two toned
dark and light blue colors. One of the eight tennis courts has been lined for USTA
“10 and under tennis” to enhance the enjoyment and development of younger children.
The courts were professionally renovated and resurfaced by Ferandell Tennis Courts.
This project was financed by a combination of generous support from the GSDCTC (via
foundations and private donors), the San Diego Community College District and a grant
from the San Diego District Tennis Association (SDDTA).
David Gill, VP Finance of GSDCTC stated, “We appreciate collaborating yet again with
the San Diego Community College District as well as with our long-term partner the
SDDTA to renovate this centrally located community recreational asset. We are confident
that broad community usage will continue to take place at SDMC by local juniors, adults
and families as well as significant activity by collegiate tennis team members and
recreational use by SDMC students.”
Dr. Pamela Luster, President of SDMC stated, “Tennis is an individual sport, but this
truly was a collaborative effort. We are very proud of partnerships such as these
so that our community, as well as our student athletes, can enjoy these courts.”
Anne Podney, Chair of the Grant Committee for the SDDTA stated, "The SDDTA is pleased
that Mesa College is committed to the growth of tennis on its campus as well as in
the surrounding community."
The GSDCTC is a 501(c)3 charitable organization whose mission is to repair and resurface public
tennis courts within San Diego County. We rely on the generosity of private donors, foundations,
corporations and other entities to support our endeavors.
