The Rancho Santa Fe Association approved Sept. 6 a $17,000 funding request from the Rancho Santa Fe Tennis Club for its 50th Anniversary Celebration during Rancho Days. The Oct. 7 event will be a family barbecue catered by the RSF Golf Club and will feature a tennis exhibition with Tracy Austin, a two-time U.S. Open champion and Wimbledon mixed doubles champion.
“We’re very lucky to get Tracy Austin,” said RSF Association Director Craig McAllister, a former tennis club board president. “It’s going to be a nice day and a great event.”
The club also expects appearances from former tennis pros Charlie Pasarell and Rod Laver.
The event will be held from noon to 5 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children under 16 in advance and $12 for adults and $6 for children at the door. An opportunity drawing will be held to win a free one-year tennis membership. (For more, see the Rancho Days special section in this issue of the RSF Review.)
