Rancho Santa Fe Tennis Club to celebrate 50th anniversary

By Karen Billing

The Rancho Santa Fe Tennis Club is gearing up for its 50-year anniversary celebration this summer.

Jim McAllister, a member of the tennis club board, visited the Rancho Santa Fe Association Board of Directors June 5 to present an update on the club’s June party, for which the Association has budgeted $20,000. The board agreed to authorize $3,000 for initial planning purposes and the tennis club will still have to return for a funding request.

McAllister said they are working on celebrity guests for tennis and ping pong exhibitions and they hope to send invitations out by March, aiming for around 300 people to attend the event.
