Pac-12 Conference announces Barnes Tennis Center in San Diego to host 2021 Pac-12 Tennis Championships
SAN FRANCISCO – The Pac-12 Conference announced today that the 2021 Pac-12 Men’s and Women’s Tennis Championships will be held at the Barnes Tennis Center in San Diego from April 23 – April 26. The selection of the Barnes Tennis Center follows the decision by the Ojai Valley Tennis Club that it would be unable to host the event due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The Barnes Tennis Center is a premier tennis venue which has hosted major tennis competitions including the USTA Girls 16 and 18 National Championships and the 2021 Easter Bowl, among others. The venue features 25-lighted courts, along with a 3,000 square foot activity center, sports science room, and the Booth Education Center, which includes classrooms and an education center.
“We are very pleased to have found a great partner in the Barnes Tennis Center to provide a fantastic venue and championships experience for our Pac-12 tennis student-athletes,” said Erik Price, Associate Commissioner of the Pac-12. “The Barnes Tennis Center boasts a superb tennis facility and the city of San Diego represents a world class host city for this storied Pac-12 championship event.”
"We are very excited to host the 2021 Pac-12 Men's and Women's Tennis Conference Championships,” said Ryan Redondo, CEO and General Manager of the Barnes Tennis Center. “The Barnes Tennis Center is a perfect site to showcase all of the talented Pac-12 student-athletes representing their world-class schools. I am particularly pleased that the great city of San Diego will provide a fantastic memory for all the Pac-12 seniors competing in their final Conference championships."
The Barnes Tennis Center is operated by Youth Tennis San Diego, a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the educational, physical and social development of all youth through organized tennis and educational activities.
The 2022 Pac-12 Men’s and Women’s Tennis Championships is slated to return to the Ojai Valley Tennis Club assuming health and safety conditions allow.
