Weddington Golf & Tennis has the only lighted 16 tennis courts available for the public within many miles around Studio City. These courts are being constantly used by local tennis players, league and tournament programs, and more than 30 tennis professionals teaching the sport to adults and children all over the San Fernando Valley.

Weddington owners Harvard Westlake wants to remove 8 of the current 16 tennis courts. To make matters worse for the local tennis playing community, none of the tennis courts will be available for use during the anticipated construction period of approximately 2 years!

Should Harvard Westlake plans go through, the eight remaining courts will be available to the Valley neighborhood community only when these courts are not being used by Harvard Westlake or other guests. The limited use of eight courts is no benefit to the community. Why cannot sixteen tennis courts be shared by Harvard Westlake with its neighbors? These courts have been used since the 1950s by tennis enthusiasts from Studio City and throughout Southern California. It is a serious loss to the community when all courts become unavailable for two years and then 50% of much-needed tennis courts are being destroyed.

It is imperative that 16 tennis courts remain open to the public. And it is even more important today and post-COVID-19 because the sport of tennis, being described as the safest of all sports in the country, enjoys unprecedented popularity and is expected to next year go into its greatest growth period since the boom of the 80s.
