The Barnes Tennis Center is owned and operated by Youth Tennis San Diego. It was built in 1995 and completed in 1997. This 4.5 million dollar facility was made possible with generous public and private donations. The Center is named after our lead donor family - the "George E. Barnes Family Junior Tennis Center." The Center is dedicated to the youth of San Diego. Children 18 and under have court priority over adults with advanced reservations! The capital campaign was spearheaded by Dr. Homer Peabody Jr. Youth Tennis San Diego gratefully acknowledges Dr. Peabody's tremendous contribution to make our dream a reality.


Today, the Barnes Center serves as one of San Diego's finest jewels, and is a model for several communities throughout the Nation. The Center is the home of Youth Tennis San Diego offices, all Youth Tennis San Diego junior tournaments, Barnes Center tennis programs, After School Tennis special events, adult programs, corporate programs, a library and educational programs. 

Adults are welcome! There is no membership fee. Players pay a small usage fee.


Come and visit us and see our wall of donors who made the Barnes Center possible. Our "Friends of the Barnes Center" list our annual donors. Walk around and read the inscriptions on the memorial bricks. We invite you to support the Barnes Center by sponsoring a Bench or Brick or with an Annual Giving donation.
