While every player starts out with love in the game of tennis, there’s ultimately always one side that triumphs. On July 24, Beverly Hills Tennis emerged as the winner in providing the City’s tennis needs for the next two decades following a 4-1 vote by the City Council to amend and reinstate the City’s lease agreement with the service provider.
Vice Mayor John Mirisch was the lone “no” vote.
For 23 years, Beverly Hills Tennis, which is the DBA for The Tennis Place, Inc., has been the concessionaire for the City in terms of meeting its tennis-related needs. In addition to operating tennis courts at La Cienega Park, Roxbury Park and Beverly Hills High School, Beverly Hills Tennis runs a pro shop and offers more than 150 classes and private lessons per week. In recent years it has also hosted charity tournaments benefitting The Maple Counseling Center and the Beverly Hills Police Foundation.
