Manager's Notes

With the summer season coming to an end, once again we were an extremely busy facility. Our staff, including front desk, tennis, fitness, aquatics and maintenance did an outstanding job, which contributed to our success. The maintenance and aquatic staff just completed a week of thorough cleaning of the facility. We thank all the members and patrons of the facility for your patience during this process.
In looking forward to the fall, we have brought on a few new fitness instructors as well as a couple new tennis pros. Please welcome them if you see new faces around the center.
The fitness and pool schedules have been updated effective September 1st. Come on out and try a fitness class or take a swim in the pool. With the cooler weather ahead, the tennis courts will get busier, so be sure to reserve your court and come on out and play, join a league or come out for a fun time at one of our tennis socials.
Please refer to the City of Calabasas Recreation Brochure for other upcoming classes here and around the community. For events here at the center, visit our website.
Have a wonderful fall and hope to see you soon!

Top Seed Tennis Academy

Hello Everyone,
 
Top Seed Tennis Academy would like to thank you for supporting our summer camp program, which was incredibly successful! Top Seed has been running summer tennis camps since 1994 when the City of Calabasas purchased the club. The 2018 summer was by far the best in our history and I would like to thank all the staff; with special acknowledgments to Terri Secondino our Business Coordinator, Brady Hiete our Tennis Manager, Jason Gaona our Head Professional, and all the tennis staff for their outstanding contributions that maintain our status as a premier tennis camp in Southern California!
 
I am thrilled to announce that over the last few months we have acquired some new additions to our Tennis Professional family! I would like to introduce Roger Muri from Switzerland, Caesar Schwarz from Australia and Arnau Dachs Vaque from Spain. Top Seed's new pros will inject some international talent that will blend well with our exceptional American staff. It is inspiring to see them working together and quickly becoming a landmark team of coaches.
 
This fall, Top Seed's newest tennis professionals will be joining many new Adult Clinics along with long-time coaches such as Jeff Richards who is our Events and Tournament Director. Please check in with the front desk, as they will soon have information on days, times, levels and costs for these programs. These new classes, along with some of the already popular existing clinics, will improve your strokes, movement and strategy while you meet other adult players at your level of play!
 
Lastly, the Top Seed Annual After School program has begun Monday-Friday for juniors between the ages of 5-18. Our clinics offer instruction for all levels of play, whether your child is a beginner or an advanced/national player. Clinics fill up quickly so sign up as soon as possible to ensure a position for your child. Last year we sold out many clinics and once they are full, we cannot accept more players so reserve your spot early in the season! The junior tennis program at the Calabasas Tennis and Swim Center is considered one of the best in Southern California as for over two decades we continue to fine-tune our offerings in order to "go beyond great!"
 
This fall and winter, Top Seed is offering some incredible tennis programs for adults and junior players so sign up and get started to improve your game while having a great time!

Sincerely,
 
Steve McAvoy
President & Owner
