Wimbledon Champion Karen Hantze Susman to attend Surf and Turf Tennis Club’s free TennisFest in Del Mar

Surf and Turf Tennis Club will host its second annual TennisFest from 10:30 a.m. to noon on May 11. Karen Hantze Susman, who won four Wimbledon championships, the sport’s most coveted tournament, will attend to shake hands, give tips, and sign balls. Surf and Turf Tennis Club is located at 15555 Jimmy Durante Blvd. in Del Mar.

“TennisFest is a great opportunity to thank club members for their participation, introduce new people to the sport and the club, and present the sport as a lifetime activity,” said Alex Levie, head coach and director of tennis. “Last year’s TennisFest proved to be very popular, and because Karen Susman is joining us, we’re preparing for a pretty large crowd.”

TennisFest is a free event that includes clinic instruction for kids and adults, and new equipment demonstrations and tryouts from premier manufacturers Wilson, Head and Babolat. Children will have a blast on the designated kids’ court, aiming at targets for prizes and fun.

Admission is simple – players are simply required to “Like” Surf & Turf Tennis Club on Facebook to attend. New friends Surf and Turf makes on Facebook will be entered into a drawing to win a free lesson with one of the coaches. Also, a second drawing winner will receive a one-year, All Club Super Sport membership certificate to 24-Hour Fitness at any Super Sport level club, a $650 value. Club members can get in shape while learning the game of tennis.

Susman’s accomplishments include a singles and several doubles titles with Billy Jean King during the 1960s. She played at Wimbledon, the US Open, and Team Tennis. Susman, a native and current resident of San Diego County, still loves tennis, enjoying regular practices during the week, while indulging her passion for yard work and her dog Piper at home.
