Del Mar tennis club named Club of the Year 2012

Surf & Turf Tennis Club in Del Mar has been named Tennis Club of the Year by the San Diego District Tennis Association, a local arm of the United States Tennis Association (USTA), tennis’ governing body.

“We’re very proud to have been selected ‘Club of the Year 2012,’” said Alex Levie, club owner and head professional. “We believe we offer a great facility, the best instructors and are a value to the community.”

The Levie family has been managing Surf & Turf for the past 15 years. Levie has won numerous professional awards as well as countless tournaments since his early days as a tennis player and professional. Levie’s mother, Berniece Levie, has been teaching tennis since 1971. In past years, Alex was named “Coach of the Year,” and the family named “Family of the Year,” by the same organization.

The family’s tennis legacy continues as son Adam, senior at Torrey Pines High School, has played in and won numerous local, regional and national tournaments. Alex and Adam have won their last four tournaments in a row this summer in the San Diego area, playing father/son doubles.
