Winners Tennis Club is close to the beach in Del Mar, CA right near the fairgrounds, west of the 5. Membership prices are reasonable, the staff is friendly, and court times always seem available. The staff even set matches up for members. My membership includes unlimited tennis and use of the weight room and pool. I've taken lessons there and can highly recommend Willie or Matt. They were both knowledgeable and patient. This club has a very friendly, down to earth vibe. There are singles and families and retired people. It is a great mix of people. It has made me want to play tennis again!
Pros: Great location, friendly atmosphere, night-time lighted courts available
Cons: I didn't know about this hidden gem sooner.
