The Barnes Tennis Center

Elliot Feuerstein earned a bachelor’s degree from UCLA before ultimately embarking on a career in shopping center development. Based in the area of San Diego, CA, Elliot Feuerstein has participated in fundraising for the Barnes Tennis Center, an educational facility that Youth Tennis San Diego (YTSD) operates.

A nonprofit organization, YTSD was named the 2016 USTA Organization Member of the Year. Through community outreach and tennis-based programs, the organization works to build responsible citizens and improve the community. Some of YTSD's programs are hosted at the Barnes Tennis Center.

In addition to offering tennis classes and lessons for children of all ages, the Barnes Tennis Center offers a vital afterschool education program and homework assistance through the Booth Education Center, which is located on-site. The center features tables for studying, as well as a library with books that focus on the history of tennis. 

The Booth Education Center offers these services as part of the Junior Aces program. Designed for children aged 3 to 5, Junior Aces combines academics and active play. The children engage in physical activities such as tennis lessons.
