Calabasas Tennis & Swim Center -
success story in the city of Calabasas

by Rich Neher
Built in 1969 as a private club, the Calabasas Tennis & Swim Center was purchased by the City of Calabasas in 1994. Managed by Top Seed Tennis Academy, this facility features 15 hard courts, 14 tennis professionals, a fitness center and an aquatic program with 2 pools. Four outstanding SoCal tennis pros are managing the tennis program at this club:
  • Steve McAvoy, President of Top Seed Tennis Academy
  • Jonas Wallgaard, Tennis Director
  • Brady Hiete, Head Pro
  • Jeff Richards, Tournament & Social Events Director
With a year-round junior program that serves the tennis needs of the community with about 250 kids per week, Junior Team Tennis and Jr. Open Tournament, this club is big on growing the game from very early ages on. But the programs for adults are equally exciting, with 12 USTA league teams, a number of WTT teams, sanctioned senior and NTRP tournament, and an in-house league.
Calabasas Tennis & Swim Center is also very involved with professional tennis. Hosting a USTA Pro Circuit event for 14 years at this facility, the $15,000 ITF USA F7 Futures event in March is now the only professional tennis tournament in the metropolitan Los Angeles area.
Top Seed Tennis Academy manages tennis programs at Calabasas, The Paseo Club (Valencia), and at North Ranch Country Club (Westlake Village). They produced many champions in the past 20 years, with players going to some of the finest universities in the country. President Steve McAvoy says, "Top Seed has partnered with the City of Calabasas since 1994, and since its inception continues to be one of the premier tennis clubs in Southern California. We have a four year waiting list for memberships and the tennis programs; from private lessons, to adult group clinics; summer camp and tournaments are some of the biggest in the United States."
Steve, who himself has extensive knowledge in developing and implementing the programs needed to run full service facilities, adds, "Top Seed offers the most high level tennis professionals and I am extremely proud of what we have been able to accomplish over the years working with the City of Calabasas. I am very appreciative of Top Seed's relationship with city and how we have grown together over time to develop a premier facility that serves a great community."
