November 2018


Hi PBTC Members,

A reminder that voting is open for the four open board positions for the term 2019-2020.  The four candidates are Phil Tan (a current director), Lucas Heilman, Kate Spiro, and Bruno Gomes. You will have received the candidates' statements and your ballot via email and/or mail. Please submit your ballot by December 11. The votes will be counted at our meeting on December 12. For easy access to the candidates' statements, voting instructions, and your ballot click here.

Another reminder that our Annual Meeting will be held December 1, concurrent with our Holiday Mixer from 12pm-2pm. The meeting will be brief as there is no club business that the Board has chosen to bring forward to the membership at the meeting. However, there will be the opportunity for members to offer their suggestions for improving our club. If you wish to offer any suggestions before then, please email or phone David Fogel at david_fogel_nsi@yahoo.com  or (858) 349-0848. 

Please see below for feedback on the Turkey Tournament, information regarding our next club mixer, an update on the De Anza Cove Revitalization Project, and a recent achievement by one of our club's juniors.

The PBTC Board would like to wish all our members, pros and their families a happy Thanksgiving!

PBTC Vice-President, 2018



The 43rd Annual Turkey tournament took place at the club on November 3rd. This year's theme was Hurricane Turkey. We had four teams participating but it was the Alley Gators who took home the title/turkey. They were led by captains Tracey Thompson and Phil Tan. Long time member Dan Kindred showed some inspired tennis throughout the day and John Westwood powered through the fun day of tennis. It was great to see long time members Gail Knight and Derrell Dunivin compete alongside new members Chris Wakefield, Jessica Bomyea, and Charles Taylor. The taco cart was fantastic but the tennis was even better. Many thanks to all those who participated. 

Head Turkey,

Steve Adamson

Club Manager

Last week, three competing plans to the city's De Anza Cove Amendment to the Mission Bay Park Plan (formerly called the De Anza Revitalization Plan) were informally presented to the public. These plans are from ReWild (through the Audubon Society), Campland, and the Mission Bay Gateway (an organization led by a community activist). All of these plans are on the table and will undergo environmental review. The Mission Bay Gateway plan proposes to relocate the tennis facility to the existing Mission Bay Boat and Ski Club (adjacent to our club across from the bike path), with 12 tennis courts, a new clubhouse, ample parking, and consideration that the new facility will be constructed first so that there is no disruption to our activities. This plan will be great for the future of tennis in the area and I encourage you to learn more and support it. Please go to to www.missionbaygateway.org and http://www.missionbaygateway.org/support.html for details. The other plans all have serious issues, and you can contact me at ptphiltan@gmail.com for more details. 

Upcoming events include a presentation by ReWild on their plan on December 6 from 4-7 pm at Mission Bay High School. In addition, the city is scheduled to release for public review their "Preparation of the Technical Studies and draft Program Environmental Impact Report (PEIR)" soon. The entire process is far from over and I will keep you informed!

Our juniors continue to shine. Congratulations to Trevor Svajda who recently, together with his doubles partner Hughes Peus, won the boys 12's at the Annual Jim Hillman Southern California Sectional Doubles Championship! They won without dropping a set. An impressive achievement!
