Beach tennis comes to La Jolla Shores

The latest trend in beach sports will hit La Jolla Shores on Oct. 15 with the fourth annual Beach Tennis Smash. The event is the culmination of a season that got under way June 6.

Beach tennis is like regular tennis except it’s played on a regulation volleyball court.

Players use regular tennis rackets and two players on each side hit a slightly depressurized tennis ball over the net without it hitting the sand.
“I was hooked from Day 1 — the beach, the music, beach tennis is a blast,” said Gretchen Magers, a former WTA tour pro and San Diego Beach Tennis Association president.
