This year the tournament is expected to field more than 1,100 participants in 73 different divisions. In addition to the Open events, which attract the top tennis players in Southern California, the tournament will also offer family events (Mother/Son, Mother/Daughter, Father/Son, father/Daughter, and Husband/Wife), Junior events for the junior players age 10 to 18, age division events for ages 35 to 80, and class events for beginning to advanced players.

Through the years many National and World champions, such as Maureen Connolly and Dodo Cheney, have competed in the La Jolla Championships. In addition several participants, such as Tracy Austin, Rene Richards and Alexandra Stevenson have gone on to play on the professional tour.

The 95th Annual La Jolla Tennis Championships is open to the public and is free of charge.
