Tennis players from the Palos Verdes Peninsula and South Bay are getting ready for the 41st Annual Tracy Austin Doubles Tennis Tournament, which will be held on July 20 & 21, 2019. Overflow matches will be held on Friday, July 19, 2019, at Ernie Howlett Tennis Club. This tournament is named in honor of our own local tennis celebrity, Tracy Austin, and proceeds from the event benefit the Pepper Tree Foundation which contributes to the maintenance and development of parks, trails and open space in the Rolling Hills Estates community.
