what they’re saying
On first coming to Mission Viejo, I was in an unknown land and focused only on my tennis. Standing in a venue where I received a family welcome, I knew instantly that this facility was an elite tennis arena. The California climate and the atmosphere at the Marguerite Tennis Pavilion are strengths for players. I would love to see a new Masters there!”Stephane Houdet, ITF Doubles Champion & Gold Medalist
