We offer year round tennis classes and a summer camp. LoveSetMatch is a program partner with the County of Los Angles for Tennis & Yoga and the USTA to provide tennis programming at various sites around So Cal.

In this episode we hear about the Pro Tennis exhibition event Ultimate Tennis Showdown and how our LoveSetMatch coaching team go to experience this magical fun live at the Dignity Health Arena in Carson, CA.  Our cohost Valerie Garcia breaks down what the event is and what her take on it is coming from a lover of traditional tennis and someone who experience Laver Cup live as well.  Tune In!

After a two-year absence, UTS returned in July 2023 with the fifth edition of the tournament, known as UTS Los Angeles. UTS 5 was held in Los Angeles at the Dignity Health Sports Park between 21 July and 23 July, and was the first edition to be staged outside of Europe. It was the first tournament in a series of three events leading up to the “Grand Final” in December 2023.[8]

“The Tornado” Corentin Moutet was the defending champion, but chose not to participate.

“The Great Wall” Wu Yibing won the event, defeating “The Hotshot” Taylor Fritz 11–16, 7–20, 12–11, 16–9, 2–0.[9]
