“Both BJK and Eldo feel pretty similar since they are both hardcourt, but there are slight differences in Eldo’s material that make the court play faster. This makes the ball bounce lower and lose less speed compared to BJK, which fits my style of play.”

- Nick Zemlin



“El Dorado and especially BJK tennis center are my home away from home. I’m a Long Beach native and learned how to play tennis at BJK. As an adult, some of my most cherished friendships began on the courts at BJK. The tennis courts and the people in my life because of these tennis courts truly bring me happiness.”
