Considered one of the area’s hidden gems, the private Toluca Lake Tennis and Fitness Club — situated near the base of the Hollywood Hills and adjacent to major studios — mimics Toluca Lake’s small-town feel by providing members a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of its surroundings. Its founders envisioned a space that encouraged a healthy lifestyle, friendly competition and, most importantly, a sense of community. Forty years and counting, the club is fulfilling this goal, and its journey from tennis club to recreational mainstay is now a special part of Toluca Lake’s storied history.
