The name Jack Sanford has been synonymous with tennis in Santa Barbara for six decades. Ask anyone who knows him and you’ll learn that, in all those years, his enthusiasm for the sport has never waned. Upon graduating from Cal Poly (SLO) in 1960 where he played on the men’s tennis team he accepted the position of Hanford HS boys and girls tennis coach and PE teacher. In 1965 Jack became the Santa Barbara City College men’s tennis coach and a physical education instructor. During his 29 year SBCC coaching tenure more than 300 young men played on his team and many more young men and women came under his tutelage through tennis classes. He continued to teach classes until 2015. All of his students and players learned that hard work is the key to success in life and tennis. Jack brought a California State tennis championship to SBCC, has coached several All American tennis players and two Ojai tournament champions. Many of his former students and players are still in the area teaching and coaching tennis. Jack is presently a USTA/ITA umpire and continues to officiate college matches and junior tournaments throughout the county. He has been inducted into both the SB Athletic Round Table and the SB Tennis Patrons Hall of Fame.  In 2006 Jack and his wife Cathy for over 60+ years, their his six children and 17 grandchildren were selected as the Southern California Tennis Association Family of the Year. He continues to play tennis and enjoy the beauty and the privilege of living in the Santa Barbara area.

Tennis Phenom Kayla Day Goes Pro

Santa Barbara Teenage Superstar Will Play Australian Open This Month

Wednesday, January 4, 2017

Kayla Day truly went through a leap year in 2016. Santa Barbara’s teenage tennis phenom vaulted from one of many to number one and from amateur girl to professional woman.

Her progression was evident in the junior girls’ singles at three major tournaments. Day reached the round of 16 at the French Open, advanced to the semifinals at Wimbledon, and won the championship at the U.S. Open. Her sixth and final match in Flushing Meadows, New York, was a 6-3, 6-2 victory over Viktoria Kuzmova of Slovakia. With that triumph, Day secured the end-of-the-year No. 1 girls’ world ranking by the International Tennis Federation (ITF).

Day turned 17 on September 28 and could continue to compete for junior championships in 2017. One of the goals she proclaimed several years ago was, in fact, to win the Wimbledon girls’ title at 17. But at a gathering last week at the Santa Barbara Tennis Club, she announced her decision to leap into the WTA(Women’s Tennis Association) Tour as a professional.

“It was a tough decision,” Day said. “It was hard to pass up great colleges” — schooled by her parents and a tutor, she is a semester away from completing her high school requirements — “but tennis is something I want to wake up and do every day.”

Tennis Club pro Larry Mousouris, who guided Day through her youth career, said she’s paid her dues. “She embraces the difficult,” he said. “So many times, in so many matches, things get difficult.” Day frequently left the comforts of home, he added, to hone her game with stops from China to Eastern Europe. “She made the choice to leave paradise and go to hell and back.”

Day got a taste of competition with the pros in several minor WTA tournaments last year, and by virtue of winning the USTAGirls 18 national championship, she received a wild-card entry into the main draw of the U.S. Open. She won her first-round match before losing to No. 8–seeded Madison Keys, 6-1, 6-1. After that lesson, she mowed down the girls.
