Our annual SCTC Away Trip is the pinnacle event of the SCTC tennis year - and for 2015 it is bigger and better than ever before!  4 days & 3 nights of tennis and social events at the stunning Oceanside Pajaro Dunes Resort, including a fun 2 

day tourney with catered, lunch and dinner with drinks included both days!  What more could you want!

No Partner Required!  We have lots of single folks as well as couples that join us every year.  Many make sure they never miss it - and we have lots of capacity with 8 courts reserved, all on the same (South) side of the complex.  Participants are encouraged to organize their own roommates for best pricing at sign up.  Sign up is available for single participants "looking to share" a room, and you will get a rebate for the best room sharing price basis to which the organizer is finally able to assign you.

Members & Guests Welcome!  The SCTC Away Trip is being offered to SCTC members and to many neighboring clubs and friends of SCTC.  It is one of the best ways that we introduce SCTC's unique portfolio of social and competitive offerings to friends new and old.  Non-Members:  The Big Secret is that guests pay only $35 more than members, which is the mid-year SCTC membership fee, allowing you to sign up for this event as a member.  Go to Member Signup & Renewal to become a member now (for the remainder of 2015), and come back here to sign up for the Away Trip before the rooms are gone!

Amazingly, the total cost per person is only $405/person for a private King/Queen bedroom with private bathroom, for 2 people sharing.  We also encourage friends to save a lot of $$ when they are comfortable sharing rooms and beds, getting as low as $275/person for 4 people sharing 1 room with 2 Queen or Double beds and a shared bathroom.

SCTC is deservedly famous for our wonderfully diverse agenda of social and competitive tennis events, and for each of us going the extra mile to ensure that every player at every level is welcome and comfortable.  The annual SCTC Away Trip is where we shine the brightest, and create the biggest and best memories!

Reserve your room right away, because this event will fill up fast!  If your desired room type is no longer available, then (1) we will help you pick out the nearest room match still available, and (2) let us know your desired choice and we will keep note in case we add more accommodations (and courts) to accept a higher registration level.

The Away Trip includes a very complete offering of food, drinks, courts and fun covered in the cost, but we still treasure the personal involvement and contributions that make this event fabulous, fun and memorable for each other! 

Every participant agrees to a few simple responsibilities when they sign up:

1.  Bring an assigned food item (pastry, fruit, juice, appetizer, dessert) to serve 8-12 people

2.  Perform assigned duties responsibly and on time (set up, cleanup, getting coffee/ice, managing drinks and coolers, pickup or manage catering for a meal, moving tables and chairs, decorating and lighting tables, managing bonfire, providing boombox and music for courts or evening, managing games, providing truck/van transport, etc.)

4.  Your biggest responsibility:  Have a blast, and be an ambassador of fun for everyone else!


If your desired room type is no longer available at the time that you have paid for it to request confirmation of a reservation, you will be contacted by the Away Trip organizers and offered an alternative room type that is available.  This could be a lesser or shared room (if the trip is nearly filled) or could be a better room, according to availability.  If you accept the alternative room type that is available and offered, then any additional cost must be received from you right away to secure the changed reservation.  If a partial refund is due to you, you will be reimbursed for the overpayment amount at or before the event.  If you do not accept the alternative room type available at the time that it is offered, your entire payment will be refunded.

-  By 8/15/2015 full refund, less $50 per person cancelling.

-  By 8/29/2015 refund of 25% of full reservation       amount dependent on other substitutions available  

-  After 8/29/2015  refunds are not available.

Transfer of the registration to other eligible Members will be allowed up to 9/13/2015 without penalty.  Any transfer to eligible members after 9/13/2015 will require payment of a $50 additional fee per person.
