NOTE: Registrations are accepted to enter the queue for room assignment ONLY AFTER you have entered ALL requested data for ALL persons (must be SCTC members) required to reserve your chosen room type, AND full payment has been received and cleared by SCTC for all of them. Rooms will not be held pending payment. All payments are strongly requested to be completed online.
Registration is closed
NOTE:  The trip is nearly sold out in the housing units that we have reserved.  You can see the available room types remaining below.  If you want to join the trip but want a different type of bedroom than those remaining, you may contact to add your name and room type desired to the standby list.  If we have enough standby demand, we will try to add another housing unit to accommodate the additional interest.  We do have the court capacity available to continue adding participants - so we hope you will try to join us!

Our annual SCTC Away Trip is the pinnacle event of the SCTC tennis year - and for 2013 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 delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner and 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 capacity for more than ever with 12 courts reserved!  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 able to assign you.

Members & Guests Welcome!  The SCTC Away Trip will be advertised to SCTC members only for signup until 8/1, and will advertised to other clubs and friends of SCTC thereafter.  Non-Members:  The Big Secret is that guests pay only $30 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 2013), and come back here to sign up for the Away Trip before the rooms are gone!

Amazingly, the total cost per person is only $320/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 $210/person for 5 people sharing 1 room with 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!

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

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

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 within 24 hours 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.
