San Carlos Tennis Club

About San Carlos Tennis Club (SCTC)


The Club was organized in 1975 to promote tennis activities in the area. The Club operates in cooperation with the San Carlos School District (SCSD), headquartering and organizing most SCTC events at SCSD's Arundel School tennis courts (adjacent to Arguello Park).  Some activities are organized or overflow onto nearby Carlmont High School and City of San Carlos and/or other school courts, as needed.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS:

The Club is administered by a Board of selfless, dedicated and tireless volunteers. Positions and duties are set forth in the Constitution. The Board meets monthly to plan events and to establish and review goals and policies. All members are welcome to attend the meetings, which are publicized in the Club Newsletter. The Board is elected at a General Membership Meeting held during the annual Holiday Party.  Monthly board approved financials for SCTC can be found in the Members-only section of the website.


MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY:

All members receive access to a Membership Directory, which includes a roster of members and other useful information.

WEB SITE:

Members and prospective members can visit www.sancarlostennis.com for complete Club information, including timely updates and pictures. For the convenience of prospective members, membership applications can be submitted and paid for online.

TOURNAMENTS:

A weekend tournament is offered in most months, typically providing an enjoyable mixture of social fun and competitive tennis. Tournaments are primarily in mixed or gender doubles format with rotating or fixed partnerships, but may occasionally include singles or junior events.  Tournaments are generally open to the public, and we welcome new participants to join us. Tournament entrants are placed in divisions based on level of play (NTRP and past tournament results), and handicapping may be applied for level mismatches.

SOCIAL EVENTS:

Organized social tennis and party events are scheduled each year, including:
1. Weekly Drop-in Doubles, four days a week.
2. Fun Days (informal drop-in doubles) on the major holiday weekends.
3. Twilight "Doubles and Dinner" events, usually featuring mixed doubles.
4. Annual Away Trip on a fall weekend.
5. Holiday Party, including a cocktail hour, catered dinner and dancing.
These events are also typically open to the public, and provide excellent introductions to the Club.

TEAM TENNIS (Intra-Club):

This program provides a great opportunity for members to get to know other members. At least six teams are formed and play on the second Saturday of each month, April through September.

USTA LEAGUES (Inter-Club):

The Club fields teams in this USTA-sponsored program at several NTRP Rating levels. Men's, Women's and Mixed Doubles Leagues are offered for Adults and Seniors (50 & over) and Super Seniors (65 & over). Informal inter-club matches also may be scheduled.

LADDERS:

The challenge ladders provide an excellent opportunity for members to measure their level of play against other Club members. Ladders are maintained for Men's and Women's Singles, Men's and Women's Doubles and Mixed Doubles as interest warrants.

The Club supports occasional Junior program offerings as well. Junior members with appropriate playing experience are eligible to participate in the Club's adult tournaments.
