Team Tennis Introduction
What is Team Tennis?

Team Tennis is an intraclub activity. This year we will again have two different leagues of Team Tennis. The Traditional league is for players with ratings between 2.5 - 3.5. The Advanced League is for players with ratings between 4.0-4.5. Six teams are formed in the Traditional league, four teams in the Advanced league, and the teams will play one another once each month. Being on a Team Tennis league team is an exciting and rewarding way to meet and get to know other SCTC members while playing lots of tennis. The premise of Team Tennis is social tennis in a fun and relaxing environment, with a healthy dose of competition. Prizes are awarded to the four teams that make the playoffs (in the advanced league, all four teams make playoffs, but only the top team is awarded prizes).

What is the Roster Size and Match Format?

Teams consist of approximately 6 players, depending on registration. Each person on the team will play two pro style sets. In both the traditional and advanced leagues, there will be 6 pro sets in all (set players will be determined after sign-ups are complete and teams are formed). The teams will be balanced as much as possible.

When are the matches played?

Matches are played one Sunday of each month, starting in April at the Arguello tennis courts. Don’t worry if you can’t commit to every date; substitutes are used widely in Team Tennis. 

How do I sign up?

The cost per player is $50.00.  Players sign up individually and will generally be assigned to a team on a random basis. You must be a SCTC member to participate. Go to the Events and Sign Up page to get registered. Spots on teams are allocated on a first-come (paid), first-served basis (24 men, 24 women player cap for traditional league; 8 men, 8 women player cap for advanced league).

Who are the team captains?

It could be you! We need 6 captains to lead the 6 traditional teams, and 4 captains to lead the advanced teams. Being a captain is fun and rewarding. It is not much work – just communicate with your players as to when they are expected to be at the courts and work out who plays in what events. To make it even more enticing, if selected as a Captain your check will be returned to you. Yes, you can play the whole season for FREE!

What are the rules for matches?

A complete set of Team Tennis Rules is provided. It is a good idea to print out a copy and keep them in your tennis bag for easy reference.
