In Loving Memory

Alina Halloran
April 6, 1972 - November 6, 2021

Alina Halloran was a San Carlos Tennis Club member, USTA teammate and friend. Our heartfelt condolences to her family: Brett, Jack, Edie, Deryn and Tim. To celebrate Alina, donations can be made to the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation:

New USTA Season starts in January

USTA is registering teams for the winter season, with matches from Jan 3 through March 13, 2022, plus postseason play.  Leagues include 40+, 40+ Daytime, 18+ Mixed, and 65+ Daytime. 

San Carlos teams (20 of them!) are listed on the USTA site; check often on this USTA page for the most current list of registered teams.  Two additional womens teams are listed here. For help in getting onto a team, sign up here. NOTE: players cannot register officially on teams until Dec 2, so all teams are marked by USTA as CLOSED until then. Contact the listed captain to reserve a spot on the roster.

Club leagues continue through December

The current club leagues, scheduled to end by December, will continue in their same time slots through the month of December.  Check with your Coordinator if there's any question as to whether or not matches will be held for your league.

Women's singles event report

Congratulations to all of the ladies playing in the November 21 event. The Championship match was exciting and close! Polina took the win in a hard fought battle. Thank you to Tiffany for running the event!

Oh, what a FUN DAY!

On Sunday the 14th of November, under sunny blue skies, the club hosted a day of tennis as a thank-you to the Membership. Over sixty members played in 2-hour sessions, each having 4 30-minute sets.  It was a great way to meet new members and players outside of your usual tennis partners!  Special bonuses were the raffle prizes of tennis accessories given to 20 lucky players.

Thanks to Laureen Cortez, Lisa McKenna, and Carol Rhodes for organizing this event.

Arguello courts available for member rental

Safe Play Policies - Being Diligent about Delta!

The Delta variant of COVID is transmittable even among vaccinated people, and we need to double-down on our precautions. The following rules apply whether or not you’re vaccinated. If you participate in club events or USTA leagues:

Do NOT play if you feel ill, even with mild symptoms.

Do NOT play if you have been exposed within the last 10 days to someone who has tested positive. Quarantine and go get tested.  Alert all those you have been in contact with if you are covid-positive.

Registering for a SCTC event or playing USTA comes with the expectation that you: 

1. Do not come onto the courts until the appointed time of event.

2. Maintain a social distance of 6 feet, including during turnovers. Do not huddle face-to-face for strategizing with your partner.  Both should face the back fence, standing apart.

3. Any refreshments need to be available in single-serving containers (like a banana!).
