Fall USTA league play

With the 40+ mixed USTA season up and running, it's time to plan for the next session of USTA play! consider registering a team for Combo, Mixed 55+, Daytime Combo, and Daytime 70+ leagues. Team registration for captains starts on July 4, with play starting on August 29. Get in touch with our USTA coordinator John Swiecki, if you would like to form a team.

Logo redesign challenge

We've decided that our club logo needs a revamp. Do you know your way around Illustrator? Have a way with color? Know what a sans serif font is? Feeling a little competitive? We invite you to submit ideas, however un-developed, for a new logo. We'll use the new logo to adorn the website, our communications, and our home courts at Arguello. Please submit your ideas, even if it's just photographs of hand-drawn sketches, to by June 30th, and a small committee of SCTC Board members will pick the best one to pursue, with the help of a graphic designer, if needed. A prize awaits the best idea!

    July 4th Fun Day

    Summer's here, and that means more tennis and more fun! We'll play on Monday, July 4th at Carlmont in 2-hour sessions: one beginning with 9-11am, and the second from 11-1. This schedule seems to give all players more time on court. Sign up on the Events page, beginning Thursday, June 9th. FREE for members!!

    Women's drop-in Reset for Mondays

    Thanks to SCTC member Dawn Campbell for offering to organize and revive the Monday women's doubles playing event! Ladies, we'll start Monday, June 6th, at Highlands Park Tennis Courts from 8:00 - 10:00 am.  No registration is necessary, but if you want to let Dawn know, email to Ladies, start the week off with some fun doubles tennis with pals old and new.

    SAVE the DATE: Away Trip Oct 14-16

    Mark your calendars for this not-to-be-missed event: 2 days of tennis and off-court fun in Paso Robles.  Details coming out soon.  This event always fills up quickly, so be ready to sign up when the alert comes.

    Fit to be Tied with Foster City

    The Memorial Day tournament with FCTC was fought hard by both sides. The outcome says it all: tied at exactly 16 points for each club.  We'll settle this properly next time!  Many thanks to Thiru for organizing and making this tournament run smoothly.

    Safe Play Policies - Oh My, Omicron!

    The Omicron variant of COVID is transmissible 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 i
    f 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!).
