Mix it up with USTA this Summer

The 40+ mixed USTA season is starting soon. 6.0, 7.0, 8.0 and 9.0 teams are forming for play beginning on June 20th. SCTC has a few teams registered, but there is room for more teams.  Contact our USTA coordinator John Swiecki if you are interested in forming a team

The deadline to register a team is fast approaching - May 23rd. Once a team is registered, players can register up to and even beyond the start of play. If you are interested in playing with a team (and have not yet spoken to a captain), you can sign up here to indicate your interest.

  • Team Registration: April 25 - May 23
  • League Season: June 20 - August 28

Court Updates

There's a new backboard on the Carlmont courts, thanks in part to a donation from our club.  Check it out next time you are playing at Carlmont!

Newly renovated courts at Highland Park are available again.  Pickleball players will be happy about the pickleball court stripes added to Courts 1 and 2 (bring your own nets).  Tennis players: bring your earplugs and patience!

SCTC teams at USTA Sectionals - More results

Last weekend, several SCTC teams competed on courts in the Sacramento area.  Last Buzz showed the Grateful Red, W2.5/3.0 DT team led by captain Elaine Chen, who fought fiercely and nearly took 2nd place. Ashi LaBouisse's Supreme Court W3.5 DT team won their flight 3/0 and came up second in the final playoff. Ashi's regular W3.5 team also went to Sectionals, with many of the same players on both teams.  Photo below.

On the Men's side, M40+M3.5 team captained by first time SCTC Captain John Kim was in a 3 way tie for first place in their flight but lost in the tie break statistics. This photo shows John Kim and his team at a break in the battle.
