More USTA Leagues in March

USTA teams will be registering soon (beginning Jan 24) in these leagues: Adult 18+, Adult 18+ Daytime, and Adult 55+.  All of these leagues have separate mens and womens leagues.  For the full USTA League calendar, go here.  

If you want to register a team, check with our USTA Director, John Swiecki, to be certain the club has court time.  San Carlos teams will be listed on this USTA page as they are registered. For help in getting onto a team, sign up here.  Contact the listed captain to reserve a spot on the roster.

Want to Play on a College Team?

Mission College in Santa Clara is looking for two women and two men to play on their team this spring semester.  This is a great opportunity for someone who would like to play college tennis but either didn't think they could play at that level or who started the game later on.  The season starts in mid-January, with matches beginning Feb. 1.  The season lasts until early April.  To play, a player must be enrolled in 12 units in the spring semester.  Team members receive 3 units for being on the team, so three more classes.  The coaches are very flexible about attending practices (we really need players for the team matches). If interested, contact Scott Howard, the Head Tennis Coach. (650) 281-3680

Safe Play Policies - Oh My, Omicron!

The Omicron 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!).
