About San Carlos Tennis Club (SCTC)

The Club was organized in 1975 to promote tennis activities in the area. The Club operates in cooperation with the San Carlos School District (SCSD), headquartering and organizing most SCTC events at SCSD's Arundel School tennis courts (adjacent to Arguello Park).  Some activities are organized or overflow onto nearby Carlmont High School and City of San Carlos and/or other school courts, as needed.

A weekend tournament is offered in most months, typically providing an enjoyable mixture of social fun and competitive tennis. Tournaments are primarily in mixed or gender doubles format with rotating or fixed partnerships, but may occasionally include singles or junior events.  Tournaments are generally open to the public, and we welcome new participants to join us. Tournament entrants are placed in divisions based on level of play (NTRP and past tournament results), and handicapping may be applied for level mismatches.


Organized social tennis and party events are scheduled each year, including:

1. Weekly Drop-in Doubles, four days a week.
2. Fun Days (informal drop-in doubles) on the major holiday weekends.
3. Social leagues most nights of the week, plus Team Tennis on the weekend.
4. Annual Away Trip on a fall weekend.
5. Holiday Party, including a cocktail hour, catered dinner and dancing.
Drop-ins and Fun Days are also typically open to non-members, and provide excellent introductions to the Club.

TEAM TENNIS (Intra-Club):

This program provides a great opportunity for members to get to know other members. At least six teams are formed and play on the second Saturday of each month, April through September.

The challenge ladders provide an excellent opportunity for members to measure their level of play against other Club members. Ladders are maintained for Men's and Women's Singles, Men's and Women's Doubles and Mixed Doubles as interest warrants. You can reach SCTC's Ladder coordinators at ladders@sancarlostennis.com
