Santa Clara Tennis Club

SCTC members who are interested in captaining a team must contact the club USTA Representative at least two weeks prior to the close of team registration, as designated by USTA, to seek permission to run a team. The earlier the request, the better the chance of board approval.

The SCTC board will then vote to approve which teams will be allowed. Due to limitations set by Lifetime Tennis and other factors, not all team requests may be granted. Late requests may be allowed on a case by case basis if there is still space available.

  • Captains (or a designated representative) must attend all SCTC board meetings, in order to be kept up on city and club requirements. Currently all board meetings are conducted online using the Discord app
  • Captains/teams are required to perform some voluntary service for the club during the year. Examples are helping at club functions such as mixers, running/assisting at club tournaments.
  • The board and the captain must mutually agree on what service will be acceptable.

USTA Captains must read the following documents and verify that they understand the guidelines set forth at Santa Clara Tennis Center . Refer to Lifetime Tennis at Santa Clara Tennis Center for the latest up to date information.
