Hello! This is Cindy Liu and Anthony Busacca, your Cal Club Tennis captains for the 2017-2018 season. We have been on the team since our freshman year and can attest that it has been one of our greatest experiences at Berkeley. We can't wait to meet all of the great players trying out this fall and we're excited for the year we have ahead of us! Go Bears!
Our annual tryout tournament is usually held on a weekend in early September. Make sure to stop by our booth at Caltopia and check back here for updates!
There is no minimum or maximum number, and it varies from year to year. We take individuals based off of their overall fit with the team as well as talent level, so there are no limitations.
Club Tennis is all about putting in as much as you want to get out of it! Many activities are voluntary and flexible. We understand that your first priority is school, so there's no hard feelings if you can't make certain events. We have optional practices twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 7-9pm. Although these practices aren't mandatory, it is important to know that our captains are constantly evaluating the contributions each individual makes to the team. Also, regional and national tournaments require members to have played a minimum amount of previous tournaments to qualify, so please keep that in mind.
Don't worry, there's always next year! Each year we have a huge number of crazy talented people come out, which means our decision is always extremely tough. In the meantime, you should definitely consider joining Cal's intramural tennis club, Tennis at Cal. It's a great group of people for all levels of tennis who just love to play.
