Hello! This is Keiko and Rohan, your Cal Club Tennis captains! We're excited for the season and ready to meet the next generation of club tennis stars. 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.
