Cal Club Tennis is a co-ed, competitive, club tennis team. In the fall, we travel locally and play against other schools in the Bay Area, and in the spring we compete in Cali Cup and Nationals! We are the eight time defending Northern California Sectionals champions and finished second at Nationals last year. We're looking forward to the fall season!
Cal Club Tennis sent three teams to Arizona to participate in the Wildcat Winter Classic on January 19-20. A Team lost a heartbreaker to a very good New Mexico team, and ended up taking first place in the silver bracket. C Team avenged A Team by taking out New Mexico and finishing third overall, while B Team took out ASU in an extremely close final to win the championship. Congratulations to everyone who came and played some good tennis in the desert!
An undefeated fall season ends with a Cal-Cal final at Sectionals! Cal Gold narrowly edged Cal Blue in the final to win the championship, while Cal White took 4th and Cal Gray took 7/8th.
Tryouts are held in the fall each year. We do not hold tryouts in the spring.
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 have practices three times a week on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 7-9pm, and Saturdays from 1-3pm. 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, Berkeley Tennis Association (formerly Tennis at Cal). It's a great group of people for all levels of tennis who just love to play.
