We had our last tournament of the year with our Grand Prix Invitational Tournament on Saturday, Nov 12th. The Invitational Tournament is meant to reward players who have actively participated in MVTC tournaments throughout the year. 40 points were the requirement for entry, typically a semifinal showing or team tennis win.
Volunteers are why the Mountain View Tennis Club is one of the best public tennis clubs in the Bay Area. Our tournaments are well-run, fun, and have good food. We have tennis clinics, racquet demos, social events, and two Dinners/General Meetings every year as a benefit of membership. We are proud to have a 50 year history as a volunteer-run club. Join us!
Please arrive at 8:30 am for check-in, warm-up, and breakfast on Sat November 12 for our Grand Prix Invitational. We will try to start on time at 9 AM. Currently, we have 15 people so we have 5 rounds with 3 people sitting out per round. Sets will be World Team Tennis format/no let court/1st to 4 points/4-4- play 9 point tiebreaker 2-2-2-3. Best of 4 out of 5 rounds will count toward top 3 finishers in Men and Womens. Tiebreakers with same score will be determined by head to head and then games loss and coin flip.
MVTC 50th Anniversary Weekend – What a Blast!
Mountain View Tennis Club celebrated 50 years as a non-profit, all volunteer, community organization last month with a weekend of fun tennis and an evening of dinner and dancing. Organized by Perry Lim and Jeremy Chen, the Saturday & Sunday morning team tennis events were competitive and well attended. A big thank you to Peet's Coffee and Hobee's Restaurant, for providing the morning coffee and coffee cake both days. A real treat! And a very big thank you to Mike Rodgers, who volunteered his expert chef skills and barbecued up a wonderful tri tip lunch and delicious garden salads.

Dear MVTC Interclub players,
Thank you all for joining us for a fun Interclub match with San Carlos. Due to your efforts we won a tightly contested tournament vs San Carlos by a slim margin of 183 to 174 games and retained custody of our Killer Squirrel. The teams were evenly matched and the San Carlos team were good players and great sportspeople.
Dear MVTC members, I trust all of you are having a great summer and enjoying tennis. MVTC has a lot of activity going on with 4 USTA teams for the next season, tournaments in July and August and an Interclub vs San Carlos where MVTC won our Killer Squirrel back.
Our 2016 Fall General Meeting is planned for the evening of Saturday, September 17th. The cost is $35 per person. This year it is combined with a Tennis Ball celebration of our 50th anniversary honoring all our members and past members.
Registration and drinks will start at 6:00 pm with dinner being served at 6:30. We will have a brief General Meeting at 7pm, followed by announcements, photo ops with our past presidents in attendance, slideshow, socializing and DJ music through the decades until 9pm.
We had the triumphant return of our singles tournament with 25 players. 16 Men and 9 Women in 4 divisions. The Mens draw had some last minute requests but we were unable to accommodate due to the limit of 8 players per division. Lesson here is to always register early to guarantee your spot. The weather was good, food tasty, and the tennis fun. We introduced a World Team Set to 5 games option to speed things along which some players appreciated.
Welcome to the return of the MVTC Singles Tournament. We have a good turnout with 24 participants with 4 divisions. Mens’ Division I has 4.0 to 5.0 players. Mens’ Division II has 3.0 to 3.5 players. Women’s ratings range from 3.0 to 4.0. Because we had 9 women, I had to split the women’s draw into 2 divisions. Please see the drawsheets for your start time. Most people will be starting at 8:30 AM. Check-in and warmup time will be 8 to 8:15 AM. Please show up early and on time as we want to get started on time at 8:30 AM. Warmup limited to 10 min.
