Q. I'm new to the club. How can I find people to play tennis with?
A. The monthly club tournaments provide a great forum for competitive tennis as well as an opportunity to meet up with other tennis players. Additionally, playing on a MVTC sponsored USTA league team allows you to get to know players with similar tennis ability and to play competitive matches against other club teams.
Q. I'm new to the club. What types of activities can I get involved in?
A. Social events held during the tennis season provide an opportunity for members to become better acquainted, socialize, and arrange future matches. Or, if you would like to get involved in helping to run a club tournament or with food at a tournament, your assistance is always welcomed. Please contact Natalie Johnson.
Q. How can I determine my rating?
A. There are two kinds of NTRP ratings: self ratings and computer ratings. Self rating is an informal rating that you will find useful when participating in club tournaments and social events. Computer ratings involve the United States Tennis Association (USTA) and are generated annually after playing two USTA league matches in a season. For more information on the USTA rating system, click here to go to the USTA Norcal website.
do I join a USTA league team?
A. MVTC sponsors men's, women's and mixed USTA teams. To participate, you must be both a MVTC club member and a USTA member. The club also allows non-resident applicants on the waiting list for MVTC membership to play on our USTA teams, if those teams are based out of Cuesta Tennis Center (not Rengstorff).
To sign up for a MVTC sponsored USTA team, find a team here.
