BCSTC employs a tennis pro each summer. They provide free clinics for all members, organize multiple junior programs and club tournaments, conduct occasional mixers for members to meet and play, offer adult drills as well as one-on-one lessons at a conservative hourly rate.
BCSTC is active in USTA league (cost is $40 per adult member that plays), and Junior Team Tennis (cost is $175 on/before April 17th or $200 after April 17th) play. USTA rates players according to their skill level. A 3.5 player is 'solid', with a good serve, forehand and backhand, but perhaps somewhat inconsistent. A 4.0 player hits harder overall, and is very consistent. We typically fill teams in the following categories:
Mens 4.0, 3.5 & 3.0 summer and twilight, Womens 4.0, 3.5, 3.0 & 2.5 summer and twilight, Mixed doubles 6.0, 7.0 and 8.0 summer, Mixed doubles 6.5 and 7.5 fall. Contact our tennis coordinator, Pam Gelwick firstname.lastname@example.org for info.
