Your Tennis & Management committees

are also working on making lighting available for courts 8 & 3, although the timing of this is still unclear due to the already extensive works that will be undertaken by the club this Winter. In addition, we are also working on redoing the lines of court 3 to improve safety and tennis experience on this court. We will communicate on this at a later stage.

 

Finally, your Tennis committee is working in parallel on improving the Tennis coaching experience, especially for the kids, with tennis committee members participating in the evaluation of kids’ Tennis levels, and with the centralization of all coaching demands to be managed by the club's office in order to harmonize levels within coaching lessons as well as organize events for kids. A feedback loop on coaching is also being worked on. We will also communicate more on this topic at a later stage, so watch this space…

Thanks for your attention and enjoy your next game of tennis!

Ladies’ teams

The club has two teams which take part in league events from March through to June.

Both tournaments take place during the week on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

The Raquettes team is for players who are ‘non classée, 40 or 30/5’. There are 2 singles and one doubles.

The ALT’s team is for players who are ‘non classée and up to 30/1’. There are 3 singles and one doubles.

Anybody interested in taking part, please contact Sally Cangardel.

 

Men’s teams

Sadly, the club has only one team competing in the summer team matches organized by the Ligue des hauts de Seine. Our team was in the 5th division last year, and will remain there for next year's matches. Matches against other Ligue clubs consist in four singles and two doubles, played on Sunday morning, and typically from early May to early June. There generally are only five encounters played by the team during this period, of which two to three on our clay courts. We would welcome gladly your support in order to try and make it to the 4th division in 2012! So please come and see our matches at the club!
 
People interested in joining the team or in creating a second men's team playing under the SAC's colours, please contact Benjamin Sharp by email.


Children’s teams

The club has four Junior teams taking part in FFT events in the Spring and Autumn. For more information see the section on the site entitled Junior tennis. 

 

Tennis licences

It is extremely important to have a valid tennis licence when you play tennis at the Club and therefore FFT Licences for children and adults are now included in the overall joining fee of the Club. Don’t hesitate to contact Christine de Fontgalland email, if necessary.
