We are pleased to announce that the Club is switching over to the new FFT Ten'Up tennis court reservation system, provided by the FFT, and discontinuing the legacy ADSL system.
Ten'Up is a free service for us, thanks to our FFT affiliation.
For tennis licence holders, the system will be operational very soon. For those who do not hold an FFT licence via the SAC, we are taking the necessary actions.
So what do you need to do? We are in the final stages of configuring Ten'Up and when completed, you will simply need to download the Ten'Up application.
You will discover that everything is clear and perfectly tailor-made to your needs.
More information including tutorials in PDF and FAQs to follow...

You will have seen that the Club is switching over to the new FFT Ten'Up tennis court reservation system and discontinuing the ADSL system.
The Ten'Up service is now up and running for ALL full members, with or without a licence, and you can now download it to your smartphone from the app store (Apple or Android). You can also go on to the Ten’Up website (https://tenup.fft.fr/) and create your account.
(In the coming days the licence holders should also get their missing licences sent over by mail.)
If you put in your SAC email connection and answer your profile questions, and make your profile accessible to other members, Ten’Up will link you up as a SAC member and you will be able to access the SAC Tennis courts to reserve a session.

The Club is investing heavily in the renovation of the clay courts, with courts 1 and 2 done this year, and courts 3 and 4 scheduled for next year.
Courts 1 and 2 have been extensively renovated; as part of the renovation process, the different layers of materials that make up a clay court needs to settle for at least several months.
During this time, clay courts are very fragile. It will be critical for anyone playing on clay courts to strictly apply and respect the court rules and to avoid making holes and marks that would damage them permanently.
The Tennis Committee would like to take this opportunity to remind tennis players of the rules that apply when playing on clay courts:
- Wear the appropriate tennis shoes for clay courts
- Sweep the court with the drag-net at the end of your session
- Water the court in dry weather
- Wear predominantly white
Every year, the men's senior tennis team plays in Division 3 of the Ligue des Hauts-Seine championship (for players ranking usually between 5/6 and 15/3).
We have a few matches at the Club. This Sunday, we are hosting Clamart, a very strong club. 4 clay courts will be reserved for Singles matches between 9 and 11 am, and 2 clay courts for Doubles from 11.30 am to 1 pm.
Thanks for your understanding and you are welcome to come and watch and support your team!
The RAQUETTES FFT 2022 tournament will be taking place between April and June. It is a fun friendly tournament against other clubs of the Hauts de Seine. It is for anyone who wants to enjoy a bit of fun and team spirit and who has a SAC license and is either « non classée », 40, 30/5, or 30/4 and never had a ranking above that. If you have never done any competitive tennis or taken part in a team, now is the time to start!
We are looking for about 2 or 3 more players to make up the team, knowing that on the day there will be 2 singles and 1 doubles so just 4 players but we need some reserves. The 1st round takes place against 3 other clubs and each player plays 1 set against each club. The matches can be played during the week or at weekends.
If you are interested and would like to take part or know more about the tournament, please contact Gigi Cothier ().
We have had loads of fun over the years taking part in the tournament so please help us make up a team this year!
