Tennis News - Clay courts & rules

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

Tennis News - Match at home on Sunday 22 May

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).

Thanks for your understanding and you are welcome to come and watch and support your team!

And maybe also a gentle reminder of our tennis rules (see below).

Ladies Tennis News - FFT "RAQUETTES" tournament

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!

Work on Tennis Courts

The Club is well advanced in the renewal of its tennis facilities: Court 3 in 2021; Courts 1 and 2 completely renewed this year, with 4 and 5 to follow in 2023.
The work on Courts 1 and 2 is advancing well, overseen by our team of Philippe Ayme-Jouve, Raphael Kahane, Mikael Jayet, and Roland Tchertoff. The new courts will be ready for this season. 
We look forward to welcoming current and new tennis players in the Spring!
