Tennis at the SAC is managed by the Tennis Section Committee.
See this article for details and contact information. (Email: )
The Club has 8 outdoor tennis courts:
- Three all-weather courts, including 1 floodlit,
- Five clay courts
There are also two all-weather courts, including one floodlit, available at the Mare Adam site (a 5-minute drive from the Club).
You will have seen that the Club has switched over to the new FFT Ten'Up tennis court reservation system and discontinued 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.
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 system, like the previous one, has been set so as to be able to reserve a maximum of 2 days in advance.
Only one reservation at a time, once your session has started you have to wait for it to finish to reserve another one.

It is extremely important to have a valid tennis licence less than 3 years old when playing tennis at the Club; FFT Licences for children and adults are not included in the Club's joining fees. Don’t hesitate to contact , if necessary for more information. In addition to the Licence, players are required to have a Medical Certificate less than 3 years old. See the following page on the FFT website: https://www.fft.fr/jouer/se-licencier/certificat-medical. Associated with the licence you must also have a Medical certificate that is also less than three years old. For the next two years, players must fill in an ‘attestation sur l’honneur’ after completing the ‘questionnaire’.
If you wish to play in competitions the medical certificate should include the mention “competition autourisé”. The documents needed may also be downloaded here (see the attachments below): The 2020 Medical Certificate (modele_certificat_medical.pdf); Ministry of Sports questionnaire (forulaire_qs_sport.pdf); Child 'attestation' (modele_attestation_mineur.pdf); Adult 'attestation' (modele_attestation_adulte.pdf).
Tennis Court Rules
Doubles have priority
When courts are busy, singles players should invite, or allow 2 others, to join them.
Proper dress is required
Players are expected to wear proper tennis outfits, with a white shirt or blouse and white socks. Players must wear proper flat-sole tennis shoes on clay courts.
Clay courts must be ‘dragged’ after play
Players are required to maintain the clay courts by ‘dragging’ them and, if necessary, watering them after play.
In addition, when the weather is dry and hot, please also water the court before you play if there has been nobody playing immediately before you.
Clay courts must be protected after heavy rain
‘No play’ notices may be posted up on the courts, after heavy rain, or courts may be locked.
Coaching, matches, tournaments
Courts may be allocated for matches, tournaments or coaching at the discretion of the Tennis Committee.
Visitors are welcome to play anytime during the week all year round, and on Saturday and Sunday mornings before 12 pm, when the clay courts are open.
