Volunteers are why the Mountain View Tennis Club is one of the best public tennis clubs in the Bay Area. Our tournaments are well run, fun, and have good food. We have tennis clinics, racquet demos, and social events. Not to mention our two Dinners/General Meetings we have every year as a benefit of membership. We are proud of a 50 year history as a volunteer-run club. Join us!

50th Anniversary Fall General Meeting and Tennis Ball Dinner-Dance

Our 2016 Fall General Meeting is planned for the evening of Saturday, September 17th. The cost is $35 per person. This year it is combined with a Tennis Ball celebration of our 50th anniversary honoring all our members and past members.

Registration and drinks will start at 6:00 pm with dinner being served at 6:30. We will have a brief General Meeting at 7pm, followed by announcements, photo ops with our past presidents in attendance, slideshow, socializing and DJ music through the decades until 9pm.

August Tournament Summary

We had the triumphant return of our singles tournament with 25 players. 16 Men and 9 Women in 4 divisions. The Mens draw had some last minute requests but we were unable to accommodate due to the limit of 8 players per division. Lesson here is to always register early to guarantee your spot. The weather was good, food tasty, and the tennis fun. We introduced a World Team Set to 5 games option to speed things along which some players appreciated.

August Tournament Draw and Format

Welcome to the return of the MVTC Singles Tournament. We have a good turnout with 24 participants with 4 divisions. Mens’ Division I has 4.0 to 5.0 players. Mens’ Division II has 3.0 to 3.5 players. Women’s ratings range from 3.0 to 4.0. Because we had 9 women, I had to split the women’s draw into 2 divisions. Please see the drawsheets for your start time. Most people will be starting at 8:30 AM. Check-in and warmup time will be 8 to 8:15 AM. Please show up early and on time as we want to get started on time at 8:30 AM. Warmup limited to 10 min.
