Stanford Club Tennis is a selective, competitive co-ed tennis team comprised of Stanford undergraduate and graduate students. We are a member of the USTA Norcal Tennis on Campus Series and primarily compete against other Northern California club tennis teams. We placed 9th in the 2022-23 National Championships and 2nd in the 2022-23 Northern California Sectional Championships. The team practices 3 times a week and competes in ~10 tournaments each year. Outside of tennis, we have team dinners, BBQs, hikes, and other social activities. We'd love for you to join our team! See below for information on tryouts.

For those interested in recreational tennis, we provide opportunities to meet other players who enjoy practicing for fun. All members of the Stanford community are welcome to use our Hitting Partner List to find somebody of the same skill level. The club team does not give lessons. If you are interested in lessons, sign up for a P.E. class or contact the stadium for private lessons.


Stanford Club Tennis will hold 3 sessions of new member tryouts for the 2023-2024 year. Come to the Taube Family Tennis Center (625 Campus Drive, Stanford, CA 94305) with your racket and your best game:

How can I join the club?
Stanford Club Tennis is a selective team and we hold tryouts at the beginning of each school year. If you were not able to attend tryouts, send us an email and we may be able to set up another time for you to tryout.
When are practices?
Practices are held Monday from 6:30-8:30pm, Wednesday from 6:30-8:30pm and Friday from 4:30-6:30pm at the Taube Family Tennis Center.
Are practices mandatory?
Members are encouraged to come to practice, but it is not required. Attendance at practice is considered for tournament roster selection, so if you want to play in tournaments come to as many practices as you can!
What are practices typically like?
Practices are structured and usually consist of a combination of drills, games, match play and fitness.
Can anyone come to club tennis practice?
Due to limited court space, club tennis practice is only open to members.
When are tournaments?
The tournament schedule varies from year to year and our season runs from September to May. The three largest tournaments for us are NorCal Sectionals (held in November), Wildcat Winter Classic (held in January in Arizona), and the National Championships (help in April).
How much are team dues?
Club members pay a small fee for dues every year. Dues go toward team uniforms, tournament entry fees, social events, and travel expenses. The team accommodates all members no matter their financial standing.
Does Stanford Club Tennis offer lessons?
No, club tennis does not offer lessons. If you are interested in lessons we encourage you to sign up for a PE class.
