About

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 3rd in the 2017-18 National Championships and 2nd in the last two 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.
