Tennis Ratings: If you have already played at a SCWDC tennis party, we have your rating on file. If you are not sure of your rating, please contact Jack Tarr (Tennis Professional). At the party, our seasoned tennis raters will give you a rating, and in future parties, you can be accurately placed in a playing group. This is a necessity: at higher skill levels, serves and ground-strokes may be hit hard, and if you aren't ready, that can be dangerous.

Cost: Low cost Tennis Parties are only possible because of the efforts of many SCWDC volunteers. If you enjoy our parties, please consider helping, too.
