Joining the Cambridge Tennis Club

We welcome your interest in the Cambridge Tennis Club (CTC).

Founded in 1954 as a non-profit private club, the CTC rents the premises from the Cambridge Skating Club, a separate organization. Courts are available for play from late April/early May until early November, weather permitting. The club has approximately 440 members and is entirely supported by fees paid by them. Contributions from club members also underwrite a very successful community outreach program for underprivileged Cambridge children.

Any Cambridge resident over the age of 21 may become a member. The club offers five basic categories of membership: Family, Single, Junior, Associate Family, and Associate Single. A family membership includes a domestic partner and unmarried children under the age of 26 residing in the household. A junior member must be under the age of 21, with neither parent being a club member. Typically a family or a single person first becomes an Associate member, with most but not quite all of the rights of a full member. When the number of full members drops, an appropriate number of Associate members are invited to become full members.

The CTC has a simple membership process. A proposer and one seconder (both current Full club members) write letters on your behalf. Your proposer completes an application form and submits it, accompanied by the proposing letter and seconding letter and required evidence of Cambridge residency, to the Membership Committee. If you would like to join but do not know any members personally, please inquire about the Meet & Greet Open Houses.  Pre- and post COVID we organize Meet & Greet Open Houses twice a year.  If you have sent in your application and an offer for membership is coming close we will ask two existing full members to give you a call for a short informal chat and after this they will write a recommendation for you.  Contact Shauna Maclaughlin and Faith Moore, Co-Chairs of the Membership Committee or Marcus Lewis, General Manager.

Please keep in mind that use of the club and its facilities are for members only and their guests.  This includes participating in any instructional programs.
