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 late October/early November, weather permitting. The club has more than 500 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.

The club offers three basic categories of membership: Family, Single, and Junior. 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. To join the club, you will need to fill out an application (click below) and provide proof of Cambridge residency. Completed application with proof of Cambridge residency will be reviewed by the membership committee. Applicants will be placed on our waitlist and contacted when their names rise to the top of the waiting list. Offers are made annually, in the spring, at membership renewal time once the number of openings is known. You will also need two letters from existing club members to act as your proposers. If you do not know any club members, let us know ( and we will be in touch. Please keep in mind that use of the club and its facilities are for members only and their guests but that we do allow non-members to take lessons at the club, based on capacity.
