USTA Team Tennis matches are held at the Ladera courts beginning in January - October.  Team tennis is played against other clubs in the mid-Peninsula area.  Courts 2, 3 & 4 are reserved for these matches.  Teams are set up according to ability using the NTRP system.


All USTA teams must consist of  a minimum 75% Ladera Recreation District members.  Non-LRD members must pay $125 for each team they participate on.  Non-LRD members who have paid this fee may participate in any team clinics that are given by an approved LRD instructor and may participate in any captain -scheduled practice. 

Team Captains:

  • Must be a member of the LRD
  • Must collect all non-member fees and submit to the Club Managers before any courts can be reserved.
  • Must submit a roster of all players indicating members/non-members.
  • Must co-ordinate with other USTA captains before scheduling any matches.  All schedules must be approved by the managers before any dates are posted or courts are reserved.
  • Must read and be familiar with all LRD tennis rules
  • Courts may not be reserved for team practices.  Team practices must follow LRD rules - i.e. courts are taken on a first-come-first-serve basis;  at least one person on a court must be an LRD member.
  • Courts may be reserved for clinics (posted play times include warm up practice) subject to approval by the Managers
  • Clinics may only be offered by an LRD approved instructor
