Club Programs 2023
The FFTC offers a variety of programs to accommodate various levels of play for all members as noted below. We encourage all members to contact the Program Convenors to sign up for a program(s) that interests you or if you have any questions.
There are a variety of Open Play days and times being offered with each session catering to various levels of play. These sessions are a great way to experience different partners, and more importantly, to get to know other members of the club. We encourage you to contact the appropriate Convenor to let them know if you'll be attending to ensure there will be enough players to fill each court. You will also be added to the Convenors' email list for them to let you know of any announcements or changes to the schedule. It’s recommended to please check your player rating using the self-rating rating guide to see which session will meet your level of play and enjoyment:

The round robin format cycles players with different partners promoting an equal level of play on each court in a relaxed and fun tennis environment.

A schedule is established showing when each player will play, and includes a spare list. Scheduled players are responsible for organizing their replacement if they need to cancel from the supplied spare list.

If you cannot commit to play on a regular basis, please indicate if you want to be on a waiting list to sub in when needed.
