With beautiful weather all-year-round, Southern California is the perfect place to improve your tennis game (while getting a nice tan)! Whether or not you are new to the sport, the general club is great fit for all recreational players who are looking for opportunities to play leisurely or competitively. There are no required events for the club; we simply offer as many lessons, hitting sessions, and tournaments as we possibly can for you all to enjoy. Basically, we give you the freedom to come out and play whenever you can!
And remember, feel free to join at any time during the year! Our club welcomes all students, faculty, and other university affiliates at any skill level.

To become a member of the USC Trojan Tennis Club, you must fill out the appropriate paperwork and pay your dues (as outlined below). Please note that you must wear non-marking tennis shoes at all times when using USC courts.
Dues are $30/semester or $50/year. Membership scores you all the benefits shown in the adjacent tab above! You MUST complete all steps before you can participate in any event!
To register for the club you must:
Create an account on USC IM Leagues. Make sure you are under "Clubs" and not "Intramural" and click on "Tennis." You will be asked to log in. Once logged in, please join the team and fill out the appropriate tennis waivers. DO NOT PAY ANYTHING ONLINE (if you find yourself being charged, you are most likely registering for an intramural team and NOT for the Trojan Tennis Club).
Once you have filled out the waiver and filled out the registration forms, you can drop off your dues in the form of cash or checks made payable to “USC Tennis Club.” We will be collecting before our weekly hitting sessions and lessons at the Lyon Center Tennis Courts, which we will announce soon. If you cannot make these times, please contact us and we'll make special accomodations.
We offer several events throughout the semester so that our general club members can meet new people and develop their tennis skills. These events include, but are often not limited to:
To participate in ANY event, you MUST wear non-marking tennis shoes or you will be immediately asked to leave. We need to take care of the courts. Thanks!
Lessons: Will be held contingent on Tournament Team members' availability for beginning and intermediate instruction. As a registered member, you will receive discounted lessons for around $20!
Hitting Sessions: Every week, we will have a hitting session on Wednesday nights from 8-10pm for members of the club organized by our General Club Director. This gives you all great opportunities to build new friendships while competing casually against each other. If you have something you'd like to do or work on, just let them know!
Tournaments: Trojan Tennis Club usually hosts tournament of singles and doubles per semester, depending on the overall level of the General Club.
