Hosting a team out of Willow Creek Tennis Club (WCTC) facility in Willow Creek (WC) is considered a PRIVILEGE by the HOA Boards, as teams are given priority over residents who may want to use the courts during assigned matches. Because of this, teams are required to give priority to adding residents of the participating HOAs on their teams.
Here is some specific information about how this works, please review the official Policies and Procedures of the Willow Creek Tennis Club for additional details.
Any resident of WC1, WC2, or WC3 who wants to play USTA/CTA tennis can add themselves to the Wanna Play List by filling out the form on the WCTC website. Residents can add themselves any time of the year. As new resident names are added to the list, they are shared with the appropriate WC captains.
Residents who were rostered on a WC team the previous year and played at least 1 official USTA/CTA match and intend to stay on their team do not have to add their names to the Wanna Play List. Players who have ratings changes (up or down), players who did not play at least 1 USTA/CTA match the previous year for any reason, players who are new to tennis, or new to the neighborhood must add their names to the list.
It is the captain’s decision regarding how many players to add, beyond threshold, and which residents from the Wanna Play List, to add to their teams. An exception is a resident who has been on the Wanna Play List for more than one year (i.e., a resident that added their name to the list before the December 10th deadline but did not find a team to join for the upcoming season). These residents must be given priority over residents who have been on the Wanna Play List for less than a year (i.e., a resident that added their name to the list after the December 10th deadline for the upcoming season).
Non-Residents will never be removed from their team during a season if the rules in this section are followed.
Until December 10th
On or after December 11th
* Threshold refers to the number 50% greater than the number of players that play in any given match, rounding up as necessary. Examples:
