SACTA Mission Statement:

To coordinate and promote the recreational game of tennis and to provide opportunities for all to participate at a level consistent with their personal goals.

SACTA HISTORY: Organized tennis has been played in St. Andrews, at the Algonquin Hotel courts, as early as 1912, in which year silver cups for the Gentleman's and Lady's Championships were presented by Mr. R.J. Christie, Esq. and Sir Thomas Tait.

The St. Andrews Tennis Club was formed in 1975, still playing on the Algonquin courts, and has continued intermittently until today. In 1988-89, two new courts were constructed on Town land behind the Sir James Dunn Arena, and these are the ones that we play on today. The connection with the hotel (now the Fairmont Algonquin) continues, as they allow us to use their courts during tournaments. This was the case up until 2010 when the hotel courts were turned into a putting green.

In 2008 the St. Andrews Tennis Club became the St. Andrews Community Tennis Association (SACTA).

General Notice 2021

Due to COVID 19 continuing no programs can be planned. Should COVID restrictions be eased to the extent that normal activities are allowed updated information will be posted here and on Facebook.

2021 Membership Notice

Our 2020 season was significantly impacted by the COVID 19 restrictions and no dues were collected. However, a significant amount of tennis was still played with proper COVID prototcols despite not being able to participate in the usual club events and activities.

The executive has decided that dues will be charged for the 2021 season.

The dues are the same; $40.00 for an individual and $60.00 for a family.

There is a slight change to the etransfer email address:

When an etransfer is sent to this email it is automatically deposited into the SACTA account. No password needs to be sent. We would prefer an etransfer or a cheque.

Cheques may be sent to: SACTA Treasurer, P.O. Box 3908, St. Andrews E5B 3S8

Once again COVID protocols currently in place do not allow for our usual activities – social tennis, lessons, tournaments and the youth camp. As the season progresses, we hope to be able to hold some of these activities depending on the pandemic situation.

We appreciate your support an understanding during the continuing pandemic.
