Make-ups and refunds?

There are no refunds or class credits. However, we have a make-up policy that allows students to make up missed classes Monday through Friday during the same month (has to be scheduled in advance); Make-up classes can NOT be transferred to the following month. In case of heavy rains, additional make up classes will be added on weekends. Please inform Michelle when you are coming for a make-up.

Cancellations For Adults

You may cancel/change your reservation 24 hours or more before the class start time with no penalty. Canceling under this 24hr window or a ‘no show’ will result in a loss of your payment. Capped at 8 participants per clinic.

What to bring?

Sports clothing and tennis shoes are required for all the students. Bring your own tennis racket (demos may be provided if needed) or buy at our local tennis store, Seaside Rackets, with our recommendations.

Can my child attend on a non-registered day?

Students MUST attend on their registered day(s) only. Requesting to makeup a class on a non-registered day may be allowed but must be approved by Michelle first and only if space is available.

San Dieguito Tennis Club Usage:

You are not allowed to use the facility besides junior and adult classes with Michelle Okhremchuk, unless you are a member of SDTC.

Parents on Court:

During each class, there is plenty of seating for parents outside near the tennis court, as long as there are no distractions to the students. Please help us keep the kids focused!

Keep your kids close to you when they are outside the courts. Cars pass quite near the junior courts.


Pick up your trash when you leave.

Leave your dogs at home. No dogs are allowed on club property.

Turning off your headlights when parked. When waiting to pick up your kids during twilight and dark hours, switch your lights off. It is difficult to play tennis on Court 7 when headlights are beaming right into the court.

What is USTA NTRP Rating?

An NTRP Rating is a numerical indicator of tennis-playing ability, from 1.5 (beginner) through 7.0 (touring pro), which aligns with a set of general characteristics that break down the skills and abilities of each level, in 0.5 increments. Ratings are generated by play in USTA Adult Divisions of 18 & Over, 40 & Over, 55 & Over, 65 & Over, Mixed 18 & Over, Mixed 40 & Over and Mixed 55 & Over. In some sections, results from USTA Sanctioned Tournaments and additional leagues may be included in the Rating calculation. Ratings help establish a player’s NTRP skill level after only a few matches and do not change dramatically. Rather, they slowly increase or decrease over time as they reflect consistent player skill levels as exhibited through play results.
