CTC

The Claremont Club is honored to be the home of the San Gabriel Valley USTA Competition Training Center (CTC). Barry Friedman is the Director of our CTC (one of six in Southern California), with Darren Richer, and Lionel Rival, rounding out the coaching staff. The CTC is a USTA program that invites the best 9 to 13- year-olds in the area to train together. Over the last few years, many of our players here at The Claremont Club have gone on to excel in tennis because of their training in CTC. Keep your eye on our local talent, because the USTA uses this program to pick the next crop of future U.S. Champions.

Grand Prix

One of our most successful programs has been the Friday Night Grand Prix. For many juniors, this is the first real experience in playing in a competitive situation. The requirement to get in this program is being proficient at making a serve and being able to sustain a rally. Rising Stars Level II and Tournament Team II players are the students that are eligible for this Grand Prix experience.
