About the Club
The Monrovia Tennis Club (MTC) was formalized in 1935 when a group of local tennis players incorporated the Club and purchased the land on Sunset Avenue in the foothills of North Monrovia. The swimming pool was the reservoir that irrigated one of the orange groves that dominated the area; the original tennis court is now used for basketball, roller-skating and other club activities.
Today 80 member families enjoy modern, well-maintained courts (2) that are lit for evening play and screened for privacy. The clubhouse is used for member-sponsored parties and Club sponsored events. Managed by volunteer members the gate guarded grounds allow for families, friends and guests to play tennis, swim, barbeque and enjoy a quiet and safe environment.
Tennis activities include 8 men’s, women’s and mixed tournaments each year. Evening “open” tennis during the summer is enjoyed by men and women and followed by a barbecue; beginners and seasoned players alike enjoy weekly tennis group lessons and practices. Men’s doubles tennis occupies Saturday mornings; women’s on Wednesdays and families on Sunday afternoons leaves the courts open for individual matches.
