California Community College Tennis
 
I thought I'd start a thread for all us non D-1 to D-3 college players. Post if you played CA Community College and what team you play/played for. I played for Chabot 2004-05 by the way.

Played for Chabot in 1999 (at age 44). Currently coach there. Too bad the Coast Conference has lost so many teams in recent years. MPCC, Canada, CSM, CCSF, SJ City, Ohlone (came back this year with 4 players), West Valley, etc.

I should have played for COS (College of the Sequoias) back in 1981, but I decided to give up tennis and go to UCSB instead, which I kind of regret. Does COS still have a team ?

wow 44! That's great. There is a teaching pro around here that started tennis at age 40, ended up playing on a JC team about the same age as you did. He now is one of the top ranked players in his age group in the area. People ask him where he played his college tennis and he surprises them with his answer.:)

I play against some JC players off and on. I think sometimes yeah I can definitely hang with these guys if I could play tennis regularly and get into shape. Too bad job and family are getting in the way! lol

There's no age limit in D1,2 and 3 either. NCAA may have passed an age rule for tennis in D1(not sure about this) but there was a 60+ year old playing D2 tennis and 30-50 year olds in other sports I have seen.

Julieta 07-03-2008 04:43 PM

I think in D1 you start losing eligibility so there is an age limit. There's a lot of 23 year olds in college tennis but not too much over 25 in D1. D2 and D3 anything goes I think. Someone also told me that if you played another sport, say baseball, it starts over for different sports. So its possible to have played college baseball and then play college tennis at 30 or whatever. I am not 100 percent sure about that though.

Yeah there's no age limit. As long as you haven't used two years of eligibility you can play at the JC level.
I found that most of the "older" players i played in JC tennis were really well rounded. My worst whoopin was against some #1 player who was at least 30 years old. I barely had any unforced errors either! He just laid the smack down lol.

jaggy 07-07-2008 04:37 PM

I went to San Diego City College back when I was a good club player but never considered the team. About 2 years after moving on to SD State I played City Colleges #1 player and killed him like 1 and 1. I wish I had played there now just to say id played college.

I played for Orange Coast College's team last semester and am going to play again in the spring.

shavenyak 07-15-2008 07:05 PM

Pasadena City College 1998 and 1999. Tennis program was disbanded in 1999 because of Title iX and that they couldn't find enough women to play badminton. It may be back, I don't know. Played like #6 singles and #1 doubles. Always better at doubles for some reason.
