What is Cal Cup?
Dating back to the days when the gays weren’t the only ones who played tennis in short shorts, the first ever Cal Cup competition was held in October 1986 in San Diego. The top 24 players from the San Francisco (GLTF), San Diego (SDTF), and Los Angeles (LATA) gay/lesbian/bi/trans leagues battle it out over two days in 36 singles and 36 doubles matches. This year, Cal Cup will be held on October 15-16 at the Balboa Tennis Club, San Diego, CA.
Who’s Eligible to Try Out?
GLTF members with at least a strong USTA rating of 4.0+ for men or 4.5+ for women, which is equivalent to GLTA rating of A+ for men or Open for women, are eligible to try out. Camaraderie is very important to our team, so we’re also looking for committed players with great attitude on and off the court.
