Club Philosophy 

Nestled in the foothills of Santa Barbara, SBTC offers full-service amenities for tennis, swim, and fitness. Our friendly atmosphere will allow you to not only stay in shape but enjoy socializing in a beautiful setting.

Our philosophy at the Santa Barbara Tennis Club is to create and maintain an incredibly beautiful environment that allows for and promotes health, happiness, and community for all members, guests, and employees. To reflect these ideals we embrace one basic principle: to be a club.

Any facility with tennis courts and a swimming pool can be a tennis club. But to be a club is something special. It is the creation of a family-like community--treating everyone who walks through the front doors as an honored guest and member of our family. It is keeping the club clean like you would your home. It is caring about yourself and others so that all can enjoy and experience life to the fullest. To be a Club is to be a safe place for our children to grow and learn the values of sportsmanship and fair play. To be a club is to be friends with, and support, the larger community. To be a club is to reflect the highest level of integrity and ethical standards in all our relationships. And lastly, to be a club is to have fun. Our lives are short and we are honored with the opportunity to be part of a truly unique environment. Our hope is to leave this environment healthier than we found it. 

Being an organization surrounded by personal health and wellness, our goal is to unconditionally accept our members and guests into our family, while providing them with the opportunity to have a truly enriching experience each time they visit. We hope that whoever walks through our doors leaves feeling revitalized and better than when they arrived.
