Kaneohe Yacht Club

Tennis Fleet

The Tennis Fleet's mission is to promote the sport of tennis and KYC camaraderie by organizing and conducting fun tennis tournaments and terrific social activities. All KYC members are invited to join the Tennis Fleet……the yearly dues are $20 per person.

The Tennis Fleet has been around almost as long as the Club itself. We have close to one hundred members, half of whom have retired from playing, but still participate in the social functions. Most of the Tennis Fleet members are active or retired sailors. Every month the Tennis Fleet hosts a mixed doubles round robin tournament. Everyone is welcome to enter, including non-members for a $10 fee, and partners change with each game (schedule arranged by fleet coordinators). Tournaments are followed in the evening with a potluck dinner in the Longhouse. There are also two special annual tournaments that are named after Yacht Club Alumnae. The Tom Collins Men’s and Women’s Doubles Tournament is named after a member from many years back who epitomized good sportsmanship. Later in the year there is the Clare Lang Mixed Doubles Tournament. It is named after the Club’s only female Commodore and who was also a great tennis player and sailor. All competitors in these two tournaments must be members of KYC and the KYC Tennis Fleet.

We invite interested players to join us on Saturday and Sunday mornings for pick up play. It's a great time to meet the other players and all levels are welcome. Come try it out!!!!
