Tennis Club Aquatics Teams -


Court Reserve is open for registration.

The Chapel Hill Tennis Club is thrilled to have the TCAT Penguins return for SUMMER 2024! TCAT participates in the Chapel Hill Summer Swim League and offers quality coaching and technique instruction. The goal of our team is to facilitate improvement of swimming skills in an enjoyable atmosphere while emphasizing healthy competition and good sportsmanship. We strive to provide fun, friendship, and love of swimming for children of all skill levels, novice to expert. TCAT is open to children ages 4-18 who can swim 25m (one pool length). If your child is new to swimming, they may participate in our Lil’ Penguins program, a bridge to our TCAT swimming.

For those wishing to participate in swim meets, we also recommend registering with the Swimmingly app for a modest fee of $15 per child for the season. This system provides electronic timing and results. Prior to the first meet, all registered TCAT swimmers will receive a link to the Swimmingly app registration. Meet participation is optional.

TCAT will be using

  • the Speedo Cyclone suit in blue and silver. We will have various sizes to try on. Females have the option of the crossover or flyback, boys will have the jammer.
