Tennis Club Aquatics Teams - "TCAT"

Court Reserve is open for registration.

The Chapel Hill Tennis Club is thrilled to welcome our new swim team for summer 2023: the TCAT Penguins! 

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 can swim a few yards but cannot complete a full lap, they may participate in our Junior Penguins program, a bridge to our TCAT swimming.

Registration Overview

Registration is now open. Once you register, your method of payment on file with the Chapel Hill Tennis Club (checking account, credit card, or invoice for year-round members) will be charged for swim team fees.


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.

You may register for either TCAT or Junior Penguins through Court Reserve and your account will be charged for swim team fees.
