Our People

Jim Bethune
Wendy Buckley (Clubhouses)
George Calder
Marion Code
Laura DiSilvestro (Vice Chair, Junior Executive)
Jill Dolishny
Andy Harper (Secretary/Treasurer)
Mark Heinzl

Steve Kopf
Catherine Motz
Bill Pineau
Dave Stevens
Arthur Wolf (Teaching)

Cathie Stauffer (Club Administrator)


A great tradition of our club is the contribution of our junior members in the operational wellness and charisma of the STC. Under the supervision of one of our Board members, the kids on our Junior Executive are responsible for engaging our younger members through various tennis activities, fund-raising initiatives, and social events.

Any junior members (13 – 18 years of age) who are interested in joining the Junior Executive should come to the first meeting of the season at the Beach clubhouse. If you’re not able to attend, send us an email to let us know of your interest.


Since 1956, we have placed a high value on the quality of the tennis instruction we provide to our members. Most of our instructors advanced through the STC programs, starting as youngsters themselves in the beginner morning lessons at the Beach courts.

2019 Senior Instructors:

Matt Ross (Supervisor, 11-18 Juniors and Adult programs)
Megan Killeen (Supervisor, U10 Juniors)
Sarah Helsby, Campbell MacKinnon, Mike Ross, Harry Wood


Our friendly clubhouse staff is ready to welcome you to the club and to answer any questions you may have about the STC.

All of our staff and members of the Board of Directors adhere to the OTA Abuse Policy.
