May happenings

Well folks, our May exchange has been canceled due to the Corona Virus and NM's restrictions. Not much has been going on as far as ATA tennis. People are still going out to the courts and playing, however being very careful. Exercise is important to staying healthy.  Happy birthday to all the May babies. Happy Cinco de Mayo as well, perhaps we can celebrate April and May at a later date. Til then, be well everyone.

January happenings


Evelyn and Janet's Kidz club will begin today, January 17th if the weather holds up. 4:00-5:30.  Evelyn is accepting donations for this semester ($10 which normally goes towards balls) for anyone who would like to make a donation. Other January’s dates are: January 31.  The email address is for this club is: kidztennisalamo@gmail.com and info as well as pictures can be found here.  



Reminder that ATA dues are due by January 31st, your dues can be given to any board member or mailed to ATA, PO Box 684, Alamogordo, NM 88311.

Play Day Hosts: We are in need of hosts for, May, Aug. Sept. Nov & Dec. Bernice said that February Valentine's theme (Candace and Garett), March (Patsy), April (Laura M) June and July are spoken for. Please contact Bernice If you’d like to host a play day, we greatly appreciate your help. 


Let's get playing:  Tennis leagues are just around the corner.  If you are interested in playing on a team, captaining a team, please contact Allison Deputy at deputy@southwest.usta.com.  It would be so great if Alamogordo could put their own team together, captaining isn't that difficult, I find that putting a line-up out is the toughest part. If not for the men's or women's leagues, perhaps we could put a mixed doubles team together??? I'd captain one if I had the players willing to commit. 

Tennis exchanges: Yes, we plan on continuing with this. We know that Alto exchange (August) is always fun, so why not bring back the I-70 exchange. If interested in helping with these exchanges, please let Janet or Sintra know. 

Charles and the H.S. tennis players are now practicing 5 days a week, 4:00-6:00.  January 24th and 25th a clinic will take place for the H.S. students by a tennis Pro from Canada. For more information, contact Coach Powell.  All ATA members are welcome to come and watch.
