League Tennis and more

 High School tennis will begin the week of April 18th, with 2 home matches; April 21st @ 3:00pm (all courts unavailable from 1:00pm on) and April 24th @ 11am (all courts are reserved and unavailable from 9:00am til 6:00pm), please come and support Tiger Tennis. All players, coaches and supporters must wear a mask. We have a great group of young players, we are very excited to see them all in action.
The coaches want to give a HUGE heartfelt shout out to Joseph and Lisa Westover for their enormous donation to Tiger Tennis.  

The 40 & Over Women's tennis team are headed to Tucson June 18- 20 for their Sectional Tournament. Our 3.5 Women's team is captained by Janet Santackas and our 3.5 Men's team is captained by Andy Michnovicz. Congratulations to all of the players and good luck at Sectionals. Also at sectionals, SWS is planning on having a wheelchair tennis exhibition just before the morning matches at 40 & Over Sectionals. So please, if you are at sectionals to play or just to watch, come out early and watch and support some of our SWS wheelchair tennis players.

Soon to begin here in Alamo is "Continuous Mixed doubles". Carl Jones will be running this and more info will be coming out very soon, hopefully lot of ATA members will sign up to play.

Next up is the 55 & Over league, which will start approximately early May, more info will be coming soon. Sectionals for the 55 & Over will be held in El Paso at the El Paso Tennis Club September 10-12, 2021. Nationals for 55 & Over will be held in October in Orlando on clay.

Mixed leagues will start up in June and run partially alongside our 55 & Over league. It will run for several months so any players that have summer travel plans can still have opportunities to get some league matches in. In the past few years we have only been able to field two or three 40 & Over Mixed teams. This year they would love to be able to run an 18 & Over Mixed league! All Mixed leagues have Sectionals Sept. 24-26, 2021 in Surprise, AZ with Nationals to be held in late Oct. or early Nov., depending on NTRP level, in Surprise, AZ as well.
