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.

Happy belated birthday to all the January folks. Happy birthday to all you February folks and Happy Valentines Day to everyone. 

What’s new: Candace Cormie and Carl Jones are our newest board members. We are very excited about the future of the ATA and look forward to lots of tennis fun. As you all know, Covid-19 restrictions continue to dictate our social gatherings within the ATA, we are hoping things will change for the positive very soon.

ATA dues: deadline was January 31st, you can give your dues to any board member, or you can you’re your dues to ATA PO Box, 684, Alamogordo, NM 88310, or you can drop your dues in an envelope into the new secure lock box at the main shed.

Used tennis balls: if anyone has a need for used tennis balls, we always have an abundance of them in the shed. Please contact a board member if you’d like some.

Night time tennis: is anyone interested? If so, please email us.

Ladder tennis: is anyone interested in playing? If so, please contact Carl at CJTS1up@gmail.com or email the ATA. We have done ladder tennis in the past, basically your goal is to work your way up the list of players by challenging someone, should you challenge and win, you'd take the spot of the player you beat. (More explanation is available if necessary).

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.
