By Cathy Gonzales, Senior Day League Vice President
Playing tennis on a Senior Day Men’s team or a Senior Day Women’s team is a wonderful opportunity for spring tennis fun. There are Senior Day teams at levels all the way from AA1 to C3. This is an enjoyable ALTA league that plays in the spring and fall. The women play at 10 a.m. on Tuesdays, and the men play at 10 a.m. on Wednesdays.
The Senior Day Leagues only play three lines of doubles for each match. So, all you need are eight players to form a roster. Since there are only three lines, matches typically are over by 1 p.m., so the rest of the day is open. ALTA members may join a Senior Day team any time during the year of their 55th birthday.
The Senior Day League is a good way to meet new friends and to play within your own age group. The matches are fun and competitive. As the Senior Day Leagues continue to grow, that should mean less travel for matches. Registration for the spring season begins on Friday, Jan. 1, 2021 and ends on Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2021. So, help spread the word and help grow our Senior Day Leagues. Introduce your friends to your team, or start a new team since this is ALTA’s only adult league where you only need eight players to form a team. The only requirement is to be 55 years young or to be turning 55 in 2021.
