Like the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end. But not with ALTA! It’s time to get excited because just as our season has ended for 2020, the Sunday Women’s League registration is just around the corner. Don’t forget to pay your ALTA dues for 2021, which is necessary to be added to a Sunday Women’s League roster. It’s still the best tennis deal in town. Honestly, where else can you have a year of fun for one low price of $30?
If you are a player looking for a team or a team looking for some players, both opportunities can be found on the ALTA website. This is a great function of the updated ALTA website, so we strongly encourage you to access this feature. Just go to altatennis.org.
Once you are on the home page, you can scroll down to “Find a Team Today.” Click on the button — Find Players/Teams. That takes you to the main page to help players looking for teams and teams who need players. Just fill out the drop-down choices which include the year, season, league, gender, metro area, city or area, and zip code.
One other great feature of altatennis.org is ALTA’s team management system. I want to personally encourage you to use our new system to manage everything you need for league play. It is user-friendly and takes all the guesswork out of lineups, schedules, and standings. It provides fewer forfeits and mistakes, and it’s all right at your fingertips.
I hear all the time that ladies have joined teams, enjoyed playing tennis, get great exercise, but so many say the friendships they have made are everlasting. Life, after all, was meant for good friends and great adventures.
ALTA makes both happen.
