Player Banquet
We invite players and their guests to join us at Abel's on the Lake for a fun night.  We will have great raffle items, and it all benefits Out Youth.  Cocktail hour starts at 6:30, and dinner will be served at 7:15.

Planning for Weather
The forecast has been all over the place, but one thing that is consistent is, it will be cold.  Please plan accordingly.  For up to the minute updates, I suggest you 'like' the Austin Tennis Club's Facebook page.  Updates will be there first.

 
One Last Note
Since it was so successful last year, we will be including a sports water bottle in the player bag and will provide resources to fill your bottle with water or gatorade at the locations.  Bottles of water or gatorade will not be provided.  We will still have plenty of bananas and snacks for players at the locations.

Please travel carefully to Austin this weekend, and we can't wait to see all of you.

 
Sincerely,
Aubrey Wilkerson

ATC Mentor Program

Written by atc admin

Hi All, 

We are starting up the 2015 Mentor Program.  As in 2014, the mentor program seeks to leverage the experience and skill of ATC’s more experienced players to develop the games of our up and comers.  Last year, mentor/mentee pairs worked together to raise the mentee’s level of play, and there was a lot of great feedback.  Personally, I used what my mentor (Scott Crews holla! ) taught me to win my singles match at Texas Cup. 

So, if you would like to be a mentor or a mentee, please email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to sign up for the program.  I will be recruiting mentors individually too.  The expectation is that mentor/mentee pairs will play at least once a month.  And it’s the nature of the program that the burden will be on the mentee to set up the session. 

This is a great opportunity for mentees to improve their games and for mentors to give back to the club and bring mentees’ games to the next level.  Raising the skills of the club as a whole will position us well to defend our Texas Cup title ! 

Best,

Tim

Hello Club Members and Friends!

Written by atc admin

We have an exciting spring season coming up.  We hope to see everyone out on the courts in the (usually) beautiful Austin weather.  Here are some of the highlights of the spring that ATC is planning:


  • Singles Pilot Program:  We are trying a singles pilot program on Tuesday nights during February.  If you’d like to play singles, email the assigned coordinator of Tuesday tennis by the end of the day on Monday.  We will do our best to get a singles match for you.  We cannot guarantee, though, that we will be able to make an appropriate match.  We will do our best!



  • Mentor Program:  We will be starting up the mentoring program for 2015.  This is a great opportunity to improve your game (if you’re a mentee) and to give back to the club (if you’re a mentor).  More emails will go out about this program, but the expectation is that the mentor/mentee pair will meet to play at least once a month.  


  • Texas Cup:  Texas Cup will be in Dallas this year.  No date has been set yet, but it is typically in May or June.  Texas Cup is a tri-city competition in which 24 players from each city’s club play singles and doubles matches.  The winning club owns glory and bragging rights for the ensuing year.  Austin won in 2014, and we should look to build our dynasty.  The ladder is the primary way that the team is chosen, and it’s not too early to start challenging and positioning yourself to make the 2015 team.  

 

All this in addition to our weekly three days of social tennis, which will include pizza nights and the occasional promiscuous doubles night.  We’ve got lots of great things happening this spring, and we hope to see you all out on the courts!
