The Austin Tennis Club donated 8 squeegees to South Austin Tennis Center this past Friday. It took a big crew to assemble them, but the whole club pitched in and put them together in time to present them to the SATC Manager Brie Rippner. She was thrilled to receive them and has already sent a note to us letting us know that with the recent rains, "the squeegees have already been put to good use.

Exciting News on the HOT 10 Tournament!

The ATC Board is pleased to announce that this year’s HOT 10 Tournament, slated for March 2,3 and 4th will be extra special! Participants will have the usual high quality play with excellent competition and great courts, and a deliciously memorable banquet on Saturday evening inside the VIP room of the Austin Music Hall.

Raffles, silent auctions and tournament sponsorships will be donated to Out Youth, the only center-based non-profit agency in greater Central Texas. Out Youth provides services and programs specifically designed for LGBTQ youth and their straight-identified peers. Out Youth is also the recipient of an award from the Elton John AIDS Foundation to support their new “Knowing Your Status is Smart” (KYSS) HIV prevention education, testing and counseling program.

This year, for the first time ever, all tournament attendees at the Banquet will also get a free VIP pass to attend one of Austin’s biggest and most fun events, “VIVA Las Vegas” which benefits AIDS Services of Austin.

The Tournament banquet will run from  7:00 PM until 8:30 PM, and banquet guests will be able to join the VIVA event once it begins. Described by the Austin Chronicle’s “style avatar” Stephen Moser as "A Riot of Fun, Music and Faux Gambling", this event will be open to all HOT contestants and their paid banquet guests. Our guests can play Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, & Texas Hold 'Em with hundreds of other attendees at the event. Limited free drink tickets will be provided to banquet attendees as they enjoy spectacular entertainment, fashion displays, faux gambling, and music from DJ Orion after dinner.

The Austin Music Hall is located downtown.

Beginner's Clinic Now Open

In order to encourage more people to join ATC and to help our members improve their tennis skill levels, the Board of Directors of ATC is partnering with some of our top players to offer occasional beginner's clinics. These clinics are open to Members ($4) and Non-Members ($5) and will focus on tennis fundamentals including, drills, and short group play. Note that this is not one on one coaching, but instructors will be giving feedback and suggestions to members throughout the clinic.

We are thinking about holding the first clinic on Friday April 29th from 7-8:30 PM at South Austin Tennis Center at the same time as the regular tennis social so that the beginner's clinic participants can socialize afterwards with everyone else. The clinic will be limited to the first 6 people to respond each week.

Please send email to Douglas ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) if you have any interest in:
1) Participating in the clinic on the 29th
2) Possibly participating in the clinic on Tuesday or other Fridays.
