Annual ATC Boat Party

Written by Aubrey Wilkerson

It's that time of year again for our annual party barge party on Lake Travis. If you've been, you know the fun time it is, and should sign up immediately. If you haven't been, I promise a day filled with good friends, yummy snacks, and speedos!

The date this year is Sunday, August 7th, from 11:30 am - 5:00 pm. ATC will provide food and non-alcoholic drinks, and you and your friends can feel free to bring other "beverages". Under the "events" tab of ATC Website, you will find a link to make your payment for the boat party (Members $20, Non-members $35, Gold Free). Then visit the events listing, where you usually sign-up for Tuesday and Friday Night Social Play, and reserve your spot.

As the event approaches, further details with directions and such will be provided. Please don't wait too long to sign-up, because we may fill up fast.

PS...Currently the event details say we will head to Hippie Hollow, but due to lake levels and such, the docking point for the party barge can change.

Beginner's Clinic Now Open

Written by Doug Plummer

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.
