Time Change for Friday Night in March

Written by Tomoya Akashi

Yes, Friday night traffic in Austin can be a big headache, and many of you simply can’t make it to SATC by 6:30pm. So ATC board has decided to try a new experiment in March.

In order to accommodate more players, starting this week, we are going to start Friday night social doubles in March at 7:00pm instead of 6:30pm and end at 8:30pm.

We’ll continue to reserve courts from 6:30 to 8:30pm, so those of you who can get there by 6:30pm are encouraged to arrive early and warm up, socialize, or spread vicious rumors :)

After the last Friday in March (3/25), we’ll let all members cast a vote to see which starting time is more popular. ATC board will make a decision on starting time based on the votes. Please note that votes are open to members only, so if you would like your voice heard, please sign up for a membership.

    Exciting News on the HOT Tournament!

    Written by Doug Plummer

    The ATC Board is pleased to announce that this year’s HOT 9 Tournament, slated for March 4, 5, and 6th 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, and 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 conveniently located just 5 blocks from the Radisson Hotel (HOT’s Official Guest Hotel).

    If you want to play some great tennis, attend an amazing party and mingle with some of the hottest men and women in Austin, sign up today to play by clicking on the link below:
