Seattle Classic Update
With the Seattle Tennis Classic now only one month away, we're happy to announce that the STA has been awarded a grant/sponsorship from the USTA Diversity and Inclusion council in their effort to 'make tennis look like america'. The intent is to promote tennis in the LGBT community through support of select GLTA tournaments. In addition to the USTA grant, RX Bar has signed on as a product sponsor of the event.
The venues for the off-court related events have been finalized. The player welcome/draw party will be held at the Madison Pub on Thursday June 21st and the Tournament Banquet will be held Saturday June 23rd at the Eastlake Bar and Grille.
If you haven't signed up for the Seattle Classic yet, you have until Monday May 14th to take advantage of the early bird discount.
Summer Doubles Is Here!
Summer doubles is running most every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30pm - 8:30pm at the Lower Woodland Park Tennis Courts #5, 6, 7 and 8. In addition Women's Doubles night is every other week starting from 7:00pm - 8:30pm at Solstice Park in West Seattle. All of this is of course weather permitting!
We ask that all participants pay on-line if at all possible. This can be done right from your mobile device at the court or earlier in the day from any computer. We will still accept exact cash on-site for the events, but we will no longer have change. Note that we have capped the number of people who can sign up in any given week to ensure folks will never have to site more than one rotation, if at all!
If you are interested in being a substitute host, please contact any board member via email at email@example.com.
2018 STA Pac-Cup Team Now Recruiting!
The STA is hosting the 2018 Pac Cup competition at Sand Point Tennis Center August 25th and 26th and we are looking for players to represent Seattle against teams from other west coast cities!
Pac Cup is designed for players with a GLTA 'B' (USTA 3.5) rating. While there are a limited number of slots (5) for players with a mixed ratings (at least singles or doubles rating that qualifies) the remainder of the 12 slots must be players with no more than the GLTA 'B' rating in both singles and doubles. To participate in Pac Cup, you must be a member of the STA (another reason to join!).
The team will be selected based on team ladder challenge match results and the discretion of the team captains. Though try-outs are competitive, in the spirit of the STA, we also aim to have fun and ensure that all who play or cheer on others have a positive experience.
The STA team will again be captained by Mark Hanses and Blaine Inafuku. If you would like to participate in team try-outs, contact Mark or Blaine at firstname.lastname@example.org
