Welcome New Members and Friends!

Thank you everyone who came out and supported Austin Tennis Club at this weekend's Pride Festival.  It was a great weekend for all of Austin's GLBT organizations and we are very happy we could be a part of it.  Since there were a number of new faces around the ATC booth this weekend, I thought it would be a good time to go over some of the ATC basics again.

If you want to become active with ATC, the best way to do so is to start playing our Friday night tennis socials.  Every Friday at 6:30pm, we meet up at South Austin Tennis Center and play.  If you want to come by, here's the step-by-step guide to getting on the list:

  1. First, sign up for the ATC/Yahoo! Groups email newsletter.  You can do this by visiting http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/AustinTennisClub/ or by simply sending an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
  2. At the beginning of each week (usually Monday afternoon), we will send out the RSVP email for that Friday's social.  Once you see it hit your inbox, hit reply and let us know you'd like to be added to the list.  Be sure to reply back as soon as possible.  We have a limited number of courts and we frequently fill up those spots fairly quickly.  If you don't make the list, you'll be put on the waitlist and might have a spot if someone above you cancels.
  3. On Thursday, we will send out another email with the list of people who have made the list and who's on the waitlist.  If you replied soon enough, you'll be on the confirmed list, but there's a chance you might be on the waitlist, depending on how many courts we are able to secure on Friday (normally between 5 and 7 courts). 
  4. If you're on the confirmed list, show up on Friday and get to know the group.  We try our best to match you up with others of similar skill level, so don't be intimidated. The cost is $5 for non-members, $4 for members and free for Gold members.  (You can see what is included with each membership level here.) 

So that's it in a nutshell!  We have Friday night tennis socials almost every week, unless there's a holiday or other special event that day.

Of course, that's not all we do!  We have plenty of other socials throughout the year as well, including a couple of Team Tennis Seasons (more on that later), a members-only singles and doubles tournament, the occasional movie night/game night/bowling night/something random, and our own internationl charity tournament (Heart of Texas Classic).  We keep pretty busy and we're always looking for more people to come out and play and contribute to the group.  Got a great idea for a social event?  We'd love to hear it.
