ALTA IS BACK!!

The ALTA summer season is underway and going strong. Senior Women (45+), Senior Men (45+), and Mixed Doubles are all in full swing. 
We've all had a really long spring and are continuing to hope that some sense of normalcy returns in the coming weeks and months. On this home page, you will see the current document regarding suggested tennis guidelines for this summer only. Please carefully read the entire document, and if you have any questions, reach out to your captain or coordinator for further explanation. We all collectively need to be responsible for not only our own safety but for our opponents' and our teammates' safety as we start league play.
In the meantime, we've put together a video that we want to share below, as we look to return to the courts for the summer season.
Good luck, and here's to a safe ALTA season!
ALTA IS BACK VIDEO

A Safe Return to Tennis

Summer schedules are online! 
ALTA gets back in action this week for league play. Certain aspects of ALTA’s unique culture are not in keeping with the current guidelines of the various health and public officials, including the CDC in Atlanta, which are advising the public regarding the prevention of the spread of the COVID-19 virus. 
Things are beginning to change, but ALTA's top priority is still the safety of our members. Please read the guidelines and recommendations below for summer league play, as well as updated information regarding the mandatory 10-point tiebreak in lieu of a 3rd set change for summer leagues only. This is an ever-changing situation, rules and regulations are going to continue to be updated, so please stay in close contact with your captains and coordinators.
