About ALTA

The Atlanta Lawn Tennis Association (ALTA) is a non-profit organization devoted to the development of tennis for recreation and physical fitness and is pledged to maintain the rules of play and high standard of sportsmanship. The primary function of ALTA is scheduling league play for adult teams and junior teams in the five-county metro area. A facility annexation program was developed in 1988 to include qualifying facilities in counties adjacent to the metro counties. ALTA is affiliated with the United States Tennis Association (USTA) through membership in the Southern Tennis Association (STA) and abides by the USTA rules of tennis and code of play. Volunteer officers comprise the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee who in turn direct over 200 league coordinators and a paid office staff of four people. ALTA publishes a bi-monthly magazine, Net News.

About ALTA

ALTA Membership

Our members come from all corners of the Atlanta area and from all demographics. We think our diversity is our biggest asset. When you become a member, you get access to one year of competitive team tennis through any one of thirteen leagues. Friendships are formed, recipes are exchanged, all while improving your tennis skills. The tennis may be year-round, but the camaraderie never ends.
An adult membership is $25, and a junior membership is $10.

Volunteering

Our ALTA volunteers have two things in common—they love tennis and they love ALTA. Coordinators, Overall Coordinators and Vice Presidents assist team leaders and facilitate league play. They will answer your questions, arbitrate misunderstandings, and assign playing levels to thousands of teams. Vice Presidents and other officers, under the leadership of the ALTA President, sit on the Executive Committee. The Executive Committee establishes rules and procedures for the leagues and standards of conduct for the members. The Board of Directors oversees the business end of ALTA. ALTA would not be ALTA without our volunteers!

ALTA History

The Atlanta Lawn Tennis Association has been a registered tennis organization since 1934. During those early days, the association of about 50 members focused on promoting tournaments and junior tennis programs. In 1971, ALTA changed its format to league tennis, and Atlantans loved it. Over the next five decades the membership grew to over 80,000 members including 13 leagues and a Junior Challenge Ladder. The ALTA Foundation became the charitable arm of the organization.
