Sharing Tennis News Since 2012

Dear Billy E,

New Orleans Tennis is Alive and Well

The CPTC Spring Mixed Doubles Challenge went on as planned this past Sunday, April 8th. It was a little chilly early but the rain stayed away and we were able to get in 3 rounds of tennis as planned.  Those who thirsted for more, grabbed their favorite beverage and headed to the courts for an optional fourth round. The rest of us headed to the clubhouse for a Cinco de Mayo style social.  Rob Provence, owner of Second Serve Tennis Center, provided gift certificates for two teams who won all their matches and discount coupons for all players who attended the social.  We had 14 courts of play with 56 total players making this our largest tournament to date.  Our membership is now 134 members strong with an equal number of men and women and growing. Thanks for your interest and your support.  Our next tournament will be in August of this year to coincide with the end of mixed season.

Details will be available soon on our website.

Free Tuesday Morning Senior Tennis at Atkinson-Stern
 Part of this success is due to the format. Seniors (we don’t card) arrive between 8:30-11am and just sign in and join in. Don’t have to make a reservation, form a foursome, find subs!  Plus, locals have a chance to meet GREAT people from all walks of life, gender, skill levels, visitors, and new residents to New Orleans.
Atkinson-Stern is located at 4025 South Saratoga Street in uptown New Orleans. Thanks to Pros Greg Harkins (now head tennis coach at Nicholls State) and Randy Allen for working with NORDC to start this program. It continues to be successful– supported by Head Pro Jonathan Ames, Randy Allen, and NORDC.
