CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR SPRING CHAMPIONS & FINALISTS!

As we mentioned in our last newsletter, due to our growth, we will be devoting 4 of our newsletters each year to City Championship Results! There are so many winners, there's just not room for much else :)

So please join us in congratulating all of our Spring 2008 City Champions & Finalists! Pictured at right is Jennifer McIntosh, the Spring Atlanta Business Women's 3.5 City Champion. See all the winners and finalists below.

We want to give a special thanks to all of our sponsors! I Play Tennis & SportsNet International were our first sponsors and have supported the league since our very first season Fall 2007. In addition, we have added Ace Authentic, Netcord, TennisLife & our newest newsletter sponsor GeneWize. We encourage you to support them with your business!

And since this is a results newsletter, join us in congratulating the I Play Tennis open level corporate team for winning the USTA Georgia Corporate League State Championship! Not only do they have a GREAT tennis store, they also play a mean game of tennis :) Who better to assist you with your tennis needs?!

Our Fall leagues are open for registration, and don't you know Fall is the BEST time of year to play tennis! We want to issue a player challenge -- if each of the 2200 summer participants were to bring 1 other player to the league in Fall, we would have a whopping 4400 participants which means better competition and shorter drive times! Not to mention that you would earn two LeagueTennis $$ every time that player signs up for a league. Are you up to the challenge? :)

So let us say to everyone, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT! And of course, as always, have fun and play lots of tennis!!

Sincerely,

The Staff

FALL LEAGUES ARE OPEN FOR REGISTRATION!
Don't miss your chance to play! Did you know that $1 from every paid registration goes to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America? Register Today

 

FALL REGISTRATION DEADLINES:

  • ATLANTA SINGLES - 9/7
  • TEXAS DOUBLES - 9/14
  • ATLANTA & TEXAS MIXED DOUBLES - 9/28
  • ATLANTA DOUBLES - 9/28
  • TEXAS SINGLES - 9/28

 

ATLANTA JUNIOR SINGLES LEAGUES
Fall will be our 3rd season of Atlanta Junior singles - help us grow this league by telling every junior you know! Ace Authentic sponsors the junior league and the first 400 juniors to sign up each season in 2008 will receive a pack of Ace Authentic Trading Cards!

 

REGISTRATION FEE & REFERRAL PROGRAM
This Fall, some of our leagues have increased in price to $10. In addition, we are targeting Spring 2009 to increase the price of all of our Adult leagues to a regular price of $20 and our Junior leagues to a regular price of $10.

This is still a great value compared to other flexible tennis leagues! With 5 to 6 regular matches each season and 4 seasons each year, $80 per year gets you a total of 20 to 24 regular season matches plus 4 big playoff tournaments with a chance to become City Champion :)

Also, consider that you can avoid paying the $20 fee altogether by referring as few as 10 players to LeagueTennis.com. Our referral program pays Two LeagueTennis $$ each time a referral pays to play in our league. You keep earning each and every season they play - not just one time!

These $$ can be used to pay for future registrations or redeemed for gift cards. Many of our players are already cashing in their LeagueTennis $$ for registrations and gift cards!! So start referring players now and you will never have to pay to play flexible tennis again!



NEED A PARTNER?  Don't let the lack of a partner keep you off the courts! Find a partner for any of our doubles leagues!

 

WEBSITE ENHANCEMENTS
Keep an eye out this Fall for new features including a revamped My Schedule page that includes facility information for home and away matches, a revamped dashboard page with a player announcement section, pro tour news and weather, and a Search Player Performance feature allowing you to look up performance history on any player in our system, not just players in your league. In addition, in 2009 we will be adding a Leaderboard for a quick view of the top players in each active league as well as some exciting social networking features! We will continue to assess and incorporate as many of the enhancement requests as we can so keep those ideas coming!

GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD WINNER - August, 2008
Chris Lee, Tucker, GA

LeagueTennis.com is excited to announce the winner of our August 2008 Good Sportsmanship Award - Chris Lee of Tucker, Georgia!

Good Sportsmanship is so important to the game of tennis and to our league. In fact, we think that because Chris is such a good sport, it puts him into a class with the likes of Roddick, Federer, Serena & Lindsey as you can see from the picture at left. (That's Chris in the middle in case you didn't know!)

Chris Lee was nominated by one of his opponents in the Atlanta singles league who was impressed by Chris' good sportsmanship both on the courts and in scheduling the match. Plus, we've gotten to know Chris a little during the last few seasons, and we have always been impressed that he is proactive and accommodating when scheduling matches. And like us, he is crazy about the game of tennis!!

We are happy to have players like Chris Lee in our league! Thanks to Tennis Life Magazine, Chris will receive a 1 year subscription for being such a good sport!

We want to stress to all of our players that Good Sportsmanship is critical to the success of our leagues. Treat others as you would have them treat you both on the courts AND in scheduling the matches! And, if you experience a notable case of Good Sportsmanship while participating in our leagues--WE WANT TO KNOW! Just send us an email at support@leaguetennis.com with the details along with the names of the players involved! We will highlight the winners in our monthly newsletters and on our Website!
