|LAST CHANCE TO REGISTER FOR FALL!
Tonight is your last chance to register for our final Fall Leagues! Don't miss out!
Our Houston players are still recovering from Ike, which tore through the city, damaging homes, leaving many without power, and impacting everyone. Many local courts were damaged or without power including Memorial Park & Lee LeClear. The picture above was sent by one of our Houston players. Our thoughts are with you all.
Like your neighbors? Well do what the players at Legacy Park & Post Oak Tritt did...these neighbors decided to enjoy our leagues together! So read about the Ladies of Legacy Park and the couples at Post Oak Tritt. I guess you could say, 'The neighbors who play together, stay together!'
We are happy to announce our September Good Sportsmanship award winner, Dakota Tester, a Junior from Roswell, Georgia. Dakota will each receive a 1 year subscription to Tennis Life Magazine!
Our sponsors continue to be so supportive of the league and the players. I Play Tennis continues to sponsor our Atlanta Leagues, Ace Authentic our Junior Leagues, and now PGA Tour Superstore is sponsoring our Texas Leagues. And we thank Netcord for their support and Genewize, our September Newsletter sponsor. Please support our sponsors!
So have fun and play lots of tennis!!

OUR REFERRAL PROGRAM
Many of you have asked when our leagues will increase. We are targeting Spring 2009 for all adult leagues to increase to $20 per player and Junior leagues to $10 per player. But we wanted to remind players that you can avoid paying the registration fee altogether by referring as few as 10 players to LeagueTennis.com. Our referral program pays Two LeagueTennis.com $$ each time a referral pays to play in our league. These $$ can be used to pay for future registrations or redeemed for 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!
BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF AMERICA
If you play tennis at LeagueTennis.com, you already support Boys & Girls Clubs of America since $1 from every registration is donated to BGCA. However, you can support them in other ways! This holiday season, purchase Video Gift Cards online from BGCA at www.bgcavideostore.com in $25 and $40 increments and a percentage of every purchase benefits Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

ROAD TRIP GOURMET GREETING CARDS
If life is a journey, we surely need fuel for the ride.
And that’s how Road Trip Gourmet Greeting Cards got started. They’re gourmet because every card has a different “road-tested recipe” inside. The recipe mirrors the subject of the card and provides a little something extra for the person on the receiving end. These cards don’t get thrown away.
Road Trip Gourmet Greeting Cards are for and about women who have mapped out their lives but ended up taking life’s frequent detours. So - in addition to birthdays and anniversaries, they provide tangible support for real life issues like caring for aging parents, losing jobs and being a working Mom.

VIDEO TENNIS TIP
by RCS Tennis Academy
Forehand Drill #2
This month Brian De Villiers, of RCS Tennis Academy, demonstrates a forehand drill with Todd Dupcak, a 4.5 singles player.
In this singles drill, Todd will focus on hitting heavy, deep balls to his opponents' backhand, until he forces the short return. Todd will then move in and rip the short ball to the corner, step in and put the ball away.
Tips are filmed at Racquet Club of the South and edited by Tony Eisiliones of RCS Academy.

Grant Stafford - Grant competed on the ATP tour for thirteen years with wins over Pete Sampras in 1993 and Marat Safin in 2000.

Leslie Dye was one of the first players to sign up at LeagueTennis.com in the Fall of 2007, our first season in business. She has been playing ever since!
Leslie enjoyed the league so much that she decided to get her neighbors to join in on the fun! So this season, the players at Post Oak Tritt will enjoy fun, competitive tennis without ever leaving their subdivision as they fielded an entire division of 3.5 mixed teams!
Playing in the 3.5 mixed doubles league this Fall are Kevin & Leslie Dye, Brian & Jenny Smith, John & Roni Herring, Tom & Angie Arsenault, Eric & Ann Marie Mindel, Mike & Angie Marchant, and Paul & Bonnie Perot!
THE LADIES OF LEGACY PARK
Stephanie Storie didn't even know that LeagueTennis.com existed until she saw our ad in an issue of Inside Tennis magazine. Stephanie and some of her neighbors at Legacy Park had started playing ALTA & USTA tennis together and decided to try LeagueTennis.com Weekday Women's doubles! And they took the League by storm with teams in the finals of both the 2.5 & 3.0 levels. They are framing the picture above of all of the team in their LeagueTennis.com t-shirts and plan to display it proudly at their ALTA & USTA matches :)
