STA Challenge Ladder
The 2018 first half challenge ladder grand prix races have just concluded. Congratulations to Ben Killey and Mia Nguyen for winning their respective men's and women's grand prix races. Each wins $50 for their efforts. This also means that the slate has been wiped clean and the 2018 2nd half grand prix races start anew! Challenge your fellow members and earn a little spare change! If you're not familiar with the rules you can find them here
Seattle Classic Recap
You came, you played, you laughed, you played more, you cramped, you played more, you celebrated victory, and then you smiled. On behalf of the STA Board and Tournament Committee, we thank the 91 players from nine different countries for participating, and countless volunteers for making the 2018 Seattle Tennis Classic a success!
In total, 156 matches were played over the three days (6/22 - 6/24) at the University of Washington. Congratulations to our champions in their respective divisions!
In addition to some great tennis, more than $2,000 was raised for our two event charities, Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) Washington State and the Seattle Tennis & Education Foundation.
As always, this tournament would not exist or be affordable without our sponsors. Thank you to Rx Bar, Madison Pub, and the USTA for their generous contributions to our event!
Now the planning begins for the 2019 Seattle Tennis Classic!
Join us for Summer Doubles!
Summer doubles is happening most every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30pm - 8:30pm at the Lower Woodland Park Tennis Courts #5, 6, 7 and 8. In addition Women's Doubles night is every other Wednesday from 7:00pm - 8:30pm at Solstice Park in West Seattle. All of this is of course weather permitting!
We ask that all participants pay on-line if at all possible. This can be done right from your mobile device at the court or earlier in the day from any computer. We will still accept exact cash on-site for the event, but we will no longer have change. Note that we have capped the number of people who can participate in any given week to ensure folks will never have to sit more than one rotation, if at all! Paying online in advance reserves your spot!
If you are interested in being a substitute host, please contact any board member via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
