USTA Midwest Section Community Tennis Association of the Year

AAACTA has been selected as the 2010 CTA of the Year in the USTA Midwest Section for "outstanding service rendered in the community served, and in the growth and development of the sport of tennis."

We're honored and thrilled.  

For the past ten years, AAACTA has offered a free tennis program in all six Ann Arbor public middle schools. In addition, we provide volunteers for many tournaments in the area and host a free tennis clinic for kids during the Girls 16 National Tournament.  Since 2000, AAACTA has planned the Ann Arbor City Tournament, one of the oldest city tennis tournaments in the country, established in 1919.
AAACTA has raised nearly $15,000 for other organizations by hosting charity tennis events to benefit Hurricane Katrina victims and the Haiti Nursing Foundation.

AAACTA was recognized at an awards presentation during the USTA Midwest Section Spring Meeting on April 17 in Indianapolis.  Barbara Wasneski, AAACTA Treasurer, accepted the award on behalf of all of us associated with this great organization.

Award winners from all 17 USTA Sections will compete for National CTA of the Year.
