Tennis season(s) winding down

As the men’s pro tour heads for the season ending championships in London, Atlanta’s amateur tennis leagues – ALTA and USTA – are coming to an end for this year as well. This week/weekend marks the end of the fall ALTA season, with City Championships, and tomorrow will be the second of four rounds of USTA mixed doubles playoffs.

It has a been a great year, one to remember, which began with my return to the ALTA captaining ranks – after a 5 year absence – for my neighborhood’s burgeoning mixed doubles team, the beginning of this blog, Special Pops Tennis and the Special Olympics, volunteering and attending the finals of the Atlanta Tennis Championships, our USTA Georgia Mixed Doubles Championships, meeting Mary Joe Fernandez, and my return to playing in both the Ultimate and T2 flexible tennis leagues.

While organized tennis wanes, off-season retooling begins, and it’s important to use this time wisely to prepare for winter tennis in Atlanta.
