ALTA’s winter 2012 tennis team schedules have been posted!

The schedules for the Atlanta Lawn Tennis Association’s winter 2012 season have been posted on their website.

As a tennis captain, today is always a highly anticipated day, almost as much as the first match of the season. It’s the first chance to see if any roster changes have affected the team’s placement/level, to see how many familiar opponents are on one’s schedule, and how many home matches each team will have.

Of course it’s impossible to predict how one’s team will do, especially before the season starts, but that doesn’t keep us captains from fretting over our players’ availability as we research the other teams that were assigned to our division, or begin to visualize the forthcoming season before the first ball is even struck.

It’s like a present that sits under the tree for weeks in December, dreaming what it will be and not wanting to wait to unwrap it.

Good luck to my fellow captains and future opponents; have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and we'll see you in January!
