Letter from the President...
Welcome to another season of tennis at Upstate New York’s premier clay court facility, The Albany Tennis Club. This winter was cold, the snowfall abundant and spring is hopefully coming sometime. However, the courts will be open for play on April 26 weather permitting. The abundant snowfall is just what clay courts need in spring as the courts are thirsty for water as the weather begins to warm up. Please check the website for information concerning opening day and the weather impact on opening day.
The board would like to say farewell and thank you to three members that retired from Board duties last fall. Nell Fodera, Georgette Furey and Dave Motta have given their time and diligence to the ATC Board and now have the first Wednesday of every month off.
I would also like to welcome and congratulate two new members to the Board, Susan Dautel and Pete Rinaldi, who were elected last November. Each brings a wealth of tennis and business experience to the Board.
Larry Yakubowski has been retained as the Manager and Tennis Professional of the ATC for 2014. Larry has added a wonderful dimension to the ATC with his vibrant personality, unlimited tennis knowledge and caring effort. Larry and his staff will be organizing the tennis programs for the club this season and are willing to take suggestions from members for additional programs to satisfy their needs. Their contact information is listed on our website.
Thanks to John Salamida, the opening day work party will not be necessary this year as John has completed the vinyl wind slat installation. This will eliminate the need for the mesh windscreens permanently and the arduous task of putting them up and taking them down yearly.
Darlene Wood has agreed to manage our website and keep it up to date with latest ATC news and events. Your 2014 ATC membership application is on the website and can be downloaded at any time. The pass code to our membership list on the website will be emailed to you with your registration receipt so you may keep in contact with other members.
Welcome back to another great season of clay court tennis here at the Albany Tennis Club. Our goal is to make your tennis experience the best it can be.
Regards, Mike DeRossi
