Letter from the President
Welcome to another season of tennis at Upstate New York’s premier clay court facility, The Albany Tennis Club. With winter almost a memory, outdoor tennis will soon be the order of the day. If weather permits, we will be opening the ATC on Saturday, April 30th.
During the past offseason, Janet Marler and Pete Rinaldi stepped down from their Board positions. Both made significant contributions, and we are very grateful for their service to our tennis community.
We are very excited to welcome the following new Board members: Harrison Breuer and Tom Spagnoletti. Each brings a wealth of business experience and a passion for tennis and the ATC. We are extremely fortunate to welcome these talented individuals, who have already made significant contributions.
Larry Yakubowski will return as the Manager and Tennis Professional for the upcoming season. Over the years, his dedication to the ATC membership is unparalleled. We're pleased that Larry will continue to organize tennis programs for the Club this season.
This season, we’ve implemented a new online membership system that will allow you to renew your membership for the upcoming season online and pay for your membership via PayPal or with a credit card. It will also allow you to maintain your contact information and look up that of other ATC members. This is a significant step for our Club to not only ease the administrative burden of monitoring our membership, but also to ensure that you can get on the courts as soon as your payment is processed.
In addition to the online membership capability, the ATC website has been updated. Please be sure to look at the Programs and Events to see how you can plug into all the ATC action. I would like to highlight the fact that the ATC will be the home of the WTT 50+ National Qualifier the weekend of May 20th.
The Board also approved a modest $5 increase to the Individual, Couple and Family membership rates to help offset the rising cost of materials and services required to maintain the Club.
On April 2nd, the fourth annual ATC Winter Court Fever event took place with more than 35 members participating in friendly mixed doubles at Tri-City in Latham. This event helps get our members back together after a long winter and whets our appetites for the upcoming tennis season. If the action at this event is any indication, there will be a lot of fun tennis on the red clay this summer.
I want to assure you the Board is actively seeking new ways to enhance the value of your ATC membership. We want to provide a comfortable environment for players of all levels to develop their games and establish friendships. If you have a recommendation, please feel free to send it to us at email@example.com.
We look forward to seeing you all on our red clay courts and to a great 2016 season!
