Good morning. “WICKED AWESOME” is what one athlete called the Winston Salem Adaptive Open. This quote was from Henry who lives in Boston. He has never travelled to a tennis tournament before and he had a blast. He has already committed to coming back next year as did all the players/coaches and parents.
We are less than two weeks away from our first national tournament in NC. The Winston Adaptive Open will be held at the Vision Tennis Center in Clemmons, NC from May 16th-May18th. It is not too late to register, the registration will close on Monday May 6th.
We are offering full court, short court, doubles and unified doubles and skills. Athletes from NC and other states will have a couple of days of fun, tennis, games, making new friends and a baseball game. Go to the Events page under NC Tournaments for more info.
We are getting ready for our next adaptive tournament here in NC. This is our 2nd year going to Charlotte. Last year we had a fantastic time, great matches, made new new friends and just a lovely day. Please join us again on Saturday September 8th from 9:30-4:30. There will be skills, short court, full court, singles, doubles and unified doubles. The Charlotte Tennis Association in partnership with the Jeff Adams Tennis Center and the ATANC will be hosting the event. The planning committee has had many meetings and they are ready with a wonderful day for both athletes and volunteers. To register go to the events page and click on NC Tournaments, then the Charlotte tournament. We look forward to seeing everyone there.
We had a wonderful day in Clemmons, NC at Vision Tennis Center. Athletes from as far as Wilmington, Raleigh, Jacksonville, Johnston County and Winston Salem played many hours of wonderful tennis. Many of the matches went to tie breakers and fun was had by all. The ATANC would like to thank Charles Hunsucker our local area director for all his hard work. We would also like to thank Vision Tennis Center and Alex Rucker who welcomed us with open arms. However our biggest thanks goes to all the volunteers who put in many hours picking up balls and officiating but I think they all would say having an opportunity to play with our athletes was the high light of the day.
Offering these tournaments throughout the year is so worth the effort. Our athletes are the stars and we are amazed at how much they are improving. We are proud of each of you for your wonderful attitudes, work ethic, big smiles and the BEST hugs, the friendships that are forming and for teaching each one of us how much fun tennis can be. We love you and look forward to the next tournament in Belton, SC and then we all meet up in Charlotte on September 8th.
Calling all athletes and volunteers!!!
Once again the ATANC is partnering with the NC State Women’s Tennis team and Western Wake Tennis Association for our 4th annual Winter Chill. This tournament is run by 4 local high school students. The tournament will start at 9:00 am and we will play 2 rounds of singles followed by unified doubles. For several years the athletes have asked to play with the NC State girls, well here is your chance. The Wolf Pack girls and volunteers are going to partner with the athletes to play some unified doubles. Lunch will be provided. First 50 volunteers to sign up get a free shirt. Register here on the site under NC tournaments. If you haven’t registered on the site please do so first. Once you are approved you can then register for the Winter Chill. See you in a few weeks.
