Serving Up Hope

ALTA Member Wins Trip of a Lifetime ALTA member Jamie Harlin always wanted to visit Paris, and fortunately for her, she recently had the trip of a lifetime to “the city of lights” on someone else’s dime. While attending the BB&T Atlanta Open Presented by First Data this past July, Harlin visited the TennisOne tent and entered her name in a drawing for a trip for two to the ATP Rolex Paris Masters. She never believed she would actually win. “I was completely shocked when I received the email from TennisOne,” Harlin said. “It was the most amazing trip ever. …Seeing the Eiffel Tower in person was such a moving experience; one of my favorite moments was standing in front of it. I was in awe the whole time. Taking in the history of the most beautiful city in the world was just unbelievable.” Harlin’s husband is a high school teacher and coach, so he wasn’t able to take the trip with her. His misfortune was Abby Brunelle’s gain. “Abby and I are traveling tennis buddies; we have been to numerous tournaments together — the Miami Open, the Laver Cup in Chicago, and we are going to Indian Wells in March of 2020, so naturally we were meant to go together,” Harlin said. The pair, who both have been ALTA members for more than 20 years, spent five days sightseeing and eating their way through Paris (cheese, fruit, baguettes, and cappuccinos) before watching the semifinals and finals of the Paris Masters — just six rows from the court. “For me, the Eiffel Tower at night, Montmartre, Sacre Coeur, Notre Dame, a Seine River ride, the Ritz Paris, and of course, the tennis was icing on the cake — seeing Novak, Dimitrov, Mies, Mahut, and Khachanov,” said Brunelle. Harlin and Brunelle say they won’t soon forget this trip, all courtesy of TennisOne. “Like Abby says, ‘you can’t win if you don’t play,’” Harlin said. 12

Northside Hospital’s Tennis Against Breast Cancer event was another huge success this year. Nearly 1,000 women participated at tennis facilities throughout the Atlanta area during the three-week-long event, which was held in October. This fundraiser benefits the Northside Hospital Breast Care Program, which helps save lives by funding mammograms and transportation to under-insured women in our community. This was the first year that pickleball was offered. Everyone enjoyed the tennis drills, a luncheon, a fashion show, and a big raffle with great prizes.

ALTA Player Returns to Jeopardy It was the opportunity of a lifetime — not once, but twice. We told you about Alan Dunn in last year’s January issue as he became a five-time “Jeopardy” champion and earned more than $120,000 on the game show. It also earned him a spot in the “Jeopardy Tournament of Champions” this past summer. This 60-year-old ALTA member from Johns Creek got the call in June from the contestant coordinator. “It was good news and bad news,” he says. “The good news was I’m in the tournament. The bad news was my first round was against ‘Jeopardy James.’” For those of you who don’t watch the show, Jeopardy James is James Holzhauer, who won more than $2.46 million during his prolific run in 2019. Dunn was holding his own for the first few rounds of the game and managed to pull within $800 of Holzhauer, but then Holzhauer went on a major run, never looked back, and Dunn ended up losing. What he gained, however, is a tremendous group of friends who have this common bond. “We all share this uniqueness and have similar interests in obscure facts and knowledge of different subjects,” he said. Dunn says his time on the show was a lot of fun, and that the

people are phenomenal. As a side note, Holzhauer won the Tournament of Champions, which aired in Atlanta in November. It was a tremendous rematch, as he fended off Emma Boettcher, a Chicago librarian. She remains the only contestant to ever beat him, as she ended his run 32-game winning streak last year. Holzhauer’s career winnings on “Jeopardy” now total more than $2.7 million, the third most in the show’s history.

Rafael Nadal Coming To Atlanta See the No. 1 ranked tennis player in an exhibition match on March 2. In November of last year, Mexico hosted the largest tennis match in history with one of the greatest all-time players, Roger Federer. That exhibition match (also featuring Alexander Zverev) was played in front of a reported 42,517 spectators. In February of this year, South Africa is slated to beat that record after selling more than 50,000 tickets in just 10 minutes for an exhibition featuring Federer and Rafael Nadal. Atlanta will soon be part of this exclusive circle of cities that are selling out stadiums to host the best tennis players in history. The Premier Live Atlanta Challenge will offer a once-in-a-lifetime chance for local tennis fans to see World #1 Rafael Nadal and former World #3 Grigor Dimitrov at the Infinite Energy Arena on Mar. 2, 2020. The goal is to create the most extraordinary singlenight event in Atlanta’s famed tennis history, according to Premier Live’s Trevor Short and Remington Reynolds. Eight years ago, Short and Reynolds partnered with Sir Richard Branson to create the Necker Cup, which many consider to be the best pro-am in the world. Nadal, who almost never plays in these types of events, chose Atlanta in large part because of his experience with the Necker Cup. He also appreciates Atlanta’s reputation for being the best and most philanthropic tennis city in America. Nadal’s charity, The Rafa Nadal Foundation, is at the center of almost everything he does, and a portion of the all proceeds from the Premier

Live Atlanta Challenge will benefit his foundation as well as the National Tennis Foundation, created by Short and Reynolds. “We want Rafa to feel our love and appreciation for him choosing Atlanta,” Short said. “He can go anywhere in the world [to host a charity event] and he chose Atlanta. It’s a huge deal.” This unique event also will include a private, 100-person charity dinner on March 1 at Umi Japanese restaurant in Buckhead. Ticket holders for this exclusive experience will have the chance to meet Nadal and Dimitrov, to take photos and much more. “If we were going to do something in Atlanta, we wanted it to be big. We wanted it to be special,” Short said. Nadal had a busy 2019 season, winning two grand slam titles, clinching the No. 1 ranking, and helping Spain win Davis Cup. Premier Live considers this upcoming event a meaningful way to raise funds while celebrating the sport they love most, in the city they love most, with arguably one of the best players in history.

“Nadal and Dimitrov are incredibly dedicated athletes and humanitarians, and this is yet another example of their desire to do good,” said Short. Emceeing the evening will be the legendary father and coach of the Bryan brothers, Wayne Bryan. “Wayne and I have done more than 20 events together since 2008. He is the best,” Short added. Those who have spent time with Short and Reynolds know they’ve mastered the meaning of “having a good time.” Nadal has experienced that firsthand as well, making for an incredible partnership. “This city has seen a lot of great tennis,” Short said. “We already have the BB&T Atlanta Open [Presented by First Data], and while [fans] certainly get to see some very good players, they’ve never seen the likes of Rafael Nadal. This exhibition becomes our gift to Atlanta’s tennis community.” Tickets for the exhibition start at $75 and can be found at Premierlive.com. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. with a special performance from Yacht Rock Revue at 6:45 p.m. The tennis match is scheduled to start at 8:00 p.m.

Special thanks to Patsy Cash, Billy Craddock, Lindsay and Elaine Lancaster, Tony Moussakhani, and Lamar Scott who spent the day working with our ALTA members to learn this increasingly popular sport. We couldn’t have completed the clinic without the support of Kelly Stewart at Windward Lake Club, along with our fabulous ALTA volunteers, Bob Kohmescher, Didi Chapdelaine, and Michelle Ruiz.

Each month, the Conservancy invited residents and the wider community to join them for events and programs aimed at celebrating this historic landmark.

The tennis center, led by William Fulton, affectionately known as “Coach Wink,” offers a wide range of programs for tennis players of all ages and abilities, including youth, adults, and senior clinics. In 2019, there were eight ALTA teams that called the

Whether your tennis elbow keeps flaring up, or that occasional knee pain is really starting to slow you down, Northside Sports Medicine gives you access to treatment, technology and an elite team of doctors dedicated to getting you back into the game.

Heman Perry, a successful black insurance executive, donated the park’s first acres on the west side of Atlanta in 1917. Construction began on the park two years later. According to the Conservancy, many of the homes and civic institutions in the Washington Park community were designed and built by black architects and contractors for the families relocating to the neighborhood. This was during a time when they otherwise had been denied professional licensure, and therefore denied commissions to work in other parts of Atlanta. By the middle of the 20th century, Washington Park was recognized as a strong and thriving neighborhood for the city’s black middle class. Since 1932, the tennis courts in Washington Park have played a crucial role in bringing the community together. “It’s important for people to understand that was the only place that black people [then] could legally play tennis in the city of Atlanta for a long time,” said CJ Jackson, chair of Conservancy.

Berry College to Develop New Hotel Near Rome Tennis Center Berry College announced recently that it will develop a Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott hotel on college-owned property next to the Rome Tennis Center. The school plans to open the facility by 2021. The project is an investment from the college’s endowment. Berry Vice President for Finance, Brian Erb, said it aligns with college’s plan to find alternative revenue streams to support the college mission, provide opportunities for student employment, and provide an amenity for the community of Rome. “Based upon our market analysis of room demand in Rome, plus the demand of tennis center and college events, there is a clear need for a hotel in this area,” said Berry President Steve Briggs in a press release. “And in keeping with Berry’s mission, there will be numerous job opportunities for students, from front desk and reception to the service areas.”

HEARD AROUND ATLA NTA

HAPPY 2020! OUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS TO YOU… SAVE THE DATES: JULY 25 - AUGUST 2, 2020

Happy New Year and here’s to a tennis-filled 2020! It’s time to make those New Year’s resolutions and our team has a couple for the great tennis fans of Atlanta. The first resolution is to make our 2020 TRUIST ATLANTA OPEN the biggest and best to date. As a reminder, with the recent BB&T/ SunTrust merger, we will help introduce the new TRUIST bank name in the Atlanta community. The second resolution is to celebrate our 10th anniversary of ATP World Tour tennis in Atlanta. We have one of the most unique, if not the most unique location for an ATP event in the world with such a great partner in Atlantic Station that features breath-taking midtown skyline views, ample covered parking, restaurants, shops, our player hotel, and practice courts all on-site! We will continue our Sunday Showdown women’s exhibition that has sold out for three years in a row and continue to support college tennis with our “College Night,” giving a local college tennis player an opportunity to be our feature match in our Tuesday evening session and matchup against one of the ATP pros. Being our 10th anniversary, keep your eyes open for some special happenings. We couldn’t do it without all the continued support of ALTA and its members. Year after year, tennis

players are the backbone of the entire event. You helped make each session the place to be and be scene in Atlanta throughout the summer. If you followed the progress of our 2019 singles champion, Alex de Minaur, he won three titles in 2019 and almost captured the 2019 ATP Next Gen Finals in Milan, finishing as runner-up. As he proved in Atlanta, he is one of the new stars in the game with many more ATP titles to come. Once again in 2020, we are making a resolution to work closely with our partners like OrthoAtlanta. OrthoAtlanta does a great job in making sure all our players in the singles, doubles and qualifying draws can perform to their peak potential in Atlanta. OrthoAtlanta isn’t just for the pros, but for ALTA players as well. If you or any of your ALTA teammates have a health issue or question, call OrthoAtlanta and get back on the court ASAP.

Har-Tru Announces Associate Moves Har-Tru, LLC has added former USTA National Coach Dustin Taylor to its staff and promoted two of its longtime associates, Tracy Lynch and Brandy Gentry. The moves support the company’s short- and long-term goals, particularly its expansion into the hardcourt coatings market. Taylor oversaw a select group of top American men on the ATP tour, most notably Denis Kudla and Tim Smyczek. Prior to his role as a lead national coach, he was the associate head coach at the University of Virginia where the team won three consecutive NCAA Championships. “Dustin is an incredible addition for Har-Tru and will greatly enhance our ability to serve the high-performance customer, such as universities and tennis academies,” said Pat Hanssen, Har-Tru’s president. “He understands their needs better than anyone I have ever met, and he is very driven to help others be successful.” Meanwhile, Lynch has been promoted to VP of sales and marketing, and Gentry is now marketing manager. Lynch has been with Har-Tru for 21 years. Most recently, he served as director of sales. Last year, he led the launch of Har-Tru Sports Coatings, the first major product line launch for the company in the last 25 years. Gentry is in her 13th year with Har-Tru, and most recently served as the company’s marketing coordinator. She led the design and build of Har-Tru’s online store and, as store manager, she has grown sales ten-fold in the last three years. “I am incredibly pleased for Tracy and Brandy,” said Hanssen. “They work extremely hard and have a track record of identifying and acting on ways to add value for customers, associates, business partners, and vendors.” 22

Interested in Hybrid Stringing? Ashaway Has You Covered For many years now, hybrid stringing — the practice of using one string for the mains and another for the crosses — has been popular among many types of players, including some of the very best. Hybrid stringing allows players to fine-tune their racquets to their particular style of play, much as baseball players design signature bats. Some tennis players want more spin, more power, better drops, or simply some relief from the impact of the modern game. “Many players don’t like the impact of polyesters,” said Ashaway’s Steve Crandall, “and normal, everyday players just don’t get enough benefit from these strings to warrant the added cost. So more and more, they turn to more traditional multi-filament and synthetic gut strings, which offer a good combination of performance, economy and durability, or they start experimenting with hybrid stringing. Players of all stripes, including many of the players I saw at this year’s US Open, are using polyesters or aramids for stiffness and durability, but mixing them with a softer string for playability.” Ashaway’s Crossfire string collection includes six different material and stringgauge combinations to suit even the most discerning player’s taste, the company says. The earlier models — Crossfire II, 17, and 18 — utilize aramid (Kevlar) mains and synthetic gut crosses to provide varying degrees of toughness and durability while enhancing playability. Crossfire Plus combines a 1.25 mm (17 gauge) blend of braided aramid and PTFE fibers for the mains, and Synthetic Gut with an abrasion-resistant wear layer for the crosses. The result, reports Ashaway, is a tough, durable hybrid combination with a softer feel, superior resilience, and maximum ability to impart spin. Crossfire Plus is designed for chronic string breakers and top-spin players looking for a hybrid string combination that plays better than a heavier gauge aramid, but wears just as well. The most recent additions to the Crossfire hybrid line incorporate Ashaway’s 100-percent PEEK monofilament strings. Included are Crossfire ZX, which combines Ashaway’s 17 gauge braided aramid/PTFE Kevlar +Plus mains with MonoGut ZX Pro cross strings; and Crossfire ZX Tour, which includes Ashaway’s co-polymer string MonoGut Original mains with MonoGut ZX for the crosses. Crossfire ZX is the lighter of the two hybrids, combining 1.25 mm Kevlar +Plus mains for durability and control with MonoGut ZX Pro crosses. For heavier hitters, there is Crossfire ZX Tour, which utilizes 1.27 mm MonoGut Original co-polymer monofilament strings in the mains for durability and enhanced spin with 1.27 mm MonoGut ZX for the cross strings. “If you’re one of the many players who find no single string exactly meets their needs,” said Crandall, “hybrid stringing is for you. And there is no more complete line of hybrid strings than Ashaway’s Crossfire family.” JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2020 NETNEWS

ALTA'S 2020 EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE

Ready To Serve COMPILED BY EMMY POWELL, NET NEWS EDITOR

Most of you know the ALTA organization is managed by hundreds of volunteers. What you might not know are the interesting stories behind the people who devote their time to making sure your experience on the tennis courts is a positive one. It all starts with the captains, coordinators, overall coordinators, and leads to the league vice presidents and top officers who oversee this vast network of volunteers. ALTA is an organization like no other in the country, and each year, officers are elected to manage league play. Meet this year’s Executive Committee. 26

NETNEWS JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2020

Sandy Depa became a part of ALTA in 1994 when a neighbor asked her to play on a team. She firmly believes that building solid relationships within a neighborhood translates into a firm foundation within a larger community. “I enjoy meeting people of all walks of life,” she says. “ALTA enables these relationships, and I have met the greatest of friends.” In addition to playing, Depa started her ALTA volunteer efforts in 2000, and she has served in nearly every role possible within the organization. Now, she will lead ALTA as the president in 2020. Her commitment and devotion to ALTA was recognized in 2017 when she was given the President’s Award. Teamwork is a big part of Depa’s personal and professional life. She runs her own property management business and has a true support team of employees who help to keep the company going strong. Of course, the Michigan native’s close group of friends keep her going strong. “I so enjoy watching my people working together as a team. I only wish I had more free time for more tennis, my family, and my dogs,” she said. With what little free time she has, Depa’s family is high on her priority list. Therefore, she gets as many of them as she can onto the tennis courts. Her husband, Tony, is an ALTA member, as are their three children, Katerina, Joey, and Michael. She is working on getting her son-in-law, Joe, and her daughters-in-law, Erika and Chelsea, onto the courts now. Additionally, Depa enjoys watching her grandchildren, Lexi and Nate, play tennis, and she can’t wait for her younger grandchildren, Maddie, Anthony, Nicholas, and Kinsey to play tennis. The entire Depa family has dedicated a tremendous amount of time holding fundraisers to support CURE Childhood Cancer of Atlanta, in memory of Depa’s 3-year-old granddaughter, Melissa, who was diagnosed with AML leukemia. The goal is to finance research for a cure. Depa’s granddaughter, Lexi, (Melissa’s cousin) has taken the mission to heart and started the charity, Pedals of Courage. She formed the foundation so that kids who were undergoing cancer treatment could stay active and happy by riding bikes, scooters, and tricycles throughout hospital halls and at home. ALTA sure is lucky to have the Depa family as part of its community.

Debbie Debbie Gaster First Vice President

Like many people who first move to Atlanta, Debbie Gaster began playing tennis as an adult when she relocated from St. Petersburg, Florida. She started out on a C7 team in 1993, but moved up the ranks and now competes on an A1 team out of Indian Hills Country Club. She has been on the same team there since 2001. “I love that people of all ability levels can participate and play competitive matches,” she said. Gaster now also plays on Sunday Women and Senior League teams as well. She began serving as a coordinator in the Junior Leagues in 2001, and served as the vice president of the Junior Leagues in 2013-2014. She also has been a coordinator in multiple leagues, including Mixed Doubles, Sunday Women and Thursday Women, and she just wrapped up her service as the 2019 Thursday Women’s League VP, following her role as an elected member on the ALTA Board of Directors for 2017-2018. She has just taken up a new interest — playing bridge with friends from her tennis team. “We have a group of eight who take bridge lessons together. We are all finding it quite challenging and love that this is yet another thing our tennis friendships have introduced into our lives.” Gaster says her favorite place to visit is Italy, and she also enjoys cooking and traveling. She and her husband, Jeff, have two daughters, Katie and Allie.

John Lowell Treasurer

He’s a volunteer at heart. ALTA is lucky to have a guy like John Lowell, stepping in as the ALTA Treasurer and the ALTA Foundation Treasurer for the next two years. He’s definitely a numbers guy, as he has worked as a consulting actuary for nearly 35 years. A northern New Jersey native, Lowell moved to Atlanta in 1988. That’s when he started playing ALTA out of Mill Glen in Dunwoody. “I’ve rarely missed a season since then,” he says. “My

John

favorite thing about ALTA is having the ability to play a competitive sport in a team environment, regardless of your skill level.” Lowell has been a captain off and on since 1990, becoming a coordinator in 2015, and stepping into the role of overall coordinator for Mixed Doubles last year. Beyond ALTA, Lowell has been active in charitable, community, and professional organizations for the last 30 years, having served on nearly 10 boards in volunteer roles. Most recently, he served as president of the Conference of Consulting Actuaries and currently represents the U.S. profession internationally. Lowell and his wife, Lisa, live in Woodstock with their dog, Shelby. Camille Puckett Secretary

Camille Puckett is no stranger to ALTA. In fact, she has been volunteering her time for nearly 30 years, having served as a vice president for the Senior Leagues, overall coordinator for Senior Leagues, and coordinator for Sunday Women, Senior Day, and Senior Mixed Leagues. Puckett was awarded the Coordinator of the Year for her work with the Sunday Women’s League in 2003, the first year the award was given. Now she has come full circle, having been the secretary for the Executive Committee in 2016-2017, and will take over that role again this year. Puckett was raised in Savannah, Georgia and lived there until she left for college. It was Savannah where she took her first tennis lesson. “I think most of the balls ended up on Highway 80,” she quipped. Once she moved to Atlanta in 1968, she took up tennis again and took lessons from Jon Niemeyer who said that she needed to start a Business (Sunday) Women’s team, which she did and also volunteered as a coordinator. “I love the people of ALTA and being able to give back,” she said. Another way Puckett gives back is with Special Pops Tennis, where athletes with intellectual disabilities can play. Puckett coordinates Special Pops at Lifetime Tennis and has

been involved with the program for the last 10 years. Each session prepares the athletes for the summer games at Emory (Georgia Special Olympics) and for the Special Pops Fall Classic held at Lifetime in the fall. She is a firm believer in their motto: “Play tennis, make friends, live life.” One of Puckett’s other volunteer roles has been with the BB&T Atlanta Open Presented by First Data, where she has served as a security team leader. She has been lucky enough to meet many of the players, chair umpires, and linesmen whom she always looks for when tennis matches are on TV. During this past year’s tournament, Puckett was able to see Andre Agassi and Grigor Dimitrov on the court. One of their sparring partners turned out to be a player Puckett says is her favorite pro tennis star. Kiranpal (KP) Pannu. He was the #1, Division 2, college player (Columbus College) in the country and was given a wildcard entry into the BB&T in 2018, which is where she met him. Pannu has won various tournaments and is continuing to try to move up the ranks as a professional. Puckett had a successful career as a registered interior designer and recently retired after working in the business for 51 years. She enjoys traveling and says one of the best trips she has taken was a river cruise from Budapest to Prague. She also enjoys spending her retirement as a volunteer and says you receive much more than you give. Lamar Scott Men’s League Vice President

Lamar Scott has been dedicated and involved with the great game of tennis since he was a young kid. Growing up in Georgia and playing junior tennis in Tennessee, Scott served as the captain of his high school tennis team and was ranked as a junior player in Tennessee. After earning a bachelor’s degree in communications and English at Dillard University, Scott received his master’s in human resource management from Clark JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2020 NETNEWS

Most recently, the Georgia Professional Tennis Association presented Scott with the 2019 GPTA Community Outreach Award. Scott is a member of the Professional Football Ultimate Fan Association, and along with tennis, he enjoys travel, exercise, golf, and of course, the Atlanta Falcons! Keri Beck Thursday Women’s League Vice President

Keri Beck is starting her first year as the Thursday Women’s League Vice President, responsible for overseeing nearly 800 teams. She has served the past two and a half years as an overall coordinator and has served the league as a coordinator since 2011. Like so many others, Beck started tennis in her residential subdivision after moving to Atlanta from California in 1996. She started playing in the Sunday Women’s League while working full-time at Sprint in their Revenue Assurance group. She began playing on Thursdays in 1998, volunteering as team captain, co-captain, and as division scorekeeper while working her way up from low C beginner tennis to mid-A level. She now plays at the B level on Senior Day Women and Thursday Women’s Leagues. Beck loves the camaraderie of ALTA tennis and values the many close friendships she has formed through her time participating in the organization. She developed a passion for the game from the beginning and has volunteered in several capacities with the Atlanta Tennis Classic through its many iterations into the BB&T Atlanta Open Presented by First Data. She enjoyed driving the players to match sites, and talking with players, umpires, and ATP staff personnel; but

she especially loved watching the stars of the game, including Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Andy Roddick, and the Mike and Bob Bryan in the intimate setting of the Atlanta venues. Beck is a native Oklahoman; her husband, Joe, is from Ohio, and their son, Jordan, was born in Atlanta and played Junior ALTA tennis for many years. When she is not playing league tennis, she enjoys book club, volunteering at the Atlanta Ronald McDonald House, and traveling with her family. Chequetta Allen Sunday Women’s League Vice President

Chequetta Allen will begin her second year as the Sunday Women’s League vice president. Allen has been an ALTA volunteer since 2011. She started as a coordinator and has worked as an overall coordinator since 2015. “I became an ALTA volunteer because it allowed me to blend my two passions; community volunteerism and tennis,” she says. Allen says she always has been a tennis fan, and both of her parents played when they were younger. “I got started playing tennis because I had a co-worker who played tennis and knew I was a fan. She thought I might enjoy playing as much as I enjoyed watching, and suggested I take some lessons,” she said. That same year, her mom asked her what she wanted for Christmas. “I said I wanted a tennis racquet so I could take tennis lessons,” Allen added. The next spring, I began taking lessons with Coan Tennis Association out of Coan Park in Atlanta. “It was under the direction of the association coaches that I learned all of the tennis basics and became introduced to playing recreational tennis,” she recalled. “I joined my first ALTA team playing out of Coan Park after approximately three month of tennis lessons, and I’ve been playing non-stop since then.” Allen currently plays on a mixed doubles team out of McGhee Tennis Center in Atlanta.

He served as the overall coordinator for the Men’s ALTA league and recently completed his first year as the ALTA Men’s VP. Scott was recently appointed to the Board of Directors for the Atlanta Youth & Education Foundation (AYTEF) as the incoming Executive Vice President. He volunteers with AYTEF at Washington Park.

Scott also helps organize local Toys for Tots campaigns during football season. The NFL took notice of Scott’s community service and volunteer efforts. In August 2017, he was chosen by the League to be featured in an episode of “Tackle My Ride,” a television show that salutes a deserving NFL fan, (in this case, an Atlanta Falcons fan), who symbolizes the spirit of giving back and helping others. The show rewards loyal fans, who get their everyday vehicle customized into a team-inspired dream ride. You can watch the transformation of Scott’s vehicle on YouTube.

Kim Dlugolenski Senior Day Leagues Vice President

Kim Dlugolenski’s introduction to ALTA is a great story. In the spring of 2002, her subdivision, Glencree, was forming a team. She went to lunch with a friend who was going to captain a team and was asked to play. “I hadn’t played tennis since middle school. Well, by the end of lunch, I had signed up for ALTA and stopped on the way home to buy a racquet,” she said. That season, Dlugolenski’s team went on to win the division at C7 and then took home the big plate in City Finals. Naturally, she was on the final court to clinch the title. Growing up in Connecticut, Dlugolenski didn’t have much opportunity to play tennis and would only play in the summer on middle school tennis courts. A job transfer in the insurance industry brought her to Atlanta in 1991. She says ALTA made it possible to meet people and make new friends. Now she is known for her cookies in the tennis community and is often assigned to bring the dessert to her team’s matches. Dlugolenski currently plays Sunday Women, Senior Mixed, and Senior Women out of Grand Cascades and is on a Senior Day Women’s team in Parsons Run — in addition to a mixed doubles team out of Aberdeen. She is continuing in year two as the Senior Day VP and brings past ALTA volunteer experience as a captain, cocaptain, and Senior Women’s coordinator. Because of the outstanding job she did two years ago as a volunteer, she received the 2018 Senior Day League Coordinator of the Year award.

Cameron Roger Dennington Senior Leagues Vice President

Roger Dennington didn’t think tennis was that great when he was a kid. When he was about 10 years old, his mother and aunt took him and his cousins to a tennis court on a hot, muggy day in July — and they weren’t the best teachers. “All I know is that was a miserable time chasing balls, and I thought, ‘Tennis is not for me,’” Dennington recalled. Thankfully, his opinion changed while he was in the Air Force. Dennington spent time playing hand ball and racquetball. One day, all of those courts were full, but the tennis courts were empty. “So, some of the other Airmen and I gave it a shot,” he said. “Needless to say, it was more fun that day than with my mother and aunt.” Dennington spent his post-military career in computer/electronics engineering, having worked for IBM, Hewlett Packard, General Electric, and McDonald Douglass, among others. He took to the courts again with some co-workers who were forming a tennis team and played ALTA for the first time in 1981, but it was a much higher level than he preferred at A3. He says it really wasn’t until 1986 that his official ALTA journey began. His new level was spot on at B1. This was back in the day when ALTA played three doubles matches and two singles matches. Dennington is especially proud of beating two Atlanta Braves players. “If you were a Braves fan in the 70’s, you would be familiar with Hank Aaron and Darrell Chaney, both of whom I beat in singles matches,” he said. Playing on multiple teams each year until very recently, Dennington says he has been lucky enough to captain several City Champion teams in Mixed Doubles and the Men’s Leagues. Currently, he plays Senior Day Men A5 out of Rivermoore Park. He also has served as an ALTA coordinator, starting in 1990 for about 10 years. He resumed his volunteer role as a Senior League coordinator in 2013 and became that league’s Coordinator of the Year in 2015. Dennington says he

became a coordinator because he wanted to ensure ALTA members received as much enjoyment out of tennis as he has. “It’s hard to do in an organization this big, but almost every season, there is one captain or player that I’ve helped have a better season,” he said. Dennington added that it’s usually as simple as explaining rules to them that they didn’t know or misunderstood. “I get a chance to talk to them and tell them what a wonderful sport tennis is and remind them why we play ALTA. Tennis is fun, and you get to meet a lot of great people while doing it.” When he’s not volunteering or playing tennis, Dennington is playing golf, a hobby he took up about a year ago. He and his wife, Joan, also are enjoying their time together at sea, as they have taken nearly 50 cruises since their retirement. Cameron Turner Mixed Doubles League Vice President

Cameron Turner has dedicated her entire career to non-profit fundraising, having served the Atlanta community for the past 17 years. Currently, she works for the Atlanta Community Food Bank in fundraising and development. She has an impressive volunteer résumé; she is a commissioner for the City of Atlanta’s Commission for Women, a member of the Junior League of Atlanta, in addition to offering pro-bono fundraising consulting for emerging non-profits. Spending time with her family, and most importantly, her nieces, is her top priority, and she stays active at Buckhead Church, volunteering in several different ministries. An Atlanta native, Turner started playing tennis when she was eight years old, as there were tennis courts across the street from her home. She spent most of her childhood on those courts. Currently, Turner plays A3 out of Vinings on the Chattahoochee. She is left-handed, but plays tennis right-handed, so she has a tough backhand. She has served as a coordinator for the Mixed Doubles League JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2020 NETNEWS

for the past 12 years and will now take over as the vice president. ALTA is lucky to have someone like Turner who brings so much experience to the position. “ALTA is important to me, and I wanted to volunteer to help continue to make it a great organization that serves its members to the best of its ability. In my 17 years of experience in non-profit development, customer service and volunteer stewardship should always be at the forefront of our work as we manage this organization.” Rita Maloof Junior Leagues Vice President

2020 looks to be an exciting year for Rita Maloof. Not only is she starting her second year as the ALTA Junior Leagues VP, but she’ll be back on the tennis/pickleball courts with her new titanium composite knee! “It was time to get that knee replaced,” Maloof said. “I was becoming better remembered on the court for hobbling around in my red-and-black knee brace, holding one or two balls in my left hand while I played, than for my tennis. Not a good thing.” Rita had surgery at the end of July and is ready for winter play. “It’s funny, while I missed the competition, I missed seeing my teammates and friends even more,” Maloof stated. “There’s even hope for my golf game now. All this time, I just thought I needed new clubs!” The benefactor of Maloof’s down time in 2019 was the ALTA Junior Leagues. Tennis used to be one of five or six major sports children played in Atlanta. Now, the competitive options for sports participation at the recreational, club, school, tournament, and elite levels abound. Not running to the tennis courts every other day gave Maloof and her volunteers time to focus on suggestions and requests received from parents and pros, time to examine data trends, and the opportunity to formulate a set of rule changes that reflect the needs of today’s junior teams. “Age and age eligibility were 30

NETNEWS JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2020

at the top of our parents’ lists,” according to Maloof. “We are thrilled to be in a position to roll out a 15U age group for the 2020 season.” Maloof has been an ALTA volunteer since the early 2000’s. She started as a Sunday Women scorekeeper — in the days when paper scorecards were mailed to her after every match. “After the fifth week of the season, my doorbell rang, and there was my mailman standing at the door with this armload of paper,” she recalled. “He was so curious; he had to stop and find out where it was all coming from!” Maloof is starting her 11th year with the ALTA Junior Leagues. “The kids are amazing! They are so much more talented, athletic, and worldly than when we were coming up,” Maloof said. “Tennis gets them off the couch, out of the house, and helps teach sportsmanship, discipline, and communication skills.” Maloof continues to give back because she believes the Junior Leagues volunteers, parents, and pros are special. It’s her way of saying thank you. “They are the backbone of our leagues. Without them, we wouldn’t exist,” Maloof said. “Unlike in the adult leagues, these players go to school, do homework, share time with siblings, and have to be driven to practices and matches. It not something most of them can do on their own.” In addition to playing tennis and volunteering for ALTA, Maloof is active in her neighborhood and community. Always on the go and with a new bounce in her step, Maloof is looking forward to 2020. Brenda Maddaleni Junior Challenge Ladder Vice President

Brenda Maddaleni will step into the role of Junior Challenge Ladder Vice President, following her volunteer service as a ladder manager for the past four years. She juggles a lot these days, as she has three teenage boys, including one who played on junior ALTA teams and on the JCL for five seasons. “I enjoy being a part of the

development of junior players, seeing them compete, learn, become good sports, and grow up,” she said. ALTA has been a part of Maddaleni’s life for several years, as she started playing soon after she moved to Atlanta from Los Angeles in 1997. She began taking lessons at the YMCA in Buckhead and played on a C6 ALTA team that later won a championship. Currently, she plays out of the Riverside Club and Sandy Springs Tennis Center. She says there is nothing better than the routine of a beautiful morning on a Thursday with the whole team together, enjoying good competition and a great lunch. “I love the history and tradition of the way ALTA works, and getting to City Finals is a great experience,” Maddaleni said. It was her experience in the consulting and sales field that led her to Atlanta, as she specialized in revenue management and pricing. Initially, she thought she wanted to be a nurse, like her mother, but decided to focus on business when she was in college. Maddaleni graduated from the University of Miami with a bachelor’s in finance, and later received her master’s in accounting from American University. She is a licensed CPA, and currently works part-time at North Atlanta Tennis Academy and Joe A. Gayle and Associates. One very interesting goal Maddaleni set for herself was to visit each continent by the time she was 30. “I missed the mark by a few years, but did visit all of them except Antarctica by the age of 35,” she said. “I would like to go back to each continent, go to the more obscure places, and spend more time in each place … and, of course, get to Antarctica.” Bob Kohmescher Special Programs Vice President

Bob Kohmescher can easily describe the true meaning of ALTA. “It’s the camaraderie,” he says. “Each week, you meet two opponents who love tennis. It’s very rare to encounter players with attitudes. Each week, you need to adjust your game to counter your opponents. That

because no one else wanted to do it. “I enjoyed serving as a captain, despite all of the frustrations,” he said. “I know what it’s like to make lineup mistakes. I know what it’s like to try to pair incompatible players.” He jokes, “I know how much fun it is to arrange rained out, make-up matches.” Kohmescher says he sees the role of a coordinator as one who ensures that rules are followed, but more importantly, supports the captains by helping them to avoid mistakes. “I try to help make sure they don’t lose points from matches played because of rule violations, such as sandbagging or player movement. I think my experience as a captain has helped me be a better coordinator,” he said, and it’s that experience that will serve him well as this year’s VP of Special Programs. Michelle Ruiz Media Vice President

Meet the “Rum Cake Lady.” That is how Michelle Ruiz is affectionately known throughout the ALTA community, as she makes a variety of flavored rum cakes. She is starting her second year as the ALTA Media VP, after having been a coordinator and overall coordinator for Thursday Women, as well as a Mixed Doubles coordinator. Her role with the Executive Committee includes helping with the Net News magazine and coordinating several local events, including ALTA’s role in the BB&T Atlanta Open Presented by First Data. Ruiz says she truly enjoys the people of ALTA. “I enjoy working with the team captains and/or my fellow coordinators,” she said. “It’s my small way to give back to the ALTA organization. I think the fact that ALTA is run almost entirely by volunteers is amazing. It’s a great way to meet people and a great way to have fun while exercising.” Ruiz began playing at the age of 40 and has never looked back. “My neighbors in Kings Farm asked me to join a Thursday Women’s team. I was hooked,” Ruiz said. She plays on several teams, including Mixed Doubles, Sunday Women, and

Senior Women. Born in El Paso, Texas, and raised in many locations, Ruiz moved around because her father was in the military. She came to Atlanta in 1972 when she was 11 years old. She says she has always wanted to travel as an adult and got the travel bug from moving so much as a child. She has been to the Galapagos Islands and India, and says her dream trip destinations are Australia and New Zealand. She currently works from home for a small consulting firm. If she isn’t on the tennis court or volunteering, Ruiz enjoys nice dinners out, dancing with friends, and playing trivia and pickleball. She also enjoys spending time with their two children, Michael and Christina Barbara Ingram Appointed Member

Barbara Ingram was born and raised in Atlanta, but she didn’t play tennis growing up, despite ALTA’s prominence in her hometown. Instead, it was television that led her to the sport. “I always played sports in high school, then nothing for many years,” she says. “I always loved the majors on TV, so in my late 30s, I took lessons and loved it.” She joined a team and ALTA’s volunteer ranks. “I became a coordinator in 1999 after my Sunday Women’s team, which I captained, won City Finals. I loved all my coordinators and wanted to be a part of what they did and help other captains,” Ingram said. Soon, she was coordinating in leagues year-round. Ingram plays in multiple leagues out of several neighborhoods, and is known for “setting up a great-looking table, especially with holiday themes.” But, be warned, when on the court, she likes the net. “I love to poach and put away shots,” she says. She’s also a runner and has finished 10 Peachtree Road Races and completed 40 races in 2019, mostly 5Ks. Being retired gives her time to volunteer with the Atlanta Track Club, too, serving as a crew chief for the club’s major races. Her efforts were

improves your game.” In fact, Kohmescher believes you never stop improving your game. “Whether it’s the serve, service return, volleys, overheads, cross-court shots or doubles strategy, you can always get better. When you become content with any aspect of your game, your game remains the same.” Kohmescher has a great philosophy about the sport of tennis. “I have fun every time I get on the court.” Kohmescher also has been able to share the fun with his family. He says even though he is a mid- to low-B-level player, he taught his wife, Carolyn, to play. At her peak, she won several ALTA City Finals championships at the AA level. Kohmescher and his wife also taught their daughter to play. “Our daughter played with my wife on those AA teams. We taught two of our grandchildren to play. They are ALTA City Finals champions. One of my grandsons is a certified teaching pro.” The family connection to tennis began in the summer of 1961 when Kohmescher graduated from eighth grade and picked up the sport with his younger brother. “We spent more time chasing balls than trying to score points,” he said. Kohmescher didn’t play much tennis after that until graduating from St. Louis University with both a degree in psychology and a master’s in experimental psychology. A native of Cincinnati, Kohmescher began work in St. Louis at a health department before joining the Centers for Disease Control in 1974. He relocated to the CDC headquarters here in Atlanta in 1985. “After nearly 38 years with the CDC, I retired in 2011,” he said. Moving to Atlanta also marked the first time Kohmescher played league tennis. Even though he is starting his second year as the VP of Special Programs, his commitment as an ALTA volunteer spans two decades. He has captained both men’s and mixed teams, been an ALTA coordinator and overall coordinator for several leagues, and has been awarded Coordinator of the Year in 2013 and 2015. Kohmescher says he became a captain

recognized with the club’s Ambassador of the Year award in 2015. While Ingram often is on the move, she still likes being a spectator, and ALTA provides her with some of the best oncourt action. “I love tennis and watching tennis. When coordinating, you get to watch great tennis at City Finals, and it is not stressful like when it is your own team,” she said. “You get to enjoy every great point, no matter who is making the shot.” She also enjoys nearly every point at the BB&T Atlanta Open Presented by First Data, as she has volunteered as an usher for the tournament since its inception in 2012. Ingram just completed two years as the Senior Leagues Vice President and is looking forward to her work as the 2020 President’s Appointee.

Bill Price, 2019 President

Bill Price was ALTA’s president last year, and worked to grow the ALTA brand and spread the word throughout Atlanta as to why ALTA offers something for everyone. Price began his ALTA adventure in 1992 when a new team formed in his neighborhood. He was hooked immediately, serving as captain or cocaptain almost every season until becoming a coordinator for the Mixed Doubles and the Men’s Leagues in 2009. In 2013, Price assumed the role of overall coordinator for Mixed Doubles and was elected vice president of the league in 2016, a position he held for two years before becoming first vice president. In addition to volunteering with ALTA, Price served three terms on the board of Camp Sunshine and a term as leader of GE Volunteers in Atlanta. He also has been president of Lei Lani Condo Association in Orange Beach, Alabama. “I guess it’s just something in my blood. I like to get involved and help where I can,” he says. Price is employed by Elavon, a division of U.S. Bank, where he is vice president of solution design and engineering. When not working or playing tennis, Price and his wife like to spend time in the North

Georgia Mountains or relaxing at the beach. “ALTA is a very unique and special organization that has provided me with many great memories and wonderful friends,” he says. “It is more than just exercise or recreation; it becomes your social life, too. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give my time to this great organization.” Joyce Vance, 2018 President

Joyce Vance began her tennis tenure in the late 1980s after receiving free tennis lessons at Coan Park, through the Coan Park Tennis Association. Her connection to ALTA began in 1991, as she began playing in the Sunday Women’s League. Vance serves on the ALTA Executive Committee and will act as ALTA Board Chairman in 2021. Her vast volunteer efforts with ALTA, which span more than two decades, include serving as the 2018 President, 2017 first vice president, vice president of the Sunday Women’s League, and she has been a co-captain, captain, scorekeeper, coordinator, and overall coordinator. She received the ALTA 15-year Honorarium Award in 2017. Although neither of her children play tennis, her grandson (Kevin Kindred, Jr.), a sophomore at North Carolina A&T University, did play in the Junior Challenge Ladder and Junior League with ALTA and USTA. Vance currently plays on teams out of Sugar Creek Tennis Center and Mainstreet Tennis Center. She, at times, finds herself wearing many hats. Along with her ALTA duties, Vance also volunteers by managing a tax site at Stonecrest Library during tax season. She also serves on various committees with Wilberforce University National Alumni Association. When time permits, Vance assists with tennis lessons for the Coan Park 10 and under tennis program. Though she juggles a lot and stays active throughout the volunteer world, Vance is looking forward to continuing her service with ALTA.

Candace Cole ALTA Foundation Rep

The work by Candace Cole as Treasurer of both ALTA and the ALTA Foundation has provided a big boost for the entire ALTA organization. Now, Cole will be turning all of her attention to the foundation. She is excited about the opportunity to concentrate her efforts as the ALTA Foundation Representative/ Secretary. Her background is quite impressive. Before serving as the treasurer, Cole worked as a corporate banker with Trust Company/SunTrust Bank, specializing in franchise and distribution finance. “I stopped working to have children, but I stayed active in our community, utilizing my financial background,” Cole said. Her volunteer résumé is equally as formidable as her finance career, as she helped start a new school for St. Catherine of Sienna Church. “Somehow, I worked myself into a job and became the school’s first Development Director,” she said. Cole also has served as the president of the Kennesaw Mountain Magnet Foundation, Awtrey Middle School Foundation, and several PTA’s. This year, she also will claim the top honor of USTA Georgia female captain of the year. Her family includes sons Bobby, 22; Connor, 20; and Andrew, 15. Zoey, a King Charles Cavalier dog, completes the family. Connor, who started playing ALTA tennis at age nine, has nine ALTA plates. She and her husband play on teams out of Legacy Park. She started the junior program at that park and helped the program grow to where it had at least one team at every age level for both boys and girls. Cole says she truly enjoys the entire ALTA experience. “My favorite thing about ALTA is the friends I’ve made volunteering in various capacities. I’m still amazed that ALTA is the largest local tennis league in the world, yet has only five people working in the office who collaborate with an incredible group of outstanding volunteers.” JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2020 NETNEWS

2019 ALTA President Bill Price and 2019 ALTA Chairman of the Board Marla Michalewicz

COORDINATORS OF THE YEAR Many people play ALTA for the love of the sport. Often, they will discover the added benefit of new friendships that can last a lifetime. None of this would be possible without the volunteers; they are what make the ALTA world go ‘round. Each season, coordinators set up everything for league play. At the end of year, ALTA recognizes those who go above and beyond, and award them as Coordinators of the Year. The 2019 winners are:

ach year, ALTA’s top leaders gather to recognize the organization’s vast network of volunteers and to elect new officers. This past November, ALTA Board Chairman Marla Michalewicz called the meeting to order and kicked things off by speaking on how highly regarded ALTA has become throughout the Atlanta community. She recognized the fine work of the ALTA Board of Directors and the ALTA Executive Committee who had many accomplishments in 2019. Michalewicz commended and thanked ALTA Treasurer Candace Cole for the outstanding service she gave to the organization for the last two years. “Our financial house is in good order, and the board is committed to maintaining that position as we pursue goals in 2020 and beyond,” said Michalewicz. She also noted the new focus, brand awareness, and

Joan Appelbaum, Thursday Women When Joan Appelbaum starting volunteering with ALTA in 2001, she had no idea the role ALTA would play in her life. Now as an 18-year volunteer, Appelbaum has held nearly every position you could name. Those include coordinator in the Senior and Thursday Leagues, Thursday Women League VP in 2007-2008, 2009 First VP, 2010 ALTA President, and Chairman of the Board in 2013. As president, she was instrumental in the website update which led to her current staff position of ALTA IT Manager. This year, Appelbaum far exceeded

any expectations, serving a vital role with the launch of the extremely robust ALTA website. “With the new ALTA website going live in July, I made it my goal to answer questions and concerns as quickly as possible,” she said. “I felt that communication would be the key to making the release successful.” Jane Milton, the 2017-2018 Thursday Women’s League VP, says Appelbaum went above and beyond to get everyone through the learning curve. Debbie Gaster, who was the 2019 Thursday Women’s League VP and now steps into the role of First VP, agrees. Gaster says

marketing initiatives. “Our organization is continuing to develop programs and campaigns designed to grow the ALTA brand and grow our membership.” It has been an incredibly busy year with the launch of the new ALTA website. “Despite the number of challenges, we are continuing to identify performance problems and will work diligently to make all necessary improvements,” Michalewicz said. Another key moment during the annual meeting was the recognition of the tremendous work of the ALTA Foundation, which supports several tennis programs throughout the Atlanta area. “Through your participation, we support programs designed to enrich the community and meet the needs of our youth and special athletes through tennis programs,” said Micha lew icz. The foundation

Appelbaum’s knowledge and assistance with the new site has been invaluable to all ALTA leagues, not just Thursday Women. “She has sent us weekly updates that we share with our teams and also helped explain many of the changes and how to navigate the new system,” says Gaster. Always there with an answer/suggestion for any situation, Milton says Appelbaum handles all of her teams with compassion, and deals with any tough situation with calm and precise reasoning. This is the second year that Appelbaum has been recognized for her commitment to ALTA.

She was awarded the 2018 Coordinator of the Year for her work with the Senior Leagues. An Indiana native, when Appelbaum moved to Alpharetta (now Johns Creek) in 1995, she was a golfer and not a tennis player. Her first experience with ALTA was quite something. She joined a team in the spring of 1996, played and won her first match at C8, while it was snowing. Now 23 years and many tennis lessons later, Appelbaum plays A-level in women’s tennis and B-level mixed doubles out of Seven Oaks. “I feel very lucky that my life includes ALTA on so many levels, and I love

also administers the L. Keith Wood Scholarship program, which awarded 10 high school seniors a $2,500 scholarship. “Keith was an amazing volunteer to ALTA as president and chairman, and we are so fortunate that through his generosity, his legacy continues,” Michalewicz continued. F o l l o w i n g t h e F o u n d a t i o n ’s acknowledgement, the board spotlighted ALTA’s partnership with the BB&T Atlanta Open Presented by First Data, the ATP professional tournament held each July. ALTA members received discounts on ticket purchases, junior players were able to participate in clinics, and the AA3 Mixed Doubles City Finals took place on site. “ALTA continues to be a force in the tennis community and will continue to provide the same outstanding service to which our members and volunteers have become accustomed,” said Michalewicz.

that I can help captains navigate through their season,” Appelbaum said. “When you think you’ve heard it all, you get a new question or situation.” Busy and overwhelming don’t even begin to describe the year Appelbaum has had, and ALTA is pleased to give her this year’s Coordinator of the Year award. Terri Astuto, Junior Leagues There is definitely one coordinator who will be thrilled when March rolls around, and Rafael Nadal comes to Atlanta, as he is Terry Astuto’s favorite player. Astuto has been around ALTA for about 30 years and

2019 President Bill Price also had an extremely busy year, spearheading ma rket i ng ef for t s , overa l l leag ue ma nagement, a nd g u id i ng t he organization. “In 2019, we had a total of 174,010 players on 9,392 rosters across all of the leagues that culminated in nearly 200 City Champions,” said Price. He also noted the continuing commitment by ALTA to the Wheelchair and Run ‘n’ Roll leagues, along with the Junior Challenge Ladder. ALTA stepped into the world of pickleball this past year and sponsored a table at the Atlanta Pickleball Open and hosted its first pickleball clinic with nearly 100 participants. “This is just another way we are reaching out to engage our members and tennis community,” Price continued. He took time to thank the hundreds of volunteers, members of the Executive Committee, the office staff, and

has played in Women’s, Mixed Doubles, Senior Women, and Senior Mixed Leagues. She and her husband, Jim, have played and captained several ALTA teams. All three of her kids played in the Junior League, and her daughter plays as a sub on her women’s team and partners with her husband in mixed doubles. Like many of us, Astuto loves the camaraderie, and many of her ALTA team members are her close friends. Her current B6 Sunday Women’s team plays out of Summerford. Serving as a coordinator since 2005, Astuto also became an overall coordinator in 20112012. “I love the game

of tennis, and ALTA juniors is the perfect place for kids to learn the sport,” Astuto said. “It’s a game you can play for a lifetime.” Junior League VP Rita Maloof agrees, and says that Astuto has been an amazing volunteer. “She is level-headed and fair, and always goes over and above with her team, which is not always easy when working with 18U boys,” says Maloof. Astuto has spent her career as a teacher and is an Atlanta native, but she has lived in a number of places, as her father was in the military. She spent part of her childhood in Germany, so she has traveled throughout Europe and

says Monte Carlo is the most exotic city she has visited. In addition to tennis, her other hobbies include gardening and reading. Denise Kirby, Senior Day Leagues Denise Kirby has played with ALTA since 1998, and says ALTA fits her personality. “I like rules and tend to be a major rule follower because without them, the world would be in chaos,” she says. “While most people tend to stick to the rules, there are those who seem to do everything they can to win at all costs, and that makes for some interesting stories.” Kirby has plenty of stories to tell, as she

has been captaining or volunteering for ALTA for close to 20 years. She has served as a scorekeeper, Senior Women’s League coordinator, and this year earned the 2019 Senior Day Women’s League Coordinator of the Year award. “At the last minute, Denise stepped in to fill a coordinator’s spot in the spring and then agreed to stay on for the fall,” said Kim Dlugolenski, Senior Day Leagues VP. “She is very responsive, lovely to work with, and wonderful to deal with on any questions that arise.” Kirby played up until about three years ago when an Achilles injury put her on the sideline,

his wife, Dawn, for all of their support and hard work over the past 12 months. Each year, the ALTA president presents an award to someone who distinguishes his or herself in the ALTA organization or tennis community. “This year, I have the privilege to select someone who has done both,” said Price. This year’s Presidents Award went to Men’s League VP Lamar Scott, who is a long-time ALTA volunteer and the Men’s League VP. Scott is active with many of the ALTA Foundation activities, and spends countless hours teaching tennis to kids throughout the Atlanta community.

but she still cheers for her team and volunteers. “I stayed involved with ALTA because I love the sport and like to see it continue to thrive,” Kirby explained. Her husband, Allen, also plays ALTA, and both her son, Christopher, and daughter, Heather, were junior ALTA players. Kirby says she has been fortunate enough to have a great job with AT&T (32 years and counting) and works from home, which was a blessing when her children were younger. When she isn’t volunteering or working, Kirby likes to travel. A few years ago, she was able to take an anniversary trip, which included an extended cruise to visit Spain, France, Italy, and Montenegro. “Venice and the Amalfi Coast were standouts from that trip,” she said. Kirby says she is looking forward to her retirement years so that she can travel and volunteer in her community. “I volunteered for the Junior Special Olympics last year and absolutely loved it. The joy on the 36

faces of those kids made my day.” Greg McAfee, Men’s League Whether it’s his Skyline chili from Cincinnati or his “Coney’s,” Greg McAfee knows how to treat his teammates right. The Dayton, Ohio native moved here in 2005 and soon after began playing ALTA, as did his wife, Jessica. He captained teams for 10 years before becoming a Men’s League coordinator in 2016. He played tennis as a kid, but never got serious about it until he joined ALTA. “In 2006, my wife’s co-worker asked her to play, and I would go watch them practice,” McAfee said. “Soon, I was playing on a men’s team and mixed doubles.” He started at C8 and managed to work his way up to A4, winning a few City Finals along the way. “I love that regardless of skill level, a neighborhood or community can play together,” he says, adding that he and Jessica have met a lot of their friends through

ALTA. “It’s a great way to build community and learn a skill that you can have for the rest of your life.” He says he became a coordinator because he enjoys helping other players understand the rules and loves watching the teams compete at City Finals. McAfee helps to oversee about 32 teams as a coordinator. “Greg was chosen, not just because of his outstanding responsiveness to our members, but also for his willingness to always step in to assist,” says Lamar Scott, Men’s League Vice President. “Whether it was agreeing to work at another facility during finals because we were short on people or whatever was needed on a particular day, Greg would make sure his captains were all squared away.” It’s no surprise that McAfee has a customercentric approach; he is the owner of a life insurance agency and real estate team. He also can be found doing home remodeling

Price closed his remarks, wishing 2020 ALTA President Sandy Depa and the rest of the EC a successful year. Depa stepped in to wrap up the night, defining the true meaning of ALTA. “Laughter, fun, exercise, friends for life. Throughout all of the leagues, we have wonderful volunteers, and you all make ALTA what it is,” she said. “These valuable friendships we have made are so important.” Depa went on to thank her family for all of their support, and thanked the office staff and all of her ALTA presidential predecessors who have offered such great guidance and friendship.

projects or anything that requires he work with tools. He also stays busy helping his wife raise three boys, Jake (11), Hudson (10), and Nicolas (4). Bonny Robichaud, Sunday Women Bonny Robichaud has been lending a volunteer hand to ALTA for more than 20 years, and she has done it all. She has served as a coordinator for several leagues, including Senior Day, Senior Men, Senior Women, Mixed, and she has been an overall coordinator along with a league vice president. “I really love to help people,” says Robichaud as she explains why she has dedicated so much of her life to volunteering with ALTA. Sunday Women’s League VP Chequetta Allen says Robichaud is always quick to reply to captains and her overall coordinator, and her communication is always straightforward, yet friendly, as she is compassionate toward the needs of

her captains. “Captains seem to appreciate her concern, and they have a good rapport with her. She manages the many responsibilities of being a coordinator, handling three different AA levels.” Allen also commended Robichaud for her reliability in the post-season. “During City Finals, there is normally one or two coordinators at each level, but she works three different levels, is always prepared and ahead of the game, and works tirelessly that day.” Robichaud also has been a hard worker when it comes to her career, doing anything from being a nurse, a welder, a buyer, a CFO, and an office manager. In fact, it was a vendor of hers who got her interested in tennis. She started playing in Marietta, so Robichaud commuted for practices and matches from Lawrenceville. She plays at the Club of Edgewater, but spent years playing out of the GGC (Georgia Gwinnett College) Tennis facility and has played

at the C7, B1 and AA2 levels. An Illinois native, Robichaud moved to Atlanta in 1972. Besides tennis, she enjoys running and reading, and she is spending her retirement years by helping to raise greatgrandkids. Diane Royston, Senior Leagues Diane Royston has been a volunteer with ALTA for 10 years and has been a wonderful asset to the organization. Barbara Ingram, who just finished her second year as the Senior Leagues VP, says she had the pleasure of working with Royston in the Sunday Women’s League as a coordinator and an overall coordinator, and ultimately asked her to volunteer with the Senior Leagues. “She graciously accepted and will experience her first season as an overall coordinator for the Senior Mixed League. Her calm, logical demeanor and can-do attitude are the perfect combination for ALTA,”

says Ingram. Without Royston, Ingram believes her job would have been much more difficult, so she wanted to recognize her not only for her help this year but during the past 10 years. “Diane has a wonderful way of anticipating what I need handled before I even ask,” she says. Like many others who come to Atlanta, Royston moved into a new neighborhood with courts in 1986. She says it was a great way to make long-lasting friendships and has been playing with the same group of ladies for about 20 years. She says they have several, good cooks on their team, but she believes her apple cake is a fan favorite. Currently, Royston is playing on a B5 team out of Chadwick Club. When she isn’t playing tennis or watching the grandchildren, Royston works as a customer service manager at Progress Container (six years), having spent the previous 25 years at Arrow Electronics in various positions,

including regional business operations manager. The Niagara Falls native also enjoys reading and knitting, and says if she had a dream trip destination, it would be a tour of the Far East. Marty Schmidt, Mixed Doubles League Talk about a dog lover. Schmidt has rescued five dogs — all with sneakerrelated names — and she won’t stop until she gets “Puma,” “Fila,” “Aetrex,” “Sketchers,” and “New Balance.” When she’s not helping animals, Schmidt spends a lot of time volunteering for ALTA. Her goal is to be an ALTA coordinator for at least 20 years, and she is awfully close, having already received the 15-year pin for her service. Her ALTA history began in 1987 when she moved to the River Glen subdivision, and a neighbor asked her to join the neighborhood Thursday Women’s team. “I told her I didn’t play tennis. She told me I would be now since

everybody in Atlanta plays ALTA,” Schmidt recalled. She played her first match two months later and says she was hooked. “I didn’t understand ad-in or ad-out or how to play a tie-break, but I knew I had the best time ever, and knew it was going to be a big part of my life,” she said. Schmidt was right as she and her husband, Kurt, and their three children, Chelsea, Peter, and John, all joined ALTA. She recalls a funny story of how she was the team mom for a boys’ 10U team. She put both her 8-yearold son and 10-yearold son, not realizing 8-year-old kids were not allowed then. When she realized her mistake, Schmidt called the ALTA office to turn herself in. “They appreciated my honestly so much, they asked me to be a junior coordinator,” she said. “Without knowing what that meant, I said ‘yes,’ and have enjoyed it ever since.” She worked with the juniors for 10 years and then mixed doubles.

Schmidt also volunteers at the ALTA tent for the BB&T Atlanta Open Presented By First Data, and she helped out at the ALTA table during the national pickleball tournament at Windward Lake Club last spring. “ALTA has given me many years of enjoyment on and off the courts, and it’s a great way of paying it back,” Schmidt said. “ALTA volunteers and staff are a group I look forward to seeing each season.” She hasn’t played tennis since 2005, but says she gets to live vicariously through the teams for which she coordinates. “Working with the captains is fun. Meeting the teams and captains at City Finals is the icing on the cake. ALTA has never let me forget how much they appreciate their volunteers.”

True appreciation for and a big congratulations to all of the 2019 ALTA Coordinators of the Year!

n every match, tennis doubles tactics plays a huge role in the overall success of a team. Every player should engage in smart doubles tennis tactics and strategy in order to be a winning team. A wise and well-thought-out series of doubles tactics must be executed if a team wishes to progress to a higher level of play, but getting out of your comfort zone or normal style of play can be a bit challenging. Regardless of the league that you’ll be participating in for this approaching season, your team should consider forming an organized plan of attack to beat your opponents. Combined with the appropriate doubles tactics and strategy, this approach could prove to be a huge “swing” in the success of your season. For many doubles players, alternate formations are a bit of a mystery; however, with the proper approach, these strategies can vastly improve your doubles. One of the most effective doubles strategies is known as the Australian formation. The next time your opponents are killing you with their crosscourt returns of serve, give this formation a try: The server and his/her partner (at net) line up on the same side of the court.

NETNEWS JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2020

This will not only give the receiver a different look, it also will take away his/her crosscourt return of serve. Additionally, if the server prefers to stay back and has a much stronger forehand or backhand, the Australian formation will allow the server to remain at the baseline and fire away. As the server prepares to serve to either side, both teammates line up on the same side of the center line. A receiver who sees this set-up will realize quickly that a crosscourt shot may not be an option and will have to redirect the serve to hit the more awkward, down-the-line return. After the server strikes the ball, the server’s partner can stay home, or break right or left (depending on which side the server is serving from) to poach the down-the-line return. The purpose of the poach is to end the point with a strong volley. Keep in mind that the key to success with the Australian and other alternate formations is that you and your partner coordinate your movements prior to the start of the point. This will let the server know whether to stay home and cover the crosscourt return or cover a down-the-line return. Give it a try, and step up your game this season!

he fall Senior Mixed Doubles Mixer was held on November 3 at Bitsy Grant Tennis Center. If you didn’t attend, you missed a fun event to play with “seniors” from throughout the Atlanta area. We had 26 doubles pairs at the A, B, and C levels. They played a lot of tennis on that sunny Sunday afternoon. Each doubles team played three sets of eight games, no ad. In this fun event, we let the women decide whether to receive the no-ad point. They all agreed that was a great idea — they often felt that they were the stronger receiver! The winners and runners up at each level received a gold or silver glass tennis ball. Our next mixers will be in the spring — both women’s and men’s. Look for an announcement about these next two mixers on the ALTA website and the ALTA Facebook page.

he fall 2019 season reflected an increase in the number of teams for Senior Day Women. Therefore, ALTA added a new C3 level for Senior Day Women. Prior to fall 2019, Senior Day Women only had one level for C’s, which was C1. This new level was met with positive feedback from the teams, captains and players, as they felt like they could have a more competitive season. So, if you are 55+ and play at the C level, consider forming a team with your friends for Senior Day Women. The Senior Day Men’s Leagues also are going strong, but we always welcome growth and more teams. Senior Day is a fun ALTA league that plays in the spring and fall. The women play at 10 a.m. on Tuesdays, and the men play at 10 a.m. on Wednesdays. The Senior Day Leagues only play three lines of doubles for each match. So, all you need are eight

players to form a roster. Since there are only three lines, matches typically are over by 1 p.m., so the rest of the day is open. ALTA members may join a Senior Day team any time during the year of their 55th birthday. The Senior Day League is a good way to meet new friends and to play within your own age group. The matches are fun and competitive. As the Senior Day Leagues continue to grow, that should mean less travel for the matches. Registration for the spring begins on Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2020 and ends on Monday, January 20. So spread the word and help grow our Senior Day Leagues. Introduce your friends to your team, or start a new team since this is the only league where you only need eight players to form a team. The only requirement is to be 55 years young or to be turning 55 in 2020.

Major Changes to 2020 Junior League Play! BY RITA MALOOF, JUNIOR LEAGUES VICE PRESIDENT

Photos by Laura Barnard

W

e are thrilled to kick off the year with five, exciting initiatives for the ALTA Junior Leagues. You have asked, and we have listened. As Winston Churchill said, “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” We are a long way from perfect, but there’s enough change going on in the ALTA Junior Leagues to put us on that path: 15U replaces 14U. This is a big one for us. The gap between 14U and 18U had become too large for many of our recreational teams. When one player “aged up,” the rest of the younger players got pulled up as well to keep the team intact. Too often, that first season experience was not a pleasant one. We had 11- and 12-year-old players watching their opponents drive up to the match, and that was a little intimidating. 15U gives us a more defined split between middle school and high school players. Phase Two of this initiative, hopefully by Fall 2020, will change the format of play for 15U from an 8-game pro set to two adult sets with no ad scoring. Age Eligibility moves to the front of the seasons. You asked that your players be able to continue playing with their friends for the duration of the school season. In the past, our cut-off dates were after the ALTA season ended, which meant you couldn’t play on a team if you had a birthday during the season or at times even after. We’ve moved the eligibility date to the beginning of the seasons, March 1 and September 1. Now, for example, if a player is 12 when the season starts and turns 13 in April, the player is still eligible for a 12U team for spring. In the fall, that same player, now 13, would move to a 15U team. Players can move to any non-sandbagged position without penalty. Small rosters and player availability have made it challenging for some teams to field “legal” lineups every week. “Every-

one is gone and the only players I have available played 2d in their last match. Can I default 1s and play 2s instead?” This was a common request we received during the season. That answer is still no, but you can now play the available 2d player at 1s and receive credit for their games won. Sandbagging still will be enforced; you can’t play losing players/teams over winning players/teams. Playoff position values have been updated. ALTA uses an algorithm to calculate a playoff value for each player at the end of the season. The Junior Leagues hierarchy from strongest to weakest has been 1s, 2s, 1d, 2d. Again, based on feedback we have received, you consider players interchangeable at 1s, 2s, and 1d and should be valued equally when playing those positions. Those playing in the 2d lines typically are younger and less experienced, and should be valued differently. Beginning this spring, a win at 1s, 2s, or 1d will carry a value of 1; a loss at those same positions, 1.5. A win at 2d will be valued at 2, while the loss will reflect a value of 2.5. In the Junior Leagues, we will continue to look at the positions played during the season, plus the value to determine the legality of a playoff lineup. 18U levels receive additional definition. According to our managers handbook, high school players are required to play at the B level or above. In an effort to promote healthy competition, we are fine-tuning the 18U levels as follows: A1 – high school varsity players, tournament players; B1 – high school junior varsity/freshman players; C1 – recreational players, teams aging up. Regardless of grouping, winning teams will move up. 2020 is a year of change for the ALTA Junior Leagues. We hope you are as excited with the new initiatives as we are. You can let us know if you think we got this right by sending your comments to juniorvp@altatennis.org. Good luck and Happy New Year! JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2020 NETNEWS 59


GOOD QUESTION

CHANGING A PUBLISHED LINEUP Last week, I had my lineup all set and published it via the website. Then at 1 p.m. on Saturday, I get a call from a parent saying their child couldn’t play, so I had to adjust at the last minute. I didn’t have time to go back into the website to change the published lineup. After the match, I entered the scores and then went back to change the lineup to who actually played, but the site would not let me. I am assuming that is because: Either the lineup feature gets locked out after the scores are entered; or you can’t change a published lineup after match time. I guess no big deal either way, as I’m assuming the “Check Lineup” goes by the actual scorecard and not the lineup feature. Can you confirm my assumption? Rita Maloof, Junior Leagues Vice President You are correct. After the scorecard has been entered, the published lineup cannot be changed. The system uses the scorecard for all the stats, including player names, wins and losses, etc. Changes in players before a line starts without updating the lineup checker are perfectly fine, provided you know the player is playing in a legal position.If you are ready to submit your scorecard (not just save it), you need to check the box ONLY when the match is complete, and you have successfully entered all scorecard information. Then hit ‘SAVE.’ Otherwise, it will not be forwarded for review.

WHEN TO CALL ‘OUT’ My partner was about to volley a shot from close to the baseline. I saw that is was going long, so I yelled “out!” He let it go and it landed out, but our opponents claimed it was their point because I said “out” before the ball hit the ground. They said I couldn’t use that word because it is a distraction. Are they right? Lamar Scott, Men’s League Vice President In this case, shouting “out” wouldn’t cost you, since the ball indeed landed out. When talking interferes with an opponent’s ability to play a ball, it is a hindrance. You’re always at risk when you use the word “out” during a point if it’s not meant to be a call; better to just say “bounce it.” However, had the ball landed in and your partner returned it, your opponents could have claimed the point. The Code, Item 12, says you lose the point if you make an out call and then reverse it (such as by continuing to play the ball). Item 34 further clarifies that talking between doubles partners when the ball is moving toward them

is allowed. Doubles players should not talk when the ball is moving toward their opponent’s court.

CHECK THE ALTA FAQ’S I am trying to find out the dates for league play in the spring 2020. Could you tell me the dates of the matches and/or where I can find out on the ALTA site? Chequetta Allen, Sunday Women’s League Vice President When you go to altatennis.org, you are on the home page. There is a list of upcoming dates, and at the bottom of the list is a button marked “Go to Calendar.” If you click that button, then it will take you to a calendar, and you can scroll from month to month to find league dates for all leagues. You also can click on the hamburger icon under the “sign out” button, and on the upper-right portion of the page > go to Players & Leagues > Scroll down to Adult Leagues or Junior Leagues, and click on

Learn More. When you click on an individual league (Men’s, Sunday Women, Junior Girls, etc.), you can scroll to the bottom of the page to get all league information, including all pertinent league dates.

A Rock ‘n’ Roll Tennis Start To 2020

T

his year is going to be fantastic with so many tennis events, including The Australian Open (Jan. 20 – Feb. 2, 2020), the Laver Cup, Davis Cup, and the fresh faces emerging on the tennis scene. Also, the 2020 farewell tour of the Bryan Bros will be bittersweet for me to watch because they approached the game the right way. Fun always was the number-one game plan when they competed, and boy did that work! Speaking of doubles, adult leagues have really become the bedrock of the tennis energy. The club where I swing my racquet is the historic West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills, New York. We have all kinds of leagues competing here throughout the year. In the wintertime, my junior program ends at 8 p.m. with the WSTC Rock Stars sweeping and lining the courts for the league players about to compete. I marvel at the players who are so locked in and focused; it is like walking into a grand slam final. I always wish them luck, but most of the time they don’t hear me because of the pre-game music blasting in their headphones. It’s also that time of year to pack up the “sticks” and hit the road for an awesome tennis destination. Get some sand in those tennis shoes and feel the sunshine. My heart always will be drawn to a place my brother, Murphy, and I called our tennis home for many years. The Sea Island Resort is just heaven on Earth for the perfect getaway. Many members of West Side Tennis Club have been flocking to the Vintage in Palm Springs, California during the Indian Wells Tour event and with the Boca Raton Resort in Boca Raton, Florida right behind with opportunities to go watch the Miami Open event. The winning formula is to play some ten-

nis and then to “play” while watching some world-class tennis. I will leave you with this tennis tip for the winter: The overhead is a extremely important shot when looking to close out a point around the net. It is one of the most critical shots, but one that most of us often ignore during practice sessions. Having a great overhead is about eliminating the full swing like you would have in your service motion. Cut out the big wind up and simplify the motion by tak-

ing the racquet directly to your shoulder in trophy position. This helps with the quick timing and precision that goes into hitting a great overhead. If you see your opponent take a full swing at their overheads in the warmup, lob them! You will win tons of points! Until next time … get your racquet strung! — LUKE JENSEN FRENCH OPEN DOUBLES CHAMPION

IMPROVING YOUR GA ME

The Role Of Net Players In Doubles

BY BO GARD, PTR, USPTA ELITE PROFESSIONAL, USPTA MISSISSIPPI PRESIDENT

I

n this article, I’d like to talk about a few doubles issues that helped me and my students throughout our tennis careers. I often mention to them that most of the balls hit in tennis, whether it be singles or doubles, usually are going cross court. Why? Because it’s safer. The ball will cross over the lower part of the net and the court is four feet longer. Starting from that premise, studies show that in doubles, at the club level, 85 percent of all shots are hit cross court. Out of the 15 percent of the balls hit down the line, only 5 percent are actually made in. Thinking of it that way, it would be a no-brainer to poach more. If you trust your volleys and if you like volleying, why not take advantage of those cross-court rallies? I’m a strong believer that the net player is critical in doubles by just getting in right position. The role of the net player is to help his/ her partner win more points, sometimes without even hitting a ball. Good players always try to find a way to make the opponent “see” a different or an unusual formation on the other side of the net. Let’s face it, we are all used to seeing one 62

NETNEWS JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2020

player up and one back. That’s the norm. I am not saying to reinvent the wheel, but the main goal should be to make your opponents hit shots with which they are not familiar. You can do that by creating a new court image in your opponent’s mind when they look on the other side of the net. When watching high-level players, I’ve noticed that net players start the poaching in the very beginning of the match. I usually see a big portion of the alley left open. Then, based on how the match develops, you’ll see them taking full control of the net. Another important point is the movement at the net and to know when to make the move to poach, fake, or just stay in place. Now let’s look at the returner. Oftentimes, I see returners winning points by hitting great, accurate shots. Some succeed because they are just good players and some are just taking advantage of poor net opponents. Great returners see or feel when it’s a fake or not. They see the net player moving too early and by the time they hit, the net player is already back in his/her old spot. Sometimes the fake is done too late, after the return. So

when is the right time to do it? First of all, if you are at the net, do the split step or the hop every time the ball is hit. So whether you hit the ball or not, do your readjustment step or split. The split must be done right before the opponent makes contact with the ball. Second, positioning plays an important role in getting in position to volley. If I am at the net, I will start getting closer and closer to the center service line. After talking to my partner (the server in this scenario), I either stay, go back, or switch. I like the ones where I just stay. It is important still to do the split-step even if you’re staying. Remember, our main goal is to distract our opponent, plus that split-step helps with your reaction, and eventually leads to a better chance to steal the ball and poach. That way, we are basically forcing the returner to guess at all times. I like to use different positions; I always use them if my partner has a weaker serve, just to help him out in tough moments at 5-5, deuce, or ad out. I also force the returner to hit more down the line since that is not a shot that is used on a regular basis. Some students have asked me, “When is poaching too much poaching?” My answer would be that as long as you are poaching and winning, keep doing what you are doing and don’t change. If you lose, maybe you should change things around a little bit, and that’s when I would try to disrupt my opponent. Also, keep in mind how the match flows from the beginning, remember all the patterns played, and see how the opponent responds to it. Good luck!

The Spine Is Everything Minimize your risk with a few, simple lifestyle changes. BY SHANE MANGRUM, MD, POLARIS SPINE & NEUROSURGERY CENTER

I

Several common factors that can feed into the development of low back pain or injury include the following: • A lack of mobility in the ankles, hips, upper back or shoulders • Overuse or overtraining • Musculoskeletal imbalances or deficiencies • Technical faults • Equipment faults • Environmental issues such as court surface type or training conditions

NETNEWS JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2020

n tennis, as in life, it can be said that spin is everything. This fact is so central to the game that former #1 ranked player Samantha Stosur once said, “Tennis is all about rotation of the body and my ability to create power.” Rotation helps to create power and topspin. But it also delivers stress to the musculoskeletal system. The impact of these stresses is seen in the high rates of injury reported amongst tennis players. One study stated that nearly 75 percent of all elite athletes playing overhead sports reported experiencing back pain during the last 12 months. (See PLOS ONE 14(1): e0210429.) The lower back, while a common place to experience pain symptoms, is rarely the source of dysfunction. Rather, the issue typically is related to abnormal motions or forces transmitted from other parts. These breakdowns in function elsewhere cause the lower back to do excessive work until it calls out for attention. Several common factors that can feed into the development of low back pain or injury include the following: • A lack of mobility in the ankles, hips, upper back or shoulders • Overuse or overtraining • Musculoskeletal imbalances or deficiencies • Technical faults • Equipment faults • Environmental issues such as court surface type or training conditions

Strategies to prevent tennis injuries can include giving adequate time and attention to warm-up and cool down phases; seeking out healthcare professionals trained to perform functional movement screens, this testing can help to identify areas of weakness or imbalance then sport and individual programs can be built to target your specific game and injury risk situation; building endurance and coordination in the essential stabilizing muscles of the back and core. Speaking of spinning, as any tennis player worth their salt knows, body rotation is part of the game. Just think about your serve: Rotating your trunk and extending your spine to (hopefully!) produce a powerful serve requires a great deal of strength as well as flexibility. The hyperextension of the lower back can stress the three joints found at each level of the spine, as well as the lumbar discs. Strain also is placed on the soft tissues — muscles, ligaments, and tendons.


The lower back, while a common place to experience pain symptoms, is rarely the source of dysfunction.

There also are the sudden forward and lateral movements as a player reaches to return the ball, and then stops or pivots to get into an ideal position. Here are some pointers to make sure that you stay in the game:

Core strength and flexibility:

Surface of play:

These should be an important focus of any fitness plan, but we often forget these “less sexy” components. Nevertheless, they play a key role in supporting and protecting your spinal column.

Softer tends to be better when it comes to your spine. Softer courts reduce the forces of the abrupt stops and starts inherent in our sport. While hard courts are usually easier to find, if you can find softer surfaces (“Har-Tru,” for example), use them!

Consider your serve: The topspin serve is far harder on your body than the slice. Approaching the ball from the side rather than from above avoids much of the hyperextension of the lower back, as well as the lumbar disc compression. Maybe you don’t make that change for every serve to every opponent, but think about incorporating it into your game to give your back a break!

All backhands are not created equal: Learning a one-handed backhand can help you avoid the more extreme rotational stress on your spine that comes from the two-handed backhand. Much of the power of the two-handed backhand comes from that rotation, but learn to use it strategically. You might still want to whip out your power two-handed backhand, but perhaps reserve that for break point!

Racket tension matters: The tension of your racket may be the last thing you would think about, when it comes to caring for your spine. However, the more flexible your racket, the more trunk rotation you need to create a powerful force when you swing. Moreover, a racquet whose size isn’t appropriate for you may increase stress on your elbow, which can cause you to alter your swing and result in back pain from bad biomechanics. The goal is to get smarter about how we use our bodies, so we can keep doing what we love as long as we can!

NUTRITION

Top Five Nutrition Goals To Improve Your Tennis Performance In 2020 BY PAGE LOVE, MS, RDN, CSSD, USPTA

N

ew Year’s resolutions tend to have a short lifespan, typically because they aren’t realistic or specific. Wintertime or “off season” is a great time to work on basic sport nutrition training diet goals that can enhance your mixed-season tennis and spring-to-summer ALTA performance. Start with simple goals and be specific. Develop obtainable and realistic behavioral goals and use these basic sport nutrition guidelines to provide a priority list for your tennis training diet:

1. Improve your hydration in the winter months In the last issue of Net News, we reviewed cold-weather sport nutrition reminders. A common sport nutrition error is to not hydrate fully during the colder months. So, get a head start on one of the most common causes for poor performance — not to mention cause of heat illness in the summer months. Work on your off-court hydration this winter to prepare your body for spring and summer tennis. Aim for at least two liters off court for women and closer to three liters off court for men. These beverages can include water, milk, juice, smoothies, and decaffeinated coffee or tea. Don’t forget to hydrate well closer to practice/match time by slowly sipping on one liter of water for the last two to three hours before play time. And, don’t forget to check your urine color. Lighter “lemonade” tints to urine are the standard for being well-hydrated. 66

NETNEWS JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2020

2. Get serious about prefueling for improved on court performance Many ALTA players rush to matches or practices without appropriate fueling, whether they’re playing after work or school, or on the way to a weekend match. A pre-tennis performance snack can determine how well your match or practice performance goes, which is vital in reaching a new performance peak. Being consistent and timely, as well has choosing the right food, is critical. Enjoy a snack high in carbohydrates, especially a complex carbohydrate, such as a healthy granola bar, or energy bar, such as the new Kind Krunch granola bar, 30 minutes before match time for a healthy and quick pre-fueling choice.

3. Recovery snacks are essential for rebuilding muscle and allowing you to peak perform continuously day after day Post-workout snacks steady your hunger and help re-build muscle. Snacks higher in protein are key. Chocolate milk is an easy go-to; a popular brand to consider is Fairlife with lower sugar levels and higher protein, as well as being lactose free! You also can try sample packets of vegetarian protein powders like Vega One or Orgain, and add them to home-made recovery smoothies to benefit from a variety of food group nutrients such as anti-inflammatory fruits and vegetables and dairy or dairy alternatives, which will help you to meet your calcium and Vitamin D needs. Overall aim is to get 15-25 grams of protein within 30-45 minutes after play.


4. Work on basic sport nutrition balance Try to make every meal complete with at least three of the major food groups that supply key macronutrients, particularly sources of both carbohydrate and protein. Having a healthy balance of a variety of foods throughout the day can help maintain energy and build muscle to help you keep your training goals. Enjoy a variety of dairy products, fruit, and veggies during meals and snacks; focus on having a protein, carbohydrate, and fat source at every meal. This simple concept can help you feel full of energy for your next practice or match. Simple examples of sport performance meals to consider are: • Overnite oats with yogurt and colorful fruit, or egg wraps/sandwiches with veggies for breakfast • Whole grain wraps with lean luncheon meat or tuna with lettuce and tomato, or a bowl meal that contains whole grains like brown rice, quinoa, or legumes over a bed of lettuce and raw veggies with a lean meat toppings such as grilled chicken or salmon for lunch • Lean grilled or roasted meats, including more fish options, loin cuts of red meat, or poultry choices combined with at least two colorful vegetables filling half of your plate and smaller portion of grains — and experiment with new choices in the New Year such as farro or lentil pastas.

5. Explore new sport foods in the New Year Explore new products such as sport beverages, electrolyte gels, chews, on-court snacks, and electrolyte tablets. Try different brands and flavors to see what helps your performance the most. Remember to try these out before practice vs for match play the first time. There may be an anxiety or nervous elements to match days that may throw off your gastro-intestinal tract, so knowing what works for your performance is key. Here are some examples of popular science-based products that you may want to experiment with this winter: • Body Armour — The new kid on the block for sport beverages that is more natural (based on natural fruit juices) but contains electrolytes. Also consider Liquid IV if you have had frequent muscle cramps. This is similar to Pedialyte and comes in handy sachets to add to .5-liter bottles to better meet your sodium losses. • Gu or Clif Shot gels or chews — These can be used at change over, especially the second hour of play during long practices or matches, to help you better meet your electrolyte needs and help with energy boosts in an easily digestible form. • Honey stinger waffles and Pro Bar bites are both higher carbohydrate, but portable energy options. They may be ideal when you are craving more and needing more than a sport beverage, chew, or gel when you are training for longer durations or at higher intensities. • Nuun Electrolyte tablets — These are a great option for a lower carbohydrate, moderate electrolyte option for lower-temperature electrolyte needs on the court. These also are great for general use during day hydration to better meet your electrolyte needs.
