The mission of the Atlanta Team Tennis Association (ATTA) is to promote and develop the growth of tennis in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered (LGBT) community of Atlanta and our friends and allies. We are the longtime Atlanta affiliate of the Gay and Lesbian Tennis Alliance (GLTA). In 2005, ATTA also became a Community Tennis Association of USTA Georgia. ATTA strives to promote social, recreational and healthy competitive tennis through activities including open play, mixers, clinics, singles/doubles ladders, league team play (ALTA* and USTA) and tournaments. Tennis is played year-round, weather permitting, and ATTA welcomes all participants regardless of sexual orientation.
Opportunities to Give Back to the community also exist through ATTA. Our annual Peach International Tennis Championship tournament gives proceeds from the tournament to a local charity, in 2005 through 2008 benefiting the AIDS Survival Project. We also participate in the "Adopt-A-Highway" campaign by helping to keep clean the section of Scott Boulevard between Clairmont Road and Dekalb Industrial Way in Decatur.
While ATTA has a definite tennis focus, it's also very much about the fellowship and friendships we develop on and off the courts. Come out to Open Play on Saturday and check it out... It's free for your first visit. If you have fun and would like to join, become a member online!
