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.
Who We Are
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.
We are also involved in the local LGBT+ community and support a variety of local organizations, including our sister non-profit Lost and Found Youth.
Why Join ATTA?
- Tennis happens year-round with ATTA. Join one of our ladders, play on a team with other ATTA members and much more.
- Opportunities to give back exist. We work closely with Lost n Found Youth, an organization that helps homeless LGBT youth. 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.
- Friendship! Our community is as much about fellowship and friendships as it is anything else. Join us for socials and other fun events, which we always post to our Facebook page.
*ALTA is not affiliated with ATTA.
Thinking about getting more involved with our charity? Now is your chance! Please join us on Saturday May 15th at noon as we bring food to Lost N Found Youth. You can bring cooked food, pantry items or you can send over food from a delivery service. LNFY helps the homeless LGBT youth of Atlanta. Each night about 40 percent of the homeless in Atlanta are LGBT. We bring food to their day shelter located inside the Park avenue baptist church, adjacent to grant park.
