*Updated 4/4/08*  2008 USTA League Schedule

Hi Northern Michigan Tennis Players,

You probably have been wondering when you would get information about USTA leagues for 2008. Well, here it is!

First I would like to tell you a little about me. I moved to Elk Rapids in 2006 from Sterling Heights/Rochester area. I am a retired high school P.E. teacher. I also was the boys and girls varsity tennis coach for 22 years at Eisenhower High School –Utica Community Schools. After retiring I worked part time in many different jobs at Rochester Hills Tennis & Swim Club/Lifetime Fitness. I was also on the Southeast Michigan Tennis board for several years and taught officiating classes for Southeast Michigan. I played USTA league tennis from the time it first came on the scene. I love tennis and hope everyone who plays enjoys the game.

April 26-27 3.5 M & W Alpena/Petoskey
May 2-4 3.0 & 4.0 M & W GT Resort

Adjustments will be made to accommodate any additional team levels if necessary. We are using our three indoor facilities equally. Outdoor courts call for the Petoskey site due to large number of courts available. I have been told that it might also be possible to use other places by playing at school or public courts. The league committee can help determine if this is something we want to consider.

Peggy Bushy has been very helpful and promises to continue to be of assistance. A Big Thank You Peggy!!!

I attended the Midwest Tennis DLC meeting in Indianapolis, January 10th-12th. I am much more knowledgeable after this meeting. 

People interested in being a team captain should send me their e-mail address so I may notify you of the captains meeting date and place.
