Congratulations to the Alpine Regional Tennis Association on receiving USTA/Midwest Section's Community Tennis Association of the Year Award! 

Alpine Regional Tennis Association was started in 2012 to foster interest and skill development for the lifetime sport for people of all ages in Northern Michigan. Alpine Regional Tennis Association offers numerous tennis activities for juniors and adults. Youth opportunities include USTA Play Day and the Midwest Youth Team Tennis program, and the CTA is organizing its first orange ball tournament this year. Alpine Regional Tennis Association painted blended lines for smaller ’36 and ’60 courts, and campaigned the City of Gaylord to resurface existing courts. The CTA has donated tennis equipment to area schools to help expand instruction for middle and high school students. Adult opportunities include the Start/ReStart program, Sets in the City events, and cardio tennis sessions.

Alpine Regional Tennis Association is currently fundraising to raise money for the construction of four outdoor courts in the community. The future four court complex has support from individuals and companies throughout Gaylord and surrounding areas, and court renderings have been developed for the project.  Alpine Regional Tennis Association received the USTA/Midwest Section Community Tennis Association State Award for Michigan in 2015.
