President’s Message

Thank you for your continued support

On behalf of the ATA Executive Committee and Board of Directors, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our members who participated in the 100th ATA National Championships.  We appreciate your support of the event.
 
At the same time, I would like apologize for the mishaps that occurred during the National Championships.  We returned to Baltimore for the historic element of celebrating our 100th where the 1st Championships took place.  While we accomplished that goal, there were several challenges throughout the week that presented problems for the smooth execution of the tournament including a larger than expected turnout.
 
We strive to provide our participants with the opportunity for an exceptional tournament week from competition to off court events and activities.  Mediocrity is not acceptable. 
 
You will notice some new rules and guidelines next year for players and staff that will be implemented to ensure we do not have the same challenges in future years.
 
With that said, I would like to announce that the 101st ATA National Championships will be held at the USTA National Campus in Lake Nona, Florida.  We are extremely excited about the selection of Lake Nona as both Juniors and Adults will be playing at one site.
 
Thank you again for your support of the 100th ATA National Championships.  I look forward to seeing you all in Lake Nona! 

Sincerely,

 
Willie Emerson
President
American Tennis Association, Inc.
