October 2018 Winners

Thanks to all of you who were able to come out and play in our October tournament!  We appreciate all of you who dressed in costume and Halloween spirit!  It’s so much fun to be able to come together as a tennis community and enjoy an awesome lunch, wonderful prizes and just have a great time with each other.   We appreciate Family Road donating a pumpkin for a door prize. We also want to thank those of you who were able to donate to their worthy cause.  

Next month’s tournament date is November 12th.  This is our MEMBER/GUEST tournament so please invite someone who isn’t a part of the BRWTA and ask them to play with you.   Jackie Harvey and myself will have a table set up where your guest can sign up and become members!!  We will also have our annual Christmas/Holiday Bazaar next month.   We are showcasing our fellow tennis ladies who own a business or have a creative talent.     If you’d like to have a booth at the Bazaar, please contact Rhonda Searcy at dblfault2@aol.com .  She will be happy to give you the deets and set you up!  It’s the perfect time to buy Christmas gifts, so be sure to bring your wallets!   

We will also have Food Bank Barrels set up for canned goods collections or for monetary donations.

Welcome Back to the BRWTA 2018-2019 Season!

Welcome back to a new season of Baton Rouge Women’s Tennis Association of LA, LLC!  Our first fun tournament will be Monday, August 13th, and will be a Member Only tournament.  Tournament registration for August is now open.   Many of you may need to renew your membership in order to register.  Should you need any assistance, please do not hesitate to call on any of the Board Members for help!

We are very excited about our 2018-2019 season for several reasons.   First, we have new members who have joined the Board and we are looking forward to working together to make the BRWTA the best it can be for YOU, our tennis ladies.

Secondly, we are changing venues for our monthly luncheons.  We are excited to partner with The Legacy at Bon Esperance.   This will allow us the flexibility to implement fresh and fun ideas at our luncheons.   The Legacy will also be providing five additional courts for our tournament play.

Lastly, we are now utilizing social media by posting updates, pictures and announcements on Facebook.  If you are a Facebook user, be sure to join our page entitled BRWTA.   Of course, we will continue to post on our website as well.

I look forward to being your President and if you ever have any ideas, questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at any time.

Our tournament schedule for the 2018-2019 season is listed below, so mark your calendars and we will see you on the courts!
