GSTL Spring 2018 Tennis Newsletter

DECEMBER 2017 GSTL NEWSLETTER

Well, it is that time again. The 2017 tennis season went by very quickly. Everyone had a lot of tennis and I hope everyone had a lot of fun. Congratulations to all the Local Winners, State Winners and Sectional players. The 2017 Ratings came out December 1. If you want to Appeal, you can do that on line from your Home Page of TennisLink. Appeals may take up to 3 weeks so Appeal early. In addition, the Current Process for Self-Rate Appeals should be turned around in 10 days. Please make sure you answer all questions honestly.

Spring League Organizational meeting is January 4, 2017, 6:30 PM, at Ocean Lakes Recreation Center. Anyone may attend this meeting. It is very important that new and old (meaning experienced) Captains attend the meeting. As you begin to form your teams, please make sure you are not spreading your players between too many teams. I work very hard to try to alleviate as many conflicts as possible, but when players are playing on three or more teams, I cannot accommodate all conflicts.
