LETT is an organization dedicated to improving the lives of children through tennis and education. Since 1998, LETT has offered in school, after school and summer programs to thousands of Birmingham area youth. LETT uses tennis and the ideals of tennis legend Arthur Ashe as the hook "to gain attention of young people in the inner cities so that we can teach them about matters more important than tennis..." All proceeds from the tournament will go directly to LETT's after school tennis and life skills programs. For information on LETT and ways to get involved, please visit www.lettennis.org

Flex League Registration Closes October 1st

Play tennis on your schedule! Flex league registration closes October 1st. The season will run October 7th to December 29th. This league is perfect for people who can't commit to a specific time to play each week as well as those who want extra practice. One advantage of flex is that results DO NOT count toward one's league rating. Register at www.ustaflex.com. For more information, contact Kevin Theos at theos@sta.usta.com or 205-790-7256.
