Thanks are due to the USTA-Texas (specifcially Todd Carlson, assistant director in charge of helping community tennis associations). That group has offered a good deal of support and advice over the nearly two years that it has taken Acting President Don Cudd and friends to officially form the GCTA. And now, it has contributed $800 to help the GCTA get off to a great start with it's  Kick-Off Day July 9.

The GCTA will use the money to help pay for banners, t-shirts, liability insurance and various pieces of equipment (including raquets and balls) to used all summer at various camps and other events.

We're excited. This is just the start of all the wonderful Gulf Coast Tennis news coming soon!
