CTA President’s Update

CTA Members,

We want to thank you for your patience during the past year. Almost all of us continue to be affected by Covid restrictions in some way. Fortunately, we were able to return to CTA League play in 2021 with approximately 400 individual players, recording over 600 matches in Top Dog. In addition, many of you created or continued regular groups outside of CTA Leagues. We also hosted a Fall Mixer at Champions Club with group play, music, food, and prizes. Please join me in thanking all the people that organize our leagues, events, and group play – it is hard work!

We will continue to practice caution as we move forward, especially with indoor events that maintain social distancing. We plan to have a regular year of events beginning with our Spring leagues. Now is the time to start getting your teams gathered.

We are in the process of planning 3-4 mixers for the year. This is where we need your help. The strength of our organization is in its’ members participation, and we need fresh ideas from individuals willing to participate in the process. Please email us at chatt10s@aol.com if you are interested in serving on a committee (competition, community involvement, member activities) or on your CTA Board, as we have a few openings to fill.

Invoices were mailed on February 1 for the 2022 calendar year. As most of you remember, we suspended the collection of 2021 membership dues (for those that paid 2020 dues). As a result, we had very little income last year. However, we also had very few expenses, so our current financial position is still very good. Please continue to support our mission by paying your membership dues in a timely manner, and thoughtfully consider how you can best serve your CTA moving forward. Look forward to seeing you on the courts in 2022!

John Davis, President
