Dear WACTA Families,
In celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, WACTA in partnership with USTA MAS, will be hosting a family tennis event on May 28. The event is family friendly for tennis players of all ages and skill levels. Modified courts and lower compression balls make tennis easy and fun to learn for those tiny tennis players who are new to the sport. For more adventurous tennis families, we will attempt to run some parent-child, mixed doubles matches. Come showcase your skills or learn a new one at this family friendly tennis event! Light refreshments will be provided. Please sign up at this 2016 Family Event.
For 2016 WACTA CapStar Summer Ladder, we're still actively recruiting players, and would love to have more members and friends to join us. If you could help, please sign up at Ladder Registration.
Thank you and look forward to seeing you in our events!
Secretary of WACTA
WACTA is hosting the 2016 Mixed Doubles Tournament on Saturday, 10/29/2016 at Four Seasons Tennis Club.
This tournament is open to members only. However, a WACTA member may bring a non-member as his/her partner. (The non-member partner does not have to be Chinese. If the non-member guest has a USTA NTRP rating, that rating will be used as WACTA rating. Otherwise, a self-rating will be accepted for the first tournament s/he participates in. WACTA reserves the right to adjust his/her rating based on his/her tournament performance). To register, please submit your registration by clicking the registration link below. You will receive a confirmation email immediately. If you do not receive the confirmation email, please contact tournament director Mr. Shing Bong Chen by email. Please specify your combined competition level (for example, WACTA 6.5, 7.5, 8.0, or 8.5). If you don't have a partner, you can still register and we will try to find you one. A registration of two people as a team has priority over separate registrations of two individuals who need an assigned partner.
Registration deadline is Thursday, 10/27, 2016 and registration fee, $20 per person (WACTA members enjoy a $5 discount), is due when you check in for the tournament on 10/29/2016. WACTA reserves the right to cancel or combine any groups due to insufficient registrations.
Registration closed. Please contact tournament director if you have any question.

We are very excited to kick off the 2016 CapStar Summer Ladder Tournament on Saturday, May 21. Over the years, this summer ladder tournament has become extremely popular among our members. Its success could not be achieved without the generous sponsorship from CapStar Commercial Realty, nor the support and participation of our members.
There will be four indoor tournaments for this year's summer ladder series on the following dates (all Saturdays): 5/21/2016, 6/11/2016, 7/9/2016 and 8/6/2016. The first three indoor tournaments will allow teams to move up and down the ladder based on their match results, while the last tournament will decide each team's final standing within the division.
In between the indoor tournaments, all teams are encouraged to challenge other teams and accept as many challenges as possible from other teams. Teams must play at least one (1) challenge match, as the challenging team, between the completion of first tournament on 5/21/2016 and the start of the third tournament on 7/9/2016. Any team failed to meet this requirement will be treated as a "disqualified" team in the final tournament*. Scores of challenge matches played between 5/21 and 7/9 will be recognized as official results and will be factored into the rankings for the next tournament. For details, please refer to the attached tournament rules.
A maximum of 40 doubles teams (80 players total) will be accepted to participate in the tournament. A doubles team can be of any combination of gender, age and skill levels. As always, in case of registrants overflow, a team of two players has the priority over individual player looking for a partner.
The tournament is open to public. The tournament fee is $80. WACTA members enjoy a $20 discount (hence $60 for the whole series). Dinner box is not included.
Ken Chen has graciously agreed to serve as tournament director for this series. Anyone who has directed this tournament would know that the workload for TD are very high. To make our TDs' lives easier, please read, understand and follow the tournament rules. At the same time, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
