An awesome program for playing tennis during Michigan's colder months. Until 2011 program was administered
via Ann Arbor Ski Club and known as "Ski Club" tennis, but since then
the tennis leagues are run independently by Ann Arbor Tennis Club (an independent organization
with core mission to provide low-cost opportunities for enjoyment of the game of tennis).
More to come: a Short history of Ski-Club tennis program that run from the late 80s (or earlier?)
starting in Huron Valley Club and moving to Chippewa in mid 90s
There are three AATC sessions: Fall, Winter, and Spring. Each last ten weeks.
The fall session starts in mid September, the winter session starts in early December and
the spring session starts in mid February. Games are played at Chippewa Tennis Club.
The Fall 2022 session is planned from Sept 18th to November 20st.
The Winter 2022/2023 session is planned from December 2021 to February 2022
and the Spring 2023 session is planned from March to May 2023.
From year to year the exact dates for sessions may change.
There are two leagues.
Matches are on Saturdays at 6-7.30pm. The play format is mixed doubles. Saturday league typically has maximum of 12 players.
Players range from beginners (NTRP 3.0) to advanced (NTRP 4.0). The courts are assigned so that during a 10-week session everybody gets to play with everybody else.
Social outings after the match are a real nice bonus.
Matches are on Sunday at 6.00-7.30pm and 7.30-9pm. The play format is co-ed doubles. Sunday league typically fills up to maximum of 48 players.
Most players range from intermediate (NTRP 3.0-3.5) to advanced (NTRP 4.0-4.5). Court assignments are based on a dynamic skill-based ladder.
