Greenbelt Tennis Association The Greenbelt Tennis Association has about 100 members/year. Membership is $10/person/year Apr-Mar. GTA had 7 tournaments and 3 socials in 2010 from May-Sep. The last GTA outdoor activity of the season was held in September. The next GTA outdoor activity will probably be a social or tournament in May 2011. So here are other suggestions for the winter of 2010-2011: 1) The Greenbelt WTT Fairland Bubble Sundays League Starts on Oct 31,2010:(info) (sign up) 2) Play with the M-W-F(12:30)-Su(10:00) Braden Field (Drop In Tennis) Group. 3) Attend 3 (Colesville Tennis Ladder) Socials. One each in Dec,Jan,Feb. Possibly in 2011: 1. GTA Farmers' Market Booth for one Sunday from 10 am to 2 PM 2. Adult Tennis Clinic – Manage logistics 3. QuickStart Clinic – Great opportunity for anyone interested in teaching tennis 4. USTA sponsored Block Party Social – Manage logistics and secure retailers for this All Things Tennis Demonstration day For more information go to GTA website http://www.greenbelt.com/tennis or call 202/256-9300 Summary of GTA 2010 season: GTA Steering committee meetings – Location, date and time unless otherwise noted: Held on the 3rd Sunday in the month from 4 to 6 PM Three Brothers in Beltway Plaza Mall (Address: 6160 Greenbelt Road, Greenbelt, MD 20770.)
