Tennis for Everyone
Oak Lawn Tennis Association
Be Active, Get Fit, Have Fun
45 seasons of serving the LGBT+ tennis community and their allies
It's Season 45 for the Oak Lawn Tennis Association!
We have some changes taking place this season. For starters, we will play on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays this year. Our Sunday location will be at the Kiest Tennis Center where we will have access to more courts. We'll play at Samuell-Grand Tennis Center on Thursday nights. And we will begin our Tuesday night play at Kiest as well until we can find a northern location that can accommodate us.
We'll be partnering with the USTA (United States Tennis Association) and DTA (Dallas Tennis Association) to stage multiple special events this season. They include a Cinco de Mayo Mixed-Doubles one day tournament on Sunday, May 5th, inclusion in Dallas Pride's Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade on Sunday June 2nd, and a Pride Celebration on Saturday June 8th. We are attempting to grow the game of tennis in the LGBTQ+ community and want to reach as many potential new players as we can.
We will also be participating in the Texas Cup team tennis competition between the four Texas LGBT tennis clubs (Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio). This year's Texas Cup will take place in Houston (date to be determined). Let our Texas Cup Captain know if you will like to be a part of the team. Team members will receive t-shirts and assistance towards their hotel room. We'll also provide sports drinks and snacks for the participants.
In addition to our weekly social play and special events, we will also have Sunday brunches on select first Sundays after social play, happy hours at Alexandre's and Woody's, and a fabulous pool party in August! Club tournaments will also be a part of our season. Dates, times and locations will be announced at least 30 days prior to the event so make sure you're on our Facebook page or Groupme app. You can also check this website for upcoming events.
New fees for the year will be $225 for the annual membership and $150 for a half-year membership. We also have a Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) membership for $60. This membership requires you to pay the $8 court fee each time you attend a social play session. So prepare for a festive, fun season on and off of the courts! You won't want to miss any of it!!!
