Gaylord – Alpine Regional Tennis Association (ARTA) and the Gaylord Chamber of Commerce invite the public to an official Ribbon Cutting celebration on Thurs May 24, 2018 at 5pm for the new Otsego County Sportsplex Tennis Center. A special dedication also will take place for the Dr. Michael J Moir court, in memory of the avid Gaylord tennis player who died in a tragic plane accident. His wife Jean, also a long-time tennis player, generously supported the tennis court project in his honor.

People will enjoy a picnic, kindly provided by Otsego Grand Event Center, and are encouraged to wear tennis shoes and bring their tennis racquets for fun play on the courts. Extra tennis balls and equipment will also be available.

May 24 concludes the 3 week Midwest Youth Team Tennis (MYTT) program for area students in grades 2-6. While the instruction is held at Gaylord Intermediate School gym and at the Community Center courts, the students will complete their lessons on the new Tennis Center courts as part of the celebration. The MYTT after-school program provides t-shirts, youth size racquets that the students can keep, and smaller nets so that they can experience success. Tennis instruction is provided by trained ARTA volunteers, under the direction of registered tennis professional Dave Johnson.

The tennis facility is the result of ARTA board members and volunteers working tirelessly to raise $300,000 in funding, including grants from the Dept of Natural Resources, the US Tennis Association, and other generous grants and donations, to build the four USTA standard courts for area residents and visitors to enjoy.

ARTA President, Sheila Simpson, stated “Unlike other sports, tennis is a low cost, high energy, life-long, multi-generational sport” and she saluted all those whose successful efforts have made the Tennis Center a reality. The courts will feature individual and group tennis lessons and activities by tennis pro Dave Johnson; weekly tennis leagues for men and women, reserved or walk-on tennis games, and other tennis fun.

With Gaylord centrally situation in lower northern Michigan, regional tennis tournaments and competitions will also be arranged. Cathy Johnson, ARTA board member and Northern Michigan Tennis Association representative, indicated the first mixed doubles tournament at the Tennis Center is already scheduled for June 9 and 10 for USTA ranked players age 55 and older.
