To register on TennisLink, go to LATA web site: and click on TennisLink.  If you have any problems with registration, please call your Level Coordinator.

A Team Registration Form is included with this letter.  Please complete and return to your level coordinator.  This info is needed for the Captain’s Directory.  You may send via snail mail or e-mail (a pre-registration form is also on the web) to your level coordinator.  A Coordinator Directory with their info is included and available on the web.

The deadline for registering a complete team is September 5th.  We cannot enter your team in the schedule if you miss this date.

For a team to be accepted by September 5th, you must have:

The league fee is $18 per player ($15 for seniors) plus a $2 user fee for the “TennisLink” program.  This will need to be paid with a credit card.  No refunds.

IMPORTANT:  THE TEAM CODE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR TEAM NAME:  When registering your team, please remember to enter your team code first as part of your team name plus your facility code after the team name.  EXAMPLE:  John Doe, Captain of the Aces playing out of Coldstream would be:  TJDO-Aces-CS.   Where "T" is  for Team, JDO is the first initial of John and the first and second letters of John's last name, Doe.  Aces is the team name and CS is the code for the Coldstream
