The CALTA website is currently in transition ...

(and for the Junior Program Nomination form),

CALTA is a nonprofit 501(c)(7) volunteer-run organization.
CALTA's mission is
to: 1) promote women's tennis in the Charleston Area;
2) provide a venue for fair play, good sportsmanship and
competitive doubles tennis at different levels of ability;
3) identify junior women's tennis needs in the Charleston Area and apply
CALTA's available resources in support of them (CALTA Charter, art. IV).
CALTA was formed in 2000 -- and is the successor to Charleston City League,
which had its unofficial start in 1973.
(Click on CALTA Charter for more on CALTA's history.)
As stated in Section II of the CALTA Charter, an individual
participates in CALTA through membership on a team --
and is registered as a member by her team captain.
An individual interested in joining CALTA
should inquire with her local tennis center.
A member can play on only one team in CALTA.
CALTA plays four courts of doubles on Tuesday mornings.
All matches start at 9:30.
The season starts in August after the start of the Public Schools
and continues through the first week of May.

the fundraiser at our 2016 luncheon
was the most successful in CALTA's history!

you can request a tag by sending an e-mail to email@example.com,
with the subject "CALTA bag tag".
Please clearly indicate the address to which the tag(s) should be sent.
Captains: If you make a change or addition to your roster

you may need to "refresh" your page.
If it's still not there, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Dues are nonrefundable, are not pro-rated if a player joins
after the start of the season, and are not transferable
from one player to another -- but, if a player transfers to another team,
she does not have to pay dues again.

Captains, when you submit a request to add to your team
a player who is transferring from another team,
please indicate the team the player is transferring FROM.

send an e-mail request to email@example.com .
2016-2017 MATCH RESULTS

e-mail the Total Points on the score sheet to her coordinator
and follow the instructions on the division's score sheet
for transfer of a copy of the score sheet to the coordinator.
For current Results,
please go to our temporary website www.newcaltatennis.net
Annual Captains' Meetings
Since e-mail and this website fully cover Board communication with captains throughout the season --
and given the low team attendance at the annual meeting in 2013 --
in 2014 the Board decided that it was no longer necessary to hold an annual captains' meeting.
The minutes of CALTA's annual meetings from 2001 through 2013 are available here.
CALTA Watch Instructions . . . .
At the end of our 2009-2010 season, every member received a CALTA clip-on digital watch.
(No need to wear your good watch to the court or to turn on your phone to check the time!)
In response to requests from members,here's a link to the watch instructions
(including battery change) that were attached to the box.
Complimentary LR41 replacement batteries are available
at the welcome tables at the annual CALTA luncheon.
