Christy Etten
Junior Team Tennis District Leagues Coordinator


It has been a busy first year in my job as the District League Coordinator. I have learned a lot, we are growing and continue to make improvements in many areas. I am thankful to all the Local League Coordinators for all their hard work this past year. Without all of you, these accomplishments would not be possible. A big thank you to Lloyd, Nancy and Linda for your support this past year.

Just a few accomplishments I would like to highlight:

Jr. Team Tennis participants increased 30% in 2008 compared to 2007

QuickStart program for the 10 and under market has been a huge success and thanks to Erika Wentz for her help on these new and existing markets

Record year with 34 teams registered for the District Championship in Appleton

14 Teams advanced to the Sectional Championships in Indianapolis

2 Teams advanced to the National Championships in Mobile, AL
*Wisconsin Dream Team-14 Advanced placed 6th
*LeClub-18 Intermediate placed 5th

Congratulations to Pam Hammond on receiving the 2008 WTA Award, which recognizes tennis volunteerism and dedicated service to Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Tennis Association. Pam and her family have given many hours of their time to Jr. Team Tennis and were very helpful at the District Championship tournament. Thank you to Pam and her husband Todd and daughter Katie.

I am looking forward to another great year with Jr. Team Tennis here in Wisconsin. This past weekend, I was in Chicago for the annual Midwest Meeting. I look forward to sharing my learning from that meeting with a Local League Coordinators workshop on January 17, 2009.
