March 2021 Newsletter

Hello NPTA Members,

 

Welcome to the 2021 season! We look forward to seeing all of you on the courts this spring and summer. Below is an organizational email to give you an idea of what to expect this spring.

 

DUES

The annual membership fee remains $35 for the calendar year 1/1-12/31. You will need to pay your dues before playing in any of our programs or tournaments.  One membership perk: this year we’re ordering sweat towels with the NPTA logo; we’ll make sure all of you get one once you renew your membership.

 

CALL FOR BOARD MEMBERS

Please consider stepping up and volunteering. If you want to talk to any of the Board members about the time commitment or what we do, we will be happy to discuss. Getting new blood on the Board is healthy for the organization.  Plus, we need you.

 

CALENDAR

The Boro of NP will confirm NPTA’s reservations for our programs by the end of March. Your league coordinators will have the information by the time the leagues begin in case there are adjustments to the calendar below. For now, all you need to do is pay your annual dues and sign up with the respective coordinator.  Visit newprovtennis.org to sign up.

 

If you are an out-of-towner, you can play in our leagues and on our courts as long as you are participating in an NPTA-sponsored league or event.  At other times, the NP courts are reserved for NP residents (unless of course you are playing with a friend from NP).
