Indoor Tennis’s Future

Celebrate! GETA is approved for a 3-year commitment of tennis at the Domes!

Elmira College’s President has approved GETA’s proposal that includes a combination of court fees, mixer fees, online bookings and donations that we expect to total about $75,000 for each of the three years from the fall of 2022 to the spring of 2025. This is up 75% from $43,000 in the 2021 indoor season. Our planning team felt this was the minimum level that would give us a good chance of being successful.

Our community is a better place to live because we have year-round tennis!

Our challenge was a difficult one. Many hours were spent planning, sharing the challenge with others, thinking creatively and searching how to gain another court by adding a player or two or playing another half-hour to raise more money. It was a lot of hard work by a lot of people and the reward is our joint success for three more years (to start!) We will continue to seek both business sponsors and those players and parents able and willing to donate to GETA so we can continue this for many more years.

Thanks to all who worked so hard, to all who increased their payments for indoor play and special thanks to all who also donated to GETA to support our goal. GETA will thank all the donors in other ways in the future.

Words from Our President

First let me simply say thank you for all you’re doing for tennis in the community! As a USTA Community Tennis Association we depend on three major investments to enable our mission.

The partnership enjoyed among our members allows for a rich and diverse collaboration of ideas and thoughts for tennis in this community. We are engaged across every facet of this community, from parents, teachers, community leaders, medical, legal and of course our kids. Your influence is driving the conversation.

Your patronage is heartfelt and needed. Your encouragement and financial support is a big part of what keeps the wheels moving. Our volunteer board works hard to deliver quality tennis events to the Greater Elmira community.

Our programs run year round, and look to reach every age and skill level. Our existing programs are expanding and we have new ideas to consider. To learn more about our programming, explore the GETA web site.

If you are interested in volunteering, serving on our board, assisting with a program or just sharing an idea, don’t hesitate to contact GETA by email.

Thank you again for all that you do to help.

All the best,

Roe Hemenway
President, GETA Board
