Congratulations to Chloe Beck for not only winning a few big ITF junior titles in the last 2 weeks, but also for being awarded the Ozaki/Hastings Junior Sportsmanship Award by USTA Southern. This award is named in honor of Bill Ozaki, long-time Director of Jr. Tennis for the USTA Southern Section, and Sandy Hasting, a long-time Managing Director of Jr. Competition for the USTA Southern Section. This award is given to a junior player who best exemplifies the finest qualities of sportsmanship in tournament play and the finest traditions of the great sportmen of tennis past and present.
This is a tremendous honor! Congrats Chloe! We are all rooting for you!
COTA recently donated $250 to Oconee County High School's tennis program!!
Those on hand to accept the check from COTA president Robin Stevens, were Coach Derek Hon and OCHS players Nikita Popik and Hollin Hargrove.

CHECK OUT THE NEWLY RESURFACED COURTS: The courts at Satterfield have been resurfaced and look great! These courts were a popular playing spot at one time but not in the last few years as the surface and fencing deteriorated. But no more – they are in excellent shape just waiting on players!
Keep these courts in mind when scheduling pick up or league matches. By the way, these courts have lights that stay on until 10:00 PM – a plus!
One change to note is that Satterfield is now a dual-use facility, being shared with Pickleball. Tennis will take priority, but there will be allocated time for Pickleball and those times will be posted.
Satterfield courts are back on line – go enjoy them!!
