Happy New Year!
The 2018 Challenge Ladder is ON!
We've just wrapped up the 2017 2nd half challenge ladder and the board would like to congratulate Kurt Wong on winning the men's grand prix race and the $50 first place prize!
The 2018 1st half challenge ladder is officially a go! The ladder has been populated based on the results of the Herb Millro tournament held over the holiday break and the grand prix race begins again with a clean slate!!! Challenge, compete, and play often to win the $50 first place grand prix prize! There are separate men's and women's ladders, but women are also welcome to play the men's challenge ladder.
If you want to play the ladder but don't see your name on their currently, no problem! Simply challenge another STA member (on or off the current list) and when you report your results, your name will be added based on the rules and results. If you have questions about how the ladder or grand prix race works, check out the Ladder and Grand Prix Rules

Ledezma Herb Millro Open Champion
(and more results!)
The 2017/18 Herb Millro STA Member Tournament was held over this past New Years' holiday weekend with 29 players completing a combined total of 82 matches that were both fun and competitive. Thanks to the players and volunteers who helped to make the Herb Millro tournament such a great success.
This annual event is named for Herb "Herbie" Millro who was instrumental in the success of the Seattle Tennis Alliance. As one of the original founding members, Herbie could always be found on the Broadway Playfield courts where the STA was born back in 1984. His passion for the game was contagious and he was always willing to develop the skills of the younger players.
