USTA Georgia has named Harrison Tennis Center as USTA Georgia’s ‘Member Organization of the Year’ for 2010. This award recognizes the outstanding services rendered to a USTA member organization in Georgia. Selection is made on the basis of service to the tennis community, service to the organization’s members and service to the game of tennis. The Harrison staff received this award at the awards luncheon held Saturday, October 23, 2010 at the USTA Georgia Community Development Workshop held at the Atlanta Marriott Perimeter Center Hotel.
Harrison Tennis Center, located in northeast Cobb on Shallowford Road, is Cobb’s largest public tennis facility with 22 courts. It is also one of the busiest tennis facilities in the state, with numerous instructional programs, tournaments and league play. Harrison hosts more league teams than any other facility in the Atlanta area, has been the focal point in the new elementary school league, has an active Special Populations tennis program, and has been a leader in QuickStart Tennis, with the only permanent 36′ tennis courts in the area. Harrison also hosts 7 USTA sanctioned tournaments, including the USTA National 16’s Open and two state championships.
This makes the fourth time in the past 9 years that a Cobb tennis facility has received this award and the third time for Harrison Tennis Center. Harrison received this award in 2002 and 2007, and Lost Mountain Tennis Center received this award in 2004. Harrison also was awarded the USTA ‘Outstanding Tennis Facility Award’ in 2004.
As the Georgia recipient of this award, Harrison Tennis Center will be the Georgia representative for the southern and national ‘Member Organization of the Year’ awards. Congratulations to facility manager, Steve Lottinger and his staff for maintaining the highest of standards in providing services to the community!!!!!
