Pride Month: Atlanta Team Tennis Assn.

Ron Cioffi | June 03, 2021

In a wide-ranging interview with Beaury Talley and Lynn Adams of the Atlanta Team Tennis Association (ATTA), the leading organization in Atlanta's LGBTQ+ tennis community, they talk about their tennis tournaments, playing USTA League with LGBTQ+ members and straight teams over the span of decades. They recount some uncomfortable situations with non-accepting opponents while describing how LGBTQ+ players are welcomed now more than ever.

 

Founded in 1987, ATTA has grown to as many as 300 members. It hosts The Peach International Championships, which draws players from around the world and is on the Gay and Lesbian Tennis Alliance (GLTA). The association, which is a USTA member organization, also host the ChATTAhoochee Doubles Classic, named after the city's most prominent river. ATTA is donating funds to its main charity, Lost-n-Found Youth, which supports LGBTQ+ youth who have been kicked out of their homes after they have come out.
