Mason Tennis Association held their annual tournament, mixer and business meeting this Sunday, the third of October. Over fifty people(of all ages and levels) met at the MTA tennis courts to play doubles, and after having played three sets, all players and their children converged at The Banner house for a catered Fajita Dinner by Tana and Wayne Carl Hoffmann. In addition to good food and fun, there were door prizes as well.
The following new officers elected were: Amelia Banner as President, Pam Evans Marquart as Vice President, Angela Smith as Secretary- Treasurer. The new officers replaced: Tana Hofmann as President, Susan Grote as Vice President and Pam Estes as Secretary-Treasurer.
This past year, MTA has received a grant from Mason Community Foundation to update the electricity and two grants from United States Tennis Association to enhance, educate and improve our current tennis program.
Mason Tennis Association owns and operates the tennis courts at Mason ISD. They pay for the electricity, the resurfacing and upkeep of the courts, as well as sponsoring three to four high school tournaments, one junior high tournament and hosting a minimum of ten tournaments each year. MTA is proud of their commitment to the community, the Mason ISD tennis program and the many people around the state who travel to Mason to play in our tournaments and visit our town. Mason has a rich tennis heritage, boasting seventy-one cumulative U.I.L.state championships, making us the "Winningest Tennis Town in Texas"!
If you are not a member of MTA, consider joining and help support a tennis heritage that is a part of our town’s unique legacy.
