What we're about
Triangle Tennis Enthusiasts, a Top Ten Most Active Sports and Recreation Meet-up Group in the United States. Formerly World #1, May - November 2012, and US #1, May 2012 - March 2013. Recipient of the Town Of Cary Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources "Volunteer Partner Organization of the Year Award," 2017.
Based at scenic Cary Tennis Park, the Southern USTA's Facility of The Year, 2008 and 2012. Home of the ACC Men's and Women's Tennis Championships each April, and the ATP Challenger Tour Atlantic Tire Championships each September.
Adult tennis. Great variety of quality events, support and comprehensive calendar of weekly programs, all on reserved courts. Daytime and nighttime events, averaging 56 events per month. All our events are a pleasant 50/50 blend of social/competitive. We compliment good play. We all like to win, but not at the expense of hooking line calls and gamesmanship.
We provide women's doubles, men's doubles, mixed doubles and singles play events. Some select events are specifically advertised and promoted as play-up/play down events. Our staff of volunteer assistant organizers (AOs) have a combined 84 years experience organizing events for TTE as of October 2018. AOs manage each of their events and provide the best possible similar skills-based pairings/matches and a new can of balls for each court at each event.
Our member players are from 1.5 (beginner+) to 5.0 (advanced). The majority are 2.5 - 4.0 (novice through intermediate). Some members are new to the game and looking to play organized tennis after completing clinics and lessons, while other members are looking for the next step to prepare for league play. Some members simply do not want to play league, while others played league and never want to play league again. Some members play both league and TTE because they enjoy the social aspect and networking capabilities TTE provides.
