TO PADDLE TENNIS ENTHUSIASTS:
The Greater Cleveland Platform Tennis Association (GCPTA) is pleased to have been selected to organize the 2004 American Platform Tennis Association’s National Championships to be held in Cleveland, Ohio in March, 2004! This will mark the first time the competition will return to the mid-west since Cleveland last hosted the event in 1993. The GCPTA sought to hold this tournament here, not only because we wanted Clevelanders to see the world’s best players exhibiting their skills, but also because we hope that we can show our visitors the vitality of Cleveland, its people, and its first class facilities.

We hope you’ll agree to get involved in the community in which you live and/or do business by supporting our effort. The information herein will describe the event in more detail and outline available sponsorships. Of course, with an event of this magnitude, we’re also looking for volunteers to help run the event. Please contact Maureen Hole at (216) 283-5197 or Brian McCreary at (440) 343- 3063 if you are interested in volunteering.

A total of four tournaments will be played, including a Men’s and Women’s National Championship and Men’s and Women’s Presidents Cup. The matches will involve more than 300 contestants from throughout the United States and Canada.

We hope you share our enthusiasm and choose to be a part of these championships as a sponsor, volunteer, player, host or spectator.

Cheers,
TheGCPTATournament Committee
