Welcome to the Home Page of  the

Charleston  Area  Ladies'  Tennis  Association

CALTA is a nonprofit 501(c)(7) volunteer-run organization. 

CALTA's mission is to:  1) promote women's tennis in the Charleston Area; 

2) provide a venue for fair play, good sportsmanship and competitive doubles tennis at different levels of ability;

3) identify junior women's tennis needs in the Charleston Area and apply CALTA's

available resources in support of them. (CALTA Charter, art. IV)


CALTA is the successor to Charleston City League,
which had its unofficial start in 1973.

(Click on CALTA Charter for more on CALTA's history.)

As stated in Section II of the CALTA Charter, an individual participates in CALTA
through membership on a team -- and is registered as a member by her team captain. 
An individual interested in joining CALTA should inquire with her local tennis center.

CALTA's 2012-2013 season ended on Tuesday, May 14, 2013,
with a luncheon attended by 530 members!
At the luncheon, awards were presented
to the winning teams in each division (see below).

CALTA's 2013-2014 season started on Tuesday, August 27.
59 teams from 22 tennis centers are playing -- with a current total of 985 members.
New members can be added (by the team captain) at any time during the season.

  If a tennis center currently has four teams and a fifth would like to apply,
the tennis center must have twelve courts available.
