"Without Whitney tennis, one of my biggest accomplishments in life would have never become reality. Going from a freshman in high school, playing tennis because I wanted to follow in my sister's footsteps, to a second place Girls Doubles win in the State Tennis Tournament my senior year was a definite highlight of my experience with the Whitney Tennis Program.

"Watching the program grow and excel from players only making it to the first round of regionals to actually qualifying in State gets you pretty excited about what this program has to offer.

"Whitney tennis gave me growth, talented and invested coaches, lasting friendships, and unlimited support through it all. We all became a family and Whitney tennis will always be a part of my life. "

-- Andrea Rojas,
Whitney High School Tennis Team,
Class of 2011

Just wanted to keep you up to date on what ACE is doing here in Whitney, Texas. 

We have received some 39 very nice donations from individuals and corporations and have also applied to three Foundations/Grants for funding and several other Foundations are being considered.  We have embarked upon an ambitious program to build 8 new tennis courts with an original budget of $800,000.  These new courts will facilitate tennis practice, dual matches, hosting of tennis tournaments, our summer tennis camps and ultimately improve the quality of tennis in Whitney. The high school and the school district have provided land for these courts, near the high school.  Currently, there are two dilapidated courts which are not even located near the high school and these are not adequate for working with over 20 high school players; our program has out-grown our facilities.

Doubles Tennis in Whitney

Some great news was revealed in the local newspaper The Lakelander last week. The Bond Project has nearly two million dollars in left over bond funds following the construction of the district’s new middle school.  The Whitney ISD Board of Trustees is discussing options on projects where these funds may be used.  The superintendent, Gene Solis reported a non-profit organization has been formed by individuals working to raise money for tennis courts.  Four courts with lights would cost around $365,000, he said, but the group’s goal is to build eight courts with lights, which would allow Whitney to host meets.  The superintendent said the district could consider setting aside half the cost of the tennis courts to combine with any funds raised by the organization.  The decision on which of the projects may be funded could be finalized as early as this December or possibly the January 2015 school board meeting.  With this in mind, we are now targeting the middle of the summer of 2015 to have our funds available with a contract and construction under way by the fall of 2015.  That would mean the facility would be available for play for the tennis season of 2016! 

Also new on the front is our website, check it out.  We will continue to add to and improve the site so you can see firsthand what ACE is doing!
