Mother Nature delivered the goods exactly when the Atlanta Team Tennis Association needed it: Last weekend for its annual club championship that brought 85 players to center court.

The gay tennis league hosted its Chattahoochee Doubles Classic on March 11-13 at courts in Piedmont Park and the DeKalb Tennis Center. The event features ATTA members and friends, while the group’s much larger Peach International Tennis Championships over Labor Day Weekend attracts hundreds of participants from across the country.

Last weekend, the Hooch offered competition in three divisions: doubles, mixed doubles and women’s doubles.

6.5 Doubles
Adam Helewski and Wes Williams
