Is it too early to think about Labor Day?

Add this share

Yes, yes. We know it’s a little too early to be considering plans for Labor Day Weekend. I mean, we haven’t even gotten through the Atlanta Pride Festival. (That, by the way, begins July 4.)

But in case you’re a planner, consider this: The Atlanta Team Tennis Association, the area’s gay tennis league, just opened registration for the Peach International Tennis Championships, its signature event set for Aug. 29 to Sept. 1. The tournament has divisions for just about everyone, from men’s singles to mixed doubles and events for those over 40. Fees range from $96 to $132.

More than 225 players took part last year, the event’s 20th anniversary. For more, read the Southern Voice sports column I wrote about it last August.

In other ATTA developments, there’s a social for women tonight at 7 p.m. The group has also scheduled its variety show for Aug. 16. The event raises funds for the Peach and AIDS Survival Project.
