Sportsmanship Award Voting Now Open!
Sportsmanship is the key to any sport!
Each year at our RTD Tennis Tourney we acknowledge one youth player (ages 8-18) who exemplifies good sportsmanship in all ways both on and off the court.
You have the opportunity to vote either thru our paper ballot system provided at every court (ask a court attendant for assistance) or click below to vote on-line.
The youth's who is chosen at the end of the tournament is acknowledged and their name is added to the Ron Eggert Sportsmanship Aware Plaque.
*History of the Ron Eggert Sportmanship Award8
In 2013, the Hastings tennis community lost a longtime supporter, Ron Eggert. Ron and his doubles partner, Dwaine Glasenapp, played in the RTD Tournament for 34 years.
To Honor his memory, the Hastings Women's Tennis League established the Ron Eggert Sportsmanship Award, sponsored by Roger and Cheryl Burgmeier.
In honor of Ron and his love of the game, his competitive spirit and his good sportsmanship, we are asking the participants and spectators of the Rivertown Days Tennis Tournament to nominate players who exhibit good sportsmanship on and off the tennis court to receive the Ron Eggert Good Sportsmanship Award.
Summer Programming has been up and running with Junior Team Tennis and Junior Drills and Match Play for all youth.
Adults have been involved in Women and Men's Leagues that continue thru the summer as well as lessons and one doubles session.
Tennis is alive in Hastings!
You are invited to get involved this Fall! Fall registrations will be coming in August! Something for kids and adults too!

James Scharr and Elizabeth Henrichs received the 2019 HTA Men's and Women's League Scholarships on May 20, 2019. Both James and Elizabeth have played tennis for many years and have been volunteer coaches. This past winter, they introduced tennis to the middle school OASIS students. They are great mentors to our younger players.
It is awesome to know that when you play in a Hastings league, you will not only have the opportunity to play some competitive tennis, you will also be helping Hastings' students.
