MORE ABOUT MID-TAC:

MID-TAC is the Midwest Section of the American Tennis Association ("ATA" founded in 1916) and has ties to local community tennis organizations in ten Midwestern States (Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin). Member Clubs pay annual dues and have a voice in MID-TAC's development and direction. MID-TAC is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization and all of its officers and committees are volunteers. MID-TAC maintains a positive view toward the family and our community while providing support to our current fifteen (15) Member Clubs. Please select the "Member Clubs" tab above to get details on each 2016 Member Club.
 
The Chicago Defender, originally an African American National Newspaper, reported in an August 21, 1926 article that the 3rd Annual Western Tennis Championship was held in Chicago, Illinois. The 1st “Western” Tennis Association Championship was played in 1924 in Wilberforce, Ohio. The name changed to Midwestern Tennis Association by 1929 and later to MID-TAC. MID-TAC’s original beginnings were in Chicago, Illinois through the involvement of Mother Mary Ann Seames and others. 2016 was, therefore, MID-TAC’s official 93rd Tournament Year.


We also recognized what we deemed to be "MID-TAC Living Legends" who were playing in or attending the 2016 Championships and in the age group of at least 70. 
In addition, as a long term project, MID-TAC has added several other identified "Living Legends" names to the newly added "Living Legends Section" of our website, as well as added names of identified deceased individuals to the "Hall of Fame (Deceased)" Section. Please select the "Home" tab above for the dropdown menu to see the alphabetized names we have identified so far.

Names, details and corrections can be and will be made to the Sections as they are discovered. More details will be added under all names in both Sections of the website as they are given to us. [The website and these sections are still Under Construction].
