The SCTA will periodically recognize individuals who go above and beyond in support of the SCTA's mission to keep tennis alive and growing in northern Solano County.
Our local tennis world changed dramatically in early 2021 when the USTA announced that they were restarting league play post-pandemic and In-Shape management made decisions that affected our ability to continue organized activities on club courts.
The result was a blur of activity that resulted in Centennial Park serving as our de facto home base for tennis and the Solano Community Tennis Association being incorporated as the voice of tennis for the community.
A website was key to establishing our presence for both our community and the public at large. Al Arevalo stepped forward to make that happen. Even as the association was coming together, he was developing a plan for a website. He presented that proposal to the SCTA Board of Directors at its initial meeting on August 28, 2021. The directors accepted his recommendation to commit to the Groove.cm application while it was still in beta for a one-time licensing fee.
He registered the domain name scta.tennis and then worked to build content. The Solano Community Tennis Association (SCTA) website went live in October of 2021 because of the time and effort Al expended to make it happen. He continued to develop the site and add content until early 2022, when his soccer duties severely limited his volunteer time.
Thanks, Al, for bringing the SCTA to life on the internet.
