ATA Establishes Founding Members Club

Kamique Properties signs on as initial member

The Anguilla Tennis Academy announced it will establish a Founding Members Club for a limited number of Individuals and Villa Rental Properties. Founding Members will be provided not only a wide range of usage benefits within the ATA, but also a chance take part and be recognized as part of the initial sponsorship group to establish the Academy.

Kamique Properties, the developer of a luxury Villa Resort to be opened in Anguilla in 2007, joined together with the ATA to create the framework for the Founding Members Club and committed to one of the 50 limited Founding Memberships to be offered.

The ATA designed the Founding Members Club to take advantage of the many activities and facilities the ATA will have to offer including court time, group/private lessons, access to all facilities and an opportunity to be part of the larger sport and community develop programs the ATA will lead for Anguilla's youth. "We have been intrigued and impressed with the ATA's efforts in developing a first class Tennis facility that will help foster more youth sports and community oriented programs for Anguilla" said Ira Bloom, Managing Director of Kamique Properties. "The Founding Members club is a unique opportunity for us to take part in the Academy and additionally offer our guests access to the wide range of programs and facilities the ATA has to offer". Mitch Lake, Director of the ATA, is understandably enthusiastic about the program. Lake commented, "I am excited about the Founding Member campaign and am certain that with the participation of villas, hotels, and interested individuals in the community a substantial sponsorship base will be formed to make the facility a reality." Lake also commented, "I applaud Kamique properties for their participation and encourage other villas to get involved in this worthwhile endeavor that will also provide hope and opportunity for our children".
