Winning Touch Tennis Named Tennis Club of the Year
(QUAKERTOWN, PA) — The Middle States Eastern PA District of the United States Tennis Association (USTA) selected Winning Touch Tennis of Lehigh Valley as its Tennis Club of the Year.
“Reasons cited for the award included Winning Touch’s modern, state-of-the-art facility, much in part to Universal Fabric Structures unique SPORTHALL structure, and for eliminating the practice of charging membership fees making tennis more accessible to more people”, said Bill Kurtain, co-owner of Winning Touch Tennis. Added co-owner Steve Dansky, “The Board concluded that these qualities promote the game of tennis, along with the various USTA programs that Winning Touch Tennis supports.”
Modeled after their successful indoor tennis complex in Princeton, Winning Touch Tennis in Allentown offers Lehigh Valley tennis enthusiasts of all levels state-of-the-art play on their four indoor and two outdoor courts. The Allentown SPORTHALL, a fabric structure built by Universal Fabric Structures of Quakertown, PA, is one of several planned Winning Touch Tennis indoor tennis facilities in the offing for co-owners Dansky and Kurtain.
Innovations in fabric structures have come a long way from tarpaulin structures of yesteryear. Complete mechanical systems and all the creature comforts of a brick-and-mortar structure can be had in these flexible, durable structures custom-designed to not only the job site but to customer specifications. “The Sporthall package and continuous innovations offered by Universal Fabric Structures are consistent with our mission to own and operate state-of-the-art tennis facilities for year-round play” added Dansky.
The Allentown Winning Touch Tennis structure is a high-tech, player-friendly tennis court facility with state-of-the-art indoor lighting and acrylic-layered court surface, featuring a cheerful, bright environment. The translucent fabric construction provides the added bonus of maximizing winter sunshine to create solar heat absorption while blocking significant amounts of damaging UV rays. In addition to the specialized court surface, the courts are colored the same blue and green used by the U.S. Open.
The facility offers court time for experienced players as well as lessons for beginners and those looking to improve their game. A variety of membership levels are available and include: unlimited play, contract court time, family and junior memberships, as well as leagues, clinics, group, and private instruction.
