Since 1985 the Greater New Orleans Tennis Association (GNOTA) has promoted athletic competition in the sport of tennis among the gay population of New Orleans. We have a dedicated group ranging from novice to advanced tournament players. For the last eight years, we have hosted the Fleur de Lis Tennis Tournament held at the UNO Tennis Center with about 100 competitors from across the nation along with some international entries. It is sanctioned by the Gay and Lesbian Tennis Association (GLTA), a member organization of the United States Tennis Association (USTA).

GNOTA plays EVERY SATURDAY MORNING from 9 AM - 12 PM. The cost is $10 per person. Balls are provided per court. All levels of players are encouraged to come and participate. The contact person for more information and Saturday play is Ron Budenich (

Open Play is from 9 - 10 AM, and 40-minute timed matches* are from 10 AM - 12 Noon (*when the number of players exceeds 12). We place players in singles and doubles matches with the intent to challenge players to get better, and to make the matches a little more exciting. Beginners to advanced players are welcome!

NOTE: 4 weeks before our tournament, we try to allow doubles partners in the same bracket to play each other for practice.

GNOTA does not discriminate or deny membership on the basis of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion or creed.
