The Philippine American Tennis Association of Tampa Bay (PATA) was established by 21 Filipino American tennis players with their friends last Aug. 5, 2006. 

PATA, a non-profit organization, serves the Tampa Bay area and is open to anyone who is interested to learn and play the game of tennis. Members come from the Greater Tampa Bay area including Brandon, New Tampa, Zephyrhills, Wesley Chapel, Clearwater, Citrus Park, Carrollwood, and South Tampa.

A team tennis tournament among members was held last Dec. 2006 with the championship matches played on Feb. 25th. Upcoming tournaments sets the PATA on a fast pace with members’ ladder tournament (singles, doubles and
mixed doubles), an invitational tournament on April 29th in Orlando against the Orlando and Atlanta teams and an invitational tournament against the Korean tennis group in Tampa sometime in May 2007.  An invitational tournament against its Orlando counterpart was held successfully last November 2006 where the much-coveted Florida Cup was at stake and which PATA earned the right to keep the Cup for the time being.

Racing World Featured in New Reality Show

 Angela Cope is one of six drivers competing in a reality TV show on SPEED based on Microsoft's “Forza Motorsport 2” for the Xbox 360.
(ARA) – A lot of race car drivers come from families that are engrained in the sport. Everybody’s familiar with Dale Earnhardt and Dale Earnhardt Jr., but do you know the Copes?

Derrike Cope is the 1990 Daytona 500 winner, and his twin nieces, Amber and Angela Cope, 23, of Mooresville, N.C., are well on their way to becoming racing legends in their own rites. Both girls started racing go-carts at the age of nine, then moved up to Late Models and are now in the ARCA series.

They already have several titles under their belts, but it’s likely to be Angela’s starring role in SPEED’s new reality series, “Forza Motorsport Showdown,” which is based on Microsoft’s new game, “Forza Motorsport 2” for the Xbox 360, that makes “Cope” a household name again.

Angela Cope is one of six drivers, and the only female, who battled it out this past winter in a real-life competition designed to be the ultimate test of high-performance driving and mechanical skills. Just like in the video game with the same name, racers competed against each other through a roster of competitive motor sport disciplines -- drag racing, road racing, autocross and drifting -- on several different tracks. Only in this competition, the prize wasn’t bragging rights, but $100,000 in a winner-take-all format.  ... more
