Attention All Pickle Ball & Tennis Players

For the tennis and pickle ball players in Sea Trail, our courts will be opening soon. Once a few minor cracks on the courts are repaired, I will send out another email blast advising of the opening date.
When our tennis courts finally open for play, please note:
  • we will not be able to continually disinfect the gate or court area, so play at your own risk.
  • you are strongly urged to bring your own disinfectant wipes and/or spray for use on the gate prior to entering and exiting.
  • the benches have been removed to prevent cross infection and discourage gatherings.
  • you are also encouraged to adhere to the guidelines the USTA have established for their upcoming spectator-less tournaments
  • each player should bring their own can of marked tennis balls and use them only when they are serving.
  • touching racquets should replace fist bumps or handshakes
  • please avoid touching the net or other surfaces.
  • at this time, we are restricting the use of the courts for pickleball or tennis to residents only.
  • please maintain the six-foot distance requirement before, during and after play.
  • no large gatherings (>10 persons in the court area) will be permitted

If you see violations of these restrictions, please report them to our STMA administrator 910-579-5374 or

New Policy for Remote Participation in STMA Committee Meetings

This time of imposed social distancing has highlighted the need for a policy for remote participation in meetings.  A policy:  STMA Remote Participation in Meetings Policy & Conditions was adopted by the STMA Board on April 28, 2020.  This policy (found on the Important Documents page of the website) is now in effect and is applicable to all STMA Committees in the conduct of committee business.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Specials Being Offered by Local Restuarants

The Social Committee Chair brought to our attention that it might be nice to support local restaurants that are having a very difficult time now with the closure of dining-in at their restaurants.  In the past they have both been so good to Sea Trail residents in hosting Social Committee events.  They reached out to her and she asked that we share their information with all Sea Trail residents.
