Executive Committee


Brian Bella


As a member since 1994 I’m looking forward to combining past experience with new ideas to continue to provide VTA members with the best club possible.

The VTA should be a welcoming place for those looking for community while having fun playing a sport they love.

Come play with us! ?

I have been with the VTA for a long time! My tennis is more “social-focused”, though I want to play more and improve my game. I really appreciate the opportunity to play with other members of the LGBQT community, and the Friday evenings in the summer are a highlight for me after a long work week. I live a very active lifestyle, and am a yoga enthusiast, cyclist, snowboarder and just learned to ski, showing you can really teach an old dog some new tricks! I enjoy all this and more, but it means I’m more a jack of all trades and master of none. I look forward to working with members to facilitate some great tennis.

Vangie Johnson

Play Director

I have enjoyed every year that I have been a member of the VTA. It truly is a great club with a fantastic group of players. Coming back to serve on the Board is a no-brainer for me, after taking time off for a couple of years. The club gives us so much – social events, friendships, laughter and tennis – and it is my pleasure to give back in my own humble way. I hope to meet most of you during the social events we have planned this year, and also on the courts of course.
