    Starting in the 2024 Championship year, USTA National will be using a five line format for Adult 40 & over leagues - 1 Singles, 4- Doubles - at all 2024 Adult 40 & Over National Championships.

    For the 2024 Championship year, the USTA Intermountain Adult Programs Committee has voted that the format for all 2024 USTA League Adult 40 & Over Sectional Championships will remain at 4 lines- 1 singles 3 doubles.

    The USTA Intermountain Adult Programs Committee looked at many factors when making our decision including facility availability, player feedback, district and coordinators feedback and we feel at this time the 4 court format is the best option for our 2024 Adult 40 & Over Sectional Championships.

    We are possessive about our tennis courts and availability.  We believe pickleball courts won't be implemented by DPR at Wash Park.  Competing with pickleball for space has become an issue.  And now pickleball is seeing noise complaints.  Here's a local article about some of the issues.

    Tennis continues to be a broad-based and popular sport, for young and old alike. The staggering growth in participation the past several years has created a strain on infrastructure and program availability. USTA CO is committed to communities’ access to tennis and is partnering with Denver Parks & Recreation to pilot Tennis Champions, an awareness and advocacy campaign, and the Home Court Advantage contest to nominate Denver public park tennis courts for small improvements (up to $5000). The campaign will broaden across the state after the initial April 1 – June 30 focus with Denver Parks & Recreation. We must work together so tennis can grow at pace with its popularity. 

    Tennis Champions are people passionate about tennis; willing to share their voice to support the sport they love. Tennis Champions share the lifelong health and social benefits of the sport with others and their community and agree to:

    • Stay connected
    • Give input
    • Help to tell the story

    USTA Colorado announced the annual winners of Service Awards.  Our own Leagues Coordinator, Patricia Robertson, has won the Clyde Rogers Award (Contributions to Recreational Players) for her tireless contributions to our club's members. 

    Patricia works extremely hard in coordinating with CTA league programming and the City of Denver for court scheduling, as well as getting new club members involved with a club team.

    This award shows that our members recognize and appreciate her efforts!

    Congratulations to Patricia!
