Who we are
Founded in 1955, USTA Colorado is a district affiliate of the United States Tennis Association, one of six affiliates of the Intermountain Tennis Association, and the governing body of tennis in Colorado.
What we do
Our mission is to promote and develop the growth of tennis in Colorado, coordinating recreational and competitive tennis opportunities for players of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. A not-for-profit organization, USTA Colorado invests 100% of its resources into growing the game.
- We provide grants to organizations that want to introduce tennis to their communities and we offer scholarships to junior players who seek to take their game to the next level.
- We coordinate adult league play for 35,000 Coloradans of all ages and abilities, and sanction competitive tournament play for 20,000 players across the state.
- We offer recreational and competitive league and player development programs for tens of thousands of junior players at every skill level.
- We support tennis opportunities for wheelchair players, and for those with disabilities of all kinds.
Where we are
We are in the parks. We are in recreation centers and in private clubs. We are in schools helping physical education teachers introduce our kids to a game that they can play for a lifetime, keeping them fit and healthy. We believe that fundamental tennis principles like sportsmanship, hard work and personal responsibility translate into every area of life. Through tennis we are helping people realize their potential both on and off the court.
How we do it
We are 25,000 members strong, but our scope is not confined to those players alone. We represent the half-million tennis players in our state, providing information and opportunities to play for each and every one of them. We reach out to all players, including those of diverse cultural backgrounds, mentally and physically challenged athletes, and under-served communities. Diversity & Inclusion is a strategic priority for USTA Colorado and one of our core values.
We invite you to find out more about the lifetime sport of tennis. We will help you find a court, find a program, find a league or find a team. We will help you put the FUN back in FITNESS. So whether you want to learn to play tennis, get back into the sport, or just find more opportunities to play the game, we’re here to help.
