For more than 30 years, USTA League Tennis has been serving up outstanding competition. What began in 1980 with just a few thousand participants nationwide has grown into one of the largest recreational adult leagues in the country, with more than 800,000 players taking to the courts in 2013 alone. By the end of 2013, an estimated 10 million players across the country have competed in USTA League Tennis over the years.
League tennis is also one of the most popular adult recreational sports in Colorado, with 35,000 annual participants. In the last 25 years, Colorado league tennis has experienced growth in 24 of them, having more than tripled in size during that same period. Since 1980, more than 500,000 players have competed in league tennis here in Colorado!
USTA Colorado coordinates a dozen leagues featuring a variety of formats. There are leagues for men's teams, women's teams and mixed doubles teams. There are leagues offering singles play, doubles play, and combined NTRP play. There are brand new USTA FLEX leagues in 2014 which allow players to schedule their own matches. All adult leagues (with the exception of the USTA FLEX leagues) require a USTA membership.
For the past several years, participation in the various divisions of adult tournament play—NTRP, Senior/Age Division, Championship, Family Doubles—has been steadily climbing as players of all ages and abilities are discovering the competitive and social fun of tournament tennis. With nearly 75 tournaments for players ranging from entry-level to championship to choose from, we think there's an event for every player who wants to experience the excitement and fun of tournament tennis who wants to try one—even if they just want to watch.
