April Showers bring May flowers...
And new websites too. Come take a look at the newly-released USTA Colorado website.

Careers in Tennis
It's spring, which means that there are a flurry of new job announcements and career opportunities. Check out the latest announcements from South Suburban, Foxridge Swim and Tennis and the Cardio Tennis workshop at Valley Country Club, all on our new Job Fair page.

Tennis Play Days Series
The USTA Colorado Play Day Tennis Series is a partnership between USTA Colorado and tennis facilities in the Denver area. The series provides children and their families the opportunity to participate in as many Play Days as they would like, thereby providing more chances to serve, rally and score, and practice the skills needed during JTT league play or sanctioned tournament match play.

Kids will receive a Play Day Passport, which will help them track which Play Days they attended. The more you play, the more chances they get to win prizes from USTA Colorado.
