Upcoming Play Days
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.

USTA Colorado wants to know about your PLAY DAYS
If you are hosting any type of play day we would love to know about it. If you aren’t hosting any and would like more information about what a Play Day is, then please contact Dan Lewis. Many facilities that we have reached out to have told us that they have a “match day” every week as part of their JTT practice schedule. Guess what! Those are considered Play Days! We can provide you with materials and marketing exposure to help you grow your numbers. Or if it is a “private” Play Day, that is okay too but we’d still like to know about them.
