About the CTA
Grassroots tennis is our game.
We plant it, grow it, and nurture it.
We’re USTA Colorado.
It’s time to play.
A District of the United States Tennis Association, USTA Colorado (Colorado
Tennis Association) is the governing body of tennis in our state. We are one of
six districts in the
which includes Idaho, Montana, Utah, Wyoming and Nevada.
Founded in 1955, USTA Colorado's mission is to grow tennis in our state. We do
this in a number of ways. We provide grants to public and private groups who
want to introduce tennis to their communities. We offer scholarships to players
who seek to take their game to the next level. We coordinate adult league play
for 25,000 participants across Colorado, and offer many recreational programs
for junior players of all ages and abilities. We reach out to players of diverse
cultural backgrounds, to mentally and physically challenged athletes, and to
under-privileged communities across the state. Our sanctioned tournament
schedule offers more than 130 events in 2008 for players of all ages and
abilities, including opportunities for wheelchair athletes.
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 are 22,000 members strong, but our scope is not confined to those players
alone. We represent the nearly 500,000 tennis players in our state, providing
information and opportunities to play for each and every one of them. Our
publications reach out to players around Colorado and in neighboring states. We
strive to make tennis available to anyone who is interested in our sport – all
ages, all abilities, all backgrounds.
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.
About the USTA
Formed in 1881, the
is a not-for-profit organization devoted to the development of tennis. The USTA
establishes and maintains rules of play and high standards of amateurism and
good sportsmanship. In addition to its comprehensive system of championship
level play, the USTA has also focused on competition for unranked players
through league play and tournaments run exclusively for those players. Special
USTA programs have been beneficial to organizations looking for guidance on
programs from the school level to senior play.
