4×4 Tennis Tournament

Sign Up Now!  Registration extended until 9/9

Consolation is included, so everyone is guaranteed 2 matches.  We’ll make exceptions for Colorado State Open players for one 4×4 event.

Check out the agenda with a weekend full of excitement for players and spectators.

Don’t be intimidated, it’s the same game just shorter sets.  Here are the easy rules (and we’ll have courtside volunteers to assist):

FAST4 Tennis Rules Overview

  • First to four games wins – It doesn’t matter how you get there, just make sure you do before your opponent does!
  • Tiebreaker at 3 game all – At 3 games all a tiebreak is played to 5 points. A deciding point will be played at 4 points all.
  • No ad scoring – If the score reaches deuce, it’s a sudden death point. The receiver chooses which side to take the serve on. This also applies in doubles with the receiving pair deciding who receives the serve. However the pair cannot change positions. In mixed doubles the player of the same gender shall receive.
  • Don’t play lets – Some FAST4 rules actually play lets, but we are not in this tournament since it causes more issues than it’s worth! 

All finals matches are standard 2/3 sets w/ Coman tiebreaks.  

A set of beautiful Belgian Beer Glasses go to each champion!!!  And raffle prizes are going all weekend long.  

Draws will be posted 9/11

Keystone Tennis Weekend

North Jeffco Tennis Club (NJTC) celebrated their 2nd annual weekend of tennis in Keystone, Colorado.  Combining passionate tennis players, wonderful food and beverages, and beautiful scenery last weekend was simply awesome.

Major kudos go to the volunteer organizers and chefs who made this weekend a huge success!

Lakewood and NJTC Social

Our friends at the Lakewood Tennis Association invited NJTC and even challenged us to play against them at Lakewood Park (Kipling and Alameda).  Lakewood always does it right, so good food and drink was in good supply. This inaugural annual challenge was a morning event starting at 8am on a beautiful day.  Lakewood ended up winning the event and the coveted trophy.

Here are some photographs from the day
