Tennis Palooza 2019 was a fantastic event and the pictures that follow will prove it! By the numbers: over 4 days we had 178 entries between 139 players, 14 raffle prizes, 5 breweries, 3 food trucks, 2 clothing vendors, 2 50/50 raffle winners, 2 nights of live music and a whole lot of fun!! The weather was nice and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. We collected many racquets for the Colorado Youth Tennis Foundation Racquets for All program and about 100 pairs of shoes for the Soles4Souls charity. It’s heartwarming (and much appreciated) that so many participants donated to those who are considered less fortunate.
Great time in the mountains!
Thanks to everyone who attended our 3rd annual Keystone weekend. The weather held for us this year which means it was a great success in my book!! Plenty of rum punch and leis for Friday nights Luau, lots of great tennis and a tremendous Italian night on Saturday were some of the highlights.
We had a super fun time kicking off the summer and enjoying the APEX Tennis Center. There were lot’s of drills with the pros, a high-level tennis exhibition match, silent auction, and food/beverages.
There is a new USTA 7.0 Mixed Up/Down League starting soon. An Up/Down Clinic is on May 24th. See below for details on both.
Did you know it only costs $13 for a child to play tennis for an entire year in Guatemala?
Yes, you read that correctly—only $13 for a year’s worth of lessons with a local tennis pro in Antigua. After the introduction of tennis last summer, many of the children at Escuela Integrada want to continue learning the sport.
Support tennis in Guatemala today by sponsoring a student’s lessons.
NJTC’s new League Coordinators, Jessica and Laura, will be conducting our annual, mandatory captain meetings as listed below. Captains and co-captains need to attend one of these two meetings. USTA changes, updates for court usage at the ATC for League play and the new password to the Captains page on our website will be discussed. For 2019 there will also be a new process in place for connecting players with teams with the hope that everyone who wants to play in a league, can.
