Welcome Fall!

Tennis-Palooza was a blast!

Our annual end of season blast, Tennis-Palooza, held Fri-Sun, September 24-26, was a run-away success! With 220 tournament participants over 3 days there was a lot going on! Food trucks and live music added to the festive atmosphere, and I venture to say, most participants went home at the end of the weekend exhausted but happy!

Leagues may be over, but ...

It’s the Final Count-Down!

Friday-Sunday, September 24-26, 2021

Registration for Tournament Play is now over, but you can still enjoy the party with your friends by registering as a Spectator for only $10  (includes beer and wine tickets plus souvenir tumbler)!

FOOD • DRINKS • LIVE MUSIC

Wrapping up the season in style!

The tennis weekend up at Keystone, August 13-15, was a blast! 69 people enjoyed a fantastic weekend of fun and friendly competition, awesome food, and lots of friendship.

Next up came some more friendly competition at the Lakewood Challenge on Saturday, August 28. (32) NJTC players and (32) LTC players faced off for a plaque and bragging rights. The plaque will hang in the Apex Tennis Center lobby once again this year. Congrats NJTC players, and thank you to LTC for providing great food and great competition!

And finally, we’re putting a bow on it with Tennis Palooza. Part tournament play, part party, this unsanctioned 8 Game Pro Set tennis event is not to be missed. Join us Fri-Sun, September 24-26 at the Apex Tennis Center for some great competition and more fun! Sign up is now open on USTA’s website for tournament play and on this website for spectators.

More Summer Fun to Come

With the very successful Breakfast at Wimbledon fundraiser event (held Saturday, July 10) in the bag, we’re looking forward to even more fun events!

Next up, 69 lucky people will be attending the tennis retreat weekend up at Keystone August 13-15.

Following soon after we’ll be hosting a special summer social that we call the Lakewood Challenge on Saturday, August 28, held in two shifts from 4 – 9 pm. (32) NJTC players and (32) LTC players will face off in some friendly competition for a plaque and bragging rights! $20 for players; spectators may attend with dinner included for $12.

Yet one more BIG event coming up as the tennis season winds down is the 2021 Tennis Palooza,  September 24-26. This is part non-sanctioned tournament play and part party. Don’t miss out on this super-fun event; deadline to sign up for play is September 17. Spectators ($10) are welcome to enjoy the party too

Good Things Come in 3’s!

Summer is in full swing and I hope you are making the most of it. I know that some of you are!!!

Our KEYSTONE mountain getaway sold out in 90 minutes (we do a have waitlist going).

BREAKFAST AT WIMBLEDON took place this past weekend (Sat., July 10) and by all accounts it was a smashing success! The event was attended by 80 enthusiastic guests (most wearing white) who enjoyed great weather, tennis, fish & chips, strawberries & cream, and mimosas and Pimm’s cups. Funds raised via our silent auction will support not only ongoing improvements at the Apex Tennis Center but will also lay the foundation for a scholarship program which directly benefits youth who would not otherwise be able to afford tennis programming at the ATC

If you missed out on those two events, I certainly hope you will be able to take part in our last and biggest event of the season… TENNIS-PALOOZA 2021!

Who: NJTC will not only market the event to its members, but to other clubs in the surrounding area, i.e. Rolling Hills, Lakewood, Boulder, Broomfield, Meadow Creek.

What: Tennis-Palooza is part non-sanctioned 3 day Tournament played in an 8 game pro set format and part end of season party. Prizes will be awarded to top finishers, beer & wine are included in the entry fee, food trucks and music round out the weekend.  Friendly competition with a festive twist!

When: September 24-26, 2021

Where: Apex Tennis Center

Why: Because we can and we like to have fun!!

How: A blast will be sent out with details when registration opens later this month.

Start locking in your partners(s) now. There will be draws for:

  • Mens/Womens Singles and Doubles
  • Mixed doubles
  • Mixed Up/Down

This is our 3rd year holding this event and it just keeps getting bigger and better. Mark your calendars! More information to follow.
