Apex Tennis Center Update
from Michele Crouse
Happy New Year! The excitement continues as we get closer to opening the new center. There have been several delays along the project timeline with the Excel Energy delay being the most impactful. As soon as gas and electricity are functional, the court playing surface will be installed. Staff, furniture, work stations, tennis supplies and the like can be brought into the ATC once the facility has passed inspection and the certificate of occupancy is received from the City of Arvada.
At this juncture, we anticipate the Grand Opening on Saturday, Feb. 17th, from 3pm – 6pm, check out this APEX web page for more information.
If you have concerns, questions, or comments please reach out to Michele or Brent, at email@example.com. We value your commitment and dedication to tennis in the Arvada area and are doing our absolute best to get the Apex Tennis Center open as soon as possible.

4×4 Update! – Postponed!
As we’ve been gathering steam and a ton of community support, we regretfully must announce that we will have to postpone the NJTC 4×4 from this fall until next spring. While the Apex Park and Recreation District have truly done everything in their control to make this happen on time, unforeseen circumstances have forced them to push back the opening date for the outdoor portion. As a result of the recent construction boom in the City of Arvada and the metro Denver area, the Apex Tennis Center opening has been delayed. Specific factors include backups in the permitting process and challenges with scheduling qualified subcontractors. Timeline updates will be announced as soon as they are available. If you have any questions regarding this, please don’t hesitate to reach out and email Apex at firstname.lastname@example.org
Lots of dirt is being brought in and compacted to even out the landscape. Existing outdoor courts are being prepped to allow for electrical and post tensioned framing. Youth and adult lessons, camps, drills, TANS, and private lessons continue on at courts within the city. Signs should always be posted, when courts are reserved, but on occasion, signs have gone missing or our pro’s scheduled a spur of the moment lesson. Thank you for moving, should you be asked, when not involved with a league match.
Continue to leave phone messages at the Arvada Tennis Center 303-420-1210 or emailing email@example.com. I return calls once or twice a day and on weekends when it has impact on scheduled leagues play. Racquet stringing operations are transitioning over to the Racquetball and Fitness Center and you can purchase balls, overwraps, and dampeners. RFC staff is learning more about tennis each day, so thank you for supplying as much information as you can, when dropping off a racquet or needing to make a purchase. We’ll always call if we have questions about your stringing request.
Great job dropping off high school keys immediately following your match when playing during the day, or by 8 am the morning following an evening match. Daytime players count on this! The Racquetball and Fitness Center is open 5:30-9 pm Monday – Thursday; Friday 5:30-7 pm; Saturday 7-1; Sunday 8-1. We are open on July 4th from 8-1. Use dedicated parking spaces when picking up/dropping off keys-thank you for not parking along the curb, in fire lanes or disabled spots-the entrance to our facility is narrow.
As always, please reach out to me with any questions, concerns, suggestions, ideas or offers to help repair nets or blow courts so all can have a great time on the court!
