As you may have heard by now, USTA National issued a statement on March 13th to all USTA Members that they have suspended all USTA-sanctioned events (leagues and tournaments included) through April 20, 2020 due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
At this time, we are making no changes to our schedule for Summer Socials. As the situation evolves, we will adjust accordingly.
Each league is impacted differently so please read the details carefully for each of them as they apply to you.
CTA Trio league season is cancelled for 2020 and registration on TennisLink has been stopped.
The suspension of league play affects 3 out of 7 weeks. At this time, the league will be shortened to a 4-5 week season.
Opting In or Out & Refunds
All registered teams/players have the option to opt-out of the league and receive a full refund.
Currently, the suspension only impacts one day of the league season…4/20.
Captains will be responsible for dispersing refunds to their individual players for the individual player registrations as well as each player’s portion of the team fee.
WPTC will continue to monitor USTA’s direction concerning league activities taking place after April 20.
If you have any questions concerning leagues, please contact Patricia Robertson by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Did you know that the Wash Park Tennis Club is run entirely by an all-volunteer board?
The ALL VOLUNTEER WPTC Board members oversee the operations, activities and events the club has put on over the past 55 years. Without folks volunteering to be on the board, the club would have to stop providing various opportunities to play tennis.
If you're ready to step up and be part of a tennis organization beloved by the Denver tennis community, there are currently 4 open positions that need to be filled as soon as possible.
Fall Weekend Trip Director
Contact WPTC President, Gordon Rulon, if you're interested.
The club is looking for someone to fill the open position of Tournaments Director on the Board of Directors.
This volunteer manages all aspects of the club’s annual Clyde Rogers and Chet Niemeyer tennis tournaments. The primary goal is to run these tournaments to be fun, fair and competitive, while continuing the long-standing tradition of a quality experience for players and fans, such that they’ll want to return to the tournament year after year.
Registration closes Friday, April 20 at 8pm MT.
