Broomfield Swim and Tennis Club (BSTC) offers its Members 6 lighted outdoor courts and a wide variety of tennis programs and activities for tennis players of all ages and abilities including: leagues, clinics, group and private lessons, and club tennis socials. Supporting one of the largest Adult and Junior league programs in the state, our club organized teams participate in USTA, CTA, and Junior Team Tennis Leagues. Every Member of BSTC has the opportunity to participate in a league program, and everyone is encouraged to play at their appropriate NTRP level. If you’ve never played in an organized tennis league, there’s no need to be shy. Leagues range from social to highly competitive depending on skill level and team makeup, but the number one goal for everyone is to have fun and enjoy playing tennis with other tennis enthusiasts. Througout the summer, BSTC tennis clinics are run regularly by qualified Tennis Instructors who put participants through a wide range of drills designed to improve their tennis game in a casual and social atmosphere, all while getting a great workout. There’s almost certainly a clinic or two a week that will fit into your schedule and all Members are encouraged to drop in and check out the action. BSTC Tennis Instructors offer affordable tennis lessons to both Member and non-member individuals and groups. Check out our Tennis Staff page for more information.

To the high demand for our league teams, only members are eligible to participate on BSTC adult leagues. Exceptions are granted by our Tennis Director in rare cases where we need to recruit non-members in order to have enough players at a given level to field a complete team (mainly at the 4.5 level), although in no cases are members allowed to play as nonmembers in the first year after dropping an active membership. Please visit the Registration page for details on how to create your access to our system prior to registering. Important Information About Adult Leagues

BSTC ADULT TENNIS LEAGUE POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
A Team for Everyone: Best efforts will be made to ensure that every member who registers for a league by the deadline will play on a BSTC team. On occasion, this may not be possible (e.g. if 20 women but only 4 men sign up for a mixed doubles team). League play at home courts: Several locations are used for BSTC home league matches, including BSTC, Broomfield High School, Broomfield city courts, Northmoor and Depot Hill. League administration will make every effort to give each team an equal number of home matches at BSTC courts. NTRP level practice times: Each NTRP level by gender will have scheduled practice times on Saturdays beginning in the spring and continuing throughout the season, depending on participation. Any BSTC member may practice at the designated time for their NTRP level. Playing time: Captains are expected to give all players a relatively equal number of playing opportunities during each season, based on availability. Players with limited availability may get limited play. Weekly match play will be determined by the captains, who will also take into account partner preferences and singles/doubles preferences. Playing time may not be equal among players during playoffs. Playoff rosters will be determined by captains who may schedule the players with the best records in order to give the team the best chance for wins. Captains are encouraged to consult with the Tennis Director for playoff scheduling. Member feedback: Your input is valuable and welcome. Each fall, BSTC members are sent a survey to provide input about their tennis league experience to the BSTC Board, Tennis Director and Adult League Coordinator. This feedback drives improvement goals for the following season. You may email questions and concerns anytime during the year to BSTC.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Team Formation and Management
Playing at NTRP level: Every player shall play at their assigned USTA rating level, absent special circumstances and approval of the Tennis Director. League Registration: After the CTA calendar is published in January, information and deadlines for league registration will be emailed to the membership and posted on the website. Forming league teams: Players are encouraged to form their own league teams. Individuals who want to play on the same team can have one person from their group submit a list of players to BSTC.email@example.com by the registration deadline. All players must still submit their own individual BSTC registration. The maximum roster submission is as follows: USTA Adult W2.5 only 7 players All other USTA Adult 10 players Mixed Leagues 8 players Daytime Doubles 8 players Summer Daytime 7 players Twilight 7 players >>> This process is not required to be placed on a team. <<< Team Formation Process: Immediately following the registration deadline for each league, the Tennis Director and Adult League Coordinator will determine the number of teams needed at each level and confirm captains and co-captains for each team. The captains will meet by level to form teams and develop rosters using the registration lists. There will be a captains meeting to review policies and procedures, discuss new CTA rules, finalize the rosters and get USTA team numbers. With approval from the Tennis Director and Adult League Coordinator, players may be added to existing teams in certain situations, e.g. to allow a new club member to play, create numerical balance for each team, replace an injured player, etc. These determinations will be made in consultation with the affected captains. Leagues offered: BSTC may not offer teams for every USTA or CTA league due to court availability and/or lack of member interest. League Fee: In order to offset the costs of adult league administration and additional court rentals, a league fee of $50 per player will be charged at registration for unlimited league participation. If a player is only on one team during the season, a $25 refund will be given in the fall. Non-member players: Non-members will be invited to play on BSTC teams only when needed to fill out a team and with approval by the Tennis Director and Adult League Coordinator. Non-members must pay a fee of $50 per league and may only use BSTC facilities for league play and scheduled team practices. Under no circumstances is an individual allowed to play as a non-member in the first year following dropping an active membership.

Milan Norgauer Senior Staff Pro
I was born and raised in California and was truly fortunate to grow up in a tennis-playing and tennis-loving family. I was a ranked junior in Southern California and played for two years on the practice squad at UCLA. While a graduate student, I coached the men’s tennis team for four years at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. More recently, I have been the Assistant Tennis Pro at Cheyenne Country Club and coached several teams and individuals to state championships at Central High School in Cheyenne. I remain active in competition as well, competing in a number of national tournaments in recent years, as well as various tournaments in the Front Range region. I am profoundly grateful to be joining the staff at Broomfield Swim and Tennis Club, and am enthusiastic to work alongside Noah to be a part of a great tradition of tennis in Broomfield. I believe that tennis is the greatest game in the world, but that it is more than just a game or a sport…it is a way of life and it has the ability to build community, establish friends for life, and make us better people. I look forward to meeting all of the club members as quickly as possible, and I am available immediately for private and group lessons, and to assist the club members as they pursue this wonderful game of tennis. See you on the courts!
