Tennis

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.

BSTC ADULT TENNIS LEAGUE POLICIES AND PROCEDURES- 2018

 

Basic Principles

A Team for Everyone. Best efforts will be made to ensure that every member who submits a registration form by the deadline will get to 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. There are 6 locations used for BSTC home league matches: BSTC, Broomfield High School, Broomfield City Courts, Northmoor, Wildgrass and Depot Hill. League administration will make best effort to provide each team with an equal number of home league matches at BSTC courts.

NTRP level practice times. Specific NTRP levels have scheduled practice times and are listed on the BSTC website under tennis calendar. Any BSTC member may practice at the designated time for their NTRP level.

Equal playing time during regular league play. Captains shall give each player a relatively equal number of playing opportunities during league play based on availability of all players. Players with limited availability may receive limited play.

Play may not be equal among players during playoffs. Playoff rosters will be determined by captains who may decide to schedule the players with the best records and offer the best chance for team wins. Captains are encouraged to consult with the Tennis Director for playoff scheduling.

Player preferences in scheduling. Weekly league play will be determined by captains, who shall take into account player availability, partner preferences, side preferences and singles v. doubles preferences.

Your input is valuable and welcome. In the fall BSTC members will be sent a survey about their tennis league experience and captain performance to provide input to the BSTC Board, Tennis Director and Adult League Coordinator for future selection of captains and league management. Anytime throughout the year you may also email questions and concerns to BSTC.tennis@gmail.com.

Team Formation

Ultimate authority over team formation. The Tennis Director will have oversight of and is responsible for team formation, with the assistance of the BSTC Tennis Committee and the Adult League Coordinator. Any questions regarding team formation should be directed to Tennis Director or emailed to BSTC.tennis@gmail.com.

Playing at NTRP level. Absent extraordinary circumstances and approval of the Tennis Director, all players shall play at their assigned USTA rating level.

League Registration. In January after the CTA calendar is published, league registration forms will be available on the BSTC website. Deadline to turn in BSTC registration forms is generally the second week of February.  A cut-off date of 3/15 may be enforced for adding new players to a team, with exceptions made only by the Tennis Director.

Individuals forming their own league teams. All players are encouraged to form their own league teams. Players who want to play on the same team should have one person from their group submit a list of players up to the maximum for that league to the BSTC tennis email (BSTC.tennis@gmail.com) by the submission deadline. All players must agree to be on the team and still must submit their individual BSTC registration form. Maximum number of selected teammates for each league vary and are:  USTA Adult, 2.5 only: 7 players; All other USTA Adult:  10 players; Mixed Leagues:  8 people; Daytime Doubles:  8 players; Summer Daytime: 7 players and Twilight: 7 players.

Team Formation Process:  In January, the Club will distribute to the Club membership a list of all players by level and the projected number of captains needed at each level, along with the Tennis Registration form.  The Tennis Director and Adult League Coordinator will select captains, who will meet to start forming teams and will use Tennis Registration forms to develop rosters.  Captains will be invited to a mandatory training meeting and to have the opportunity to further meet with other captains at their level.  Captains will not make any commitments to players until the second captains’ meeting is concluded and the Tennis Director and/or Adult League Coordinator have finalized teams.

Players may be added to already formed teams. To create a numerical balance for each team, it may be necessary to add players to already formed teams. These determinations will be made in consultation with the affected captains.  All players who want to play league will be placed on a BSTC team with a possible exception noted above.

Nonmember players. Nonmembers will be invited to play on BSTC teams only when needed to fill out a team and when approved by the Tennis Committee and the Tennis Director or Adult League Coordinator. Nonmembers must pay a nonmember fee of $50 per league and may only use BSTC facilities for league play and scheduled team practices. 

BSTC may not offer teams for all USTA and CTA leagues. Due to limited court availability the BSTC will offer leagues that allow the maximum number of members an opportunity to play. Member interest may also affect league offerings.

League Fee

In order to offset the costs of adult league administration and additional court rentals, a league fee of $25 per individual for one league, or $50 per individual for unlimited league participation, must be included with your league registration form.
