Time to start planning for the new league season

Hey BTA members and area players. Let’s face it, the pandemic-plagued 2020 league season had its ups and downs. But by the time spring rolls around this year things are promising to look much better for tennis league action.

And that 2021 Colorado Tennis league season will be here before you know it. Since deadlines for registering teams come four to five weeks before the seasons start, now is the time to check out all the league opportunities in our BTA 2021 League Brochure, available on the BTA website League Page.

Want to play but don’t have a team? Sign up on the BTA website Find-A-League List to let captains know you’re interested. After all, if they don’t know you’re out there, they can’t find you. And don’t forget that it’s a two-way street. If you see a captain looking for players, reach out to them (don’t just wait for them to contact you). Last word on this – if someone gets in touch with you, please respond back (even if you already filled your interest).

Plan to captain a team? Or want to give it a try? Contact our BTA League Coordinator, Kathy Webber, at puppourri@hotmail.com and let her know.  If you’re not familiar with how league works, how to captain, the registration process, etc., Kathy’s the one to walk you through every step of the process.

Need players? Again, check out the BTA website Find-A-League List. This is a great resource for finding people to start a team with or add to an existing roster (We just cleared the database and started fresh, so check back often as new players add themselves to the list for the coming season.)

One final note: Due to the craziness of 2020, USTA made the decision not to adjust players ratings at the end of last year. So, the rating you started the 2020 season with is the rating you ended up with – and the same one you’ll be starting with in the new season.

See you on the courts!
