The Town of Superior is excited to partner with local tennis professional Ted Murray to offer a variety of youth and adult programs this summer. Ted, founder of Tennis from the Heart, previously led the Town’s tennis program for 4 years before spending last summer directing the #3 rated adult tennis camp in the world in Vermont. Ted chose to remain in Colorado this summer and is excited about returning to Superior to run the Town’s junior tennis program as well as an expanded adult program.

If it works out that there isn’t an appropriate team for you, we will apply your payment to the CARA league that is a bit less competitive and is open to all levels. Registration for USTA closes in mid-April and the season runs from June through July. One 90 minute practice each week on Wednesday afternoon, matches played on Mondays. Teams may qualify to the state finals. Register early so we have time to assign you to the proper team that will be perfect for you. W, Practices between 2-6 p; M, Matches between 9a - 2p.
Private lessons (ages 14+) are an excellent way to improve rapidly by focusing on your own needs, improving your weaknesses and adding new shots and strategies to your game. Lessons can be shared by 2 people or up to 4 at the same rate. Most lessons are at a set time on a weekly basis. Lessons will be with either Ted Murray or another experienced, certified professional.
