Want to Become a Tennis Official in Colorado?

If the answer is yes, we would like to hear from you. Or if you would like to talk through the merits or the process, we would like to hear from you. Your contact through the process is a CTUA Board Member, Tom Conter- please fill out the form below to get in touch!

How Long Does the Process Take?

While the entire process can take as little as one month, two months is a safer timeframe. Also, our first tournament of the year where mentoring can take place is in April.  Mentoring can be arranged through September, so if you are starting the process outside of the March-September period, you could face a lengthy timeframe.
