Tennis Programs

Over the years, Columbine Knolls has developed an excellent tennis program consisting of youth and adult instruction, junior teams, tournaments and league play.  In an effort to provide the highest quality tennis programming for the residents of the southwest area, Columbine Knolls Recreation District and Foothills Park and Recreation District have formed a partnership.  

There is no charge to reserve any of the public courts listed below.  You must have a key membership to reserve any of the private courts at Marker Park or the Columbine Knolls "Pool" courts.  You do not have to reserve a court to play but keep in mind you could be bumped from the court if someone has reserved the court. To Reserve a court call the CKRD office at (303) 979-5120, e-mail brett@ckrd.org  or stop by in person at 6191 W. Plymouth Drive.  Court reservation slips can be issued to individuals who have reserved a court.  Reservations are accepted year round. Click Here to view tennis court availability to see if a court has been reserved or not.  You do not have to reserve a court to play but keep in mind you could be bumped from the court if someone has reserved the court.  There is no charge to reserve any of the public courts listed below. .  A "Reservation Certificate" can be e-mailed to you.  With this certificate you have priority to be on the court at the reserved time.  If you have not reserved a court, you will run the risk of losing your court to someone who has made a reservation.  Please note that the reservation system will adhere to a priority basis for structured programs such as lessons, league practice, league play and clinics taking priority over recreational play. Without these structured programs, there would be no financial support to build and maintain courts for the public to use!

Private Courts (Locked – Requires annual key membership of $75.00 plus a $50.00 refundable key deposit = $125 total).  You do not have to be a resident of CKRD to be a key member.  The key is good for one full year from the date membership starts.
