Colorado SERVES

Success, Education, Respect, Values, Excellence & Self Confidence

The Colorado SERVES Program is a partnership between the United States Tennis Association of Colorado (USTA Colorado) and Denver Tennis Park designed to bring affordable tennis programming to kids of all abilities and backgrounds. The SERVES program combines strong youth development practices with dedicated tennis training delivered by some of the best instructors in our state. Frank Adams and George Tavarez, our lead instructors, have more than 50 years of combined youth instruction experience. Frank is also an inductee to the Black Tennis Hall of Fame and was one of the initial founders of the Star Search program, a precursor to SERVES.

The SERVES program is offered both at the DTP (winter months) and as camps in the Denver community (summer months), including in Southwest Denver at Lincoln High School and in Northeast Denver at Northfield High School. To learn more please contact Sonia Schwartz, Outreach Coordinator, at sschwartz@denvertennispark.org.

Support SERVES

Our community work is made possible by donations and grants from various organizations and individual donors. You can support Colorado SERVES and other DTP community programming with a charitable gift.

Advantage Kids, our program within Denver Public Schools (DPS) schools, is designed to introduce and sustain tennis programming in under-invested DPS elementary, middle, and high schools where there is little to no tennis in the schools. 

The long-term goal isn’t only to build a deep youth development structure through tennis in under invested communities, but to establish a culture of tennis and a pipeline of tennis players from elementary to high school within those communities .

If you are a faculty member or parent of a DPS school and have interest in the DTP bringing Advantage Youth to your school, please reach out to Sonia Schwartz, Community Outreach Coordinator, at sschwartz@denvertennispark.org.
