Tennis Programming

Gonzo Tennis LogoGonzo Tennis was founded in 2004 by Gonzalo “Gonzo” Garcia with the idea of bringing quality programs to the tennis community in Colorado. Since then Gonzo Tennis has shared the courts with players from ages 3 to 75 through programs for kids and adults.

Gonzo Tennis is dedicated to the growth and development of racquet sports with activities that incorporate people into the game in a safe and healthy environment.

We have a devotion to fostering the development of players of all ages, and giving them the opportunity to discover even more about this truly international sport. We are excited to partner with the Town of Erie to grow the tennis and pickleball programs.
