USTA Team Challenge

USTA Team Challenge is an introduction to tennis competition offering a low-pressure team environment for children of all ages to develop their skills through level-based play, without an emphasis on instruction or results. This turnkey program offers many benefits for new youth tennis players as well as great resources for providers! This new Net Generation experience is for red, orange, and green ball. 


We are positioning the USTA Team Challenge before players move on to Junior Team Tennis or individual tournaments. Participants are expected to at least drop hit serve from the services line over the net and sustain a modified rally which can be rolling, trapping, bumping, or hitting. This program must be delivered by Net Generation Safe Play approved providers.  


USTA Team Challenge is designed to be delivered as a single event or a series of up to six events, with the objective of providing a fun and social environment that highlights character and skill development, and it is a fantastic way to introduce a lifelong love of the game from the very first play opportunity! 


By supporting USTA Team Challenge, you are aligning your goals of shaping the future of the kids you teach every day with the goals of Net Generation and the USTA. Net Generation is a comprehensive development program for kids ages 5 through 18 that will help us grow tennis participation, instill the love of the game in future generations, and ensure that tennis remains a vibrant sport in our communities for years to come!

“In Richmond, VA, we’ve introduced a weekly ‘match play’ tennis program for beginners. Just show up and play a fun but competitive match with players of similar skill levels. No assigned partners; players just switch around and keep count of the number of games won each session. At the end of the fourth session, a king and queen of the court will be awarded a special prize package and a players’ party with adult beverages for everyone. Fun with new friends and food. What better way to spend an evening?!”
“The social play events we host at our Azusa Tennis Program is a great way to create an entry point for new and returning tennis players invited by their friends. With a focus on a fun, positive experience, we are seeing a lot of returning players who want more.”
“Adult social programs are not only helping grow our sport by connecting with new players, but it has helped me connect as a provider with people I wouldn’t have otherwise. Being able to see firsthand the new friendships made via social play interaction lets me know that the future of our sport is very bright with these programs leading the way.”
