USTA Junior Circuit
A USTA Junior Circuit is a new program that utilizes a non-elimination round robin draw format for players of all ages to gain match play experience in a tournament setting with a focus on individual results. This experience will encourage players of all ages to develop their skills through level-based play and demonstrate good sportsmanship.
It is designed to be delivered as a single event, up to a half-day, with the objective of providing a competitive environment guaranteeing individual match play. A USTA Junior Circuit can be played with orange, green, or yellow tennis balls. Player ratings can be used in green and yellow ball to help group players into flights and facilitate level-based play. An eye test can be used during the group warm-up to flight players in the orange ball division.ADVERTISEMENT
A USTA Junior Circuit event can be delivered by registered Net Generation providers as a fantastic way to help foster a lifelong love of the game by supporting appropriate play opportunities! As we continue to develop the USTA Junior Circuit program, additional draw types and formats of play may be included to ensure a fun and developmentally appropriate environment.
