Junior Team Tennis
For Players Ages 6 to 18
ABOUT JUNIOR TEAM TENNIS
USTA Junior Team Tennis (JTT) brings together boys and girls, ages 6 to 18, to play singles, doubles and mixed doubles against other coed teams. JTT is the largest youth tennis league in the country, helping girls and boys get on the court and have a good time. Teams are coed and made up of at least six players, three boys and three girls, based on similar ages and skill levels. The emphasis is on skill development, fun, teamwork and friendly competition, all with the possibility of advancing to the Midwest Championship!
Tennis is a sport you can play for life and JTT lays the foundation for a lasting relationship.
WHO CAN PLAY?
USTA Junior Team Tennis is for girls and boys ages 6 to 18 of all abilities and experience. Whether your child has been playing for years, or has never held a racquet, there's a spot on the team for them. Teams are formed in age groups: 18 & under, 14 & under, 12 & under, 10 & under, and 8 & under.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Seasons are typically 6 to 8 weeks long and include regularly scheduled practices and matches. Players have the opportunity to participate in both singles and doubles play throughout the season. The season culminates in a sectional championship.
HOW COMPETITIVE IS IT?
Whether your child wants to compete on a national level or simply wants to learn a new sport and make friends, Junior Team Tennis can take them there. The focus is on enjoying the exhilaration of playing and the development of skills that make playing fun. It's up to each player to decide how far they want to go.
A modified form of match play, such as the QuickStart format, is perfect for beginners! Grants are available to run USTA Junior Team Tennis. There is nothing like the team spirit when kids are playing USTA JTT!
