UPDATE: 2021 USTA Northern Junior Team Tennis Sectional Championships 

 

As we continue to navigate play during a pandemic, we are encouraged that tennis is such a safe sport for our youth! Junior Team Tennis will continue to be provided per local guidelines in 2021. We will continue to monitor play in our local areas, as well as our events in 2021, to provide the safest opportunities for your players! 

 

Unfortunately, The USTA Junior Team Tennis National Championships will NOT be taking place in 2021. With that being said, all teams meeting league play requirements will be invited to the USTA Northern JTT Section Championships.. 


The USTA Northern Section Championships, July 23rd - July 28th, will be the final step in the championship journey for our Junior Team Tennis players in 2021.

USTA Northern Junior Team Tennis

 

USTA Northern Junior Team Tennis helps girls and boys ages 6 to 18 get in the game, get on the court and have a good time. The emphasis is on skill development, fun, teamwork and friendly competition. There are a number of team tennis options available in USTA Northern for junior players of all ages and ability levels.

Junior Team Tennis is the largest team tennis program in the United States. It is a "traditional" team tennis format where a minimum of three boys and three girls form a team and compete against other JTT teams in the section. Leagues are available in the following categories: 12U Green Ball, 14U Intermediate, 14U Advanced, 18U Intermediate, and 18U Advanced. 

 

Match formats consist of one set of boys singles, girls singles, boys doubles, girls doubles, and mixed doubles and the match is determined by total-games won. For 2021, there is a two match minimum requirement in local season matches in order for teams to participate in the Section Championship. 


Players must be a USTA Member to participate in Junior Team Tennis (Junior membership is now FREE!).
