USTA Northern Junior Team Tennis


USTA Northern Junior Team Tennis helps girls and boys ages 11 to 18 get in the game, get on the court and have a good time. Players 10 & under are welcome to play JTT and should be green or yellow ball eligible in accordance with USTA's Play Tracker system.


10U players and their parents can access their PlayTracker points within their account profile, underneath the Family tab. Here, you will see a player's current competition ball color, coach assigned skill level (if applicable) and total points at each competitive level. Players will collect points on an engaging PlayTracker after playing in USTA Team Challenges, USTA Junior Team Tennis, and USTA Junior Circuits.


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. ADVERTISEMENT 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 2023, there is a team, 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!).
