Junior Competition

When you’re ready to play in ranked competitive tennis, USTA Junior Tournaments are a great way to get out on the court and test your game. You’ll have every opportunity to learn from the best, play against the best – and even make new friends along the way. By participating in USTA Junior Tournaments, you’ll have a better chance to take your game as far as you want – high school, college or even the pros.


USTA NorCal offers a variety of opportunities for junior players of all abilities and we have many Junior Tournaments on the calendar for you to join the competition! Ready to get started?

Each year the USTA publishes Friend at Court, a book that includes not only the USTA Regulations but also the ITF Rules of Tennis and "The Code," the players’ guide for matches when officials are not present. It is highly recommended that each player or tennis family have a copy of this publication as a reference. You can purchase the easy-to-carry Friend of Court by calling toll-free, 1-866-898-8061.


USTA Regulations prohibit a player from entering two tournaments that have dates that overlap by one or more days unless a player has the prior written consent of both Tournament Committees.

The USTA believes strongly in the importance of good sportsmanship in making tennis more enjoyable for all. Players, parents, and coaches alike all share responsibility in ensuring that good sportsmanship is an integral part of competition regardless of the level of play.


Players will be held accountable based on the conduct they and their spectators display before, during and/or after a match in any USTA-sanctioned tournament.  Additionally, a person who enters a sanctioned tournament or match consents to be penalized under the Point Penalty System for abusive conduct by a person who appears to be associated with the player.  Information regarding the suspension point system, which includes a chart of violations and the suspension points associated with each violation can be found in the Friend at Court on pages 113 - 118.


Parents: Set an example for your kids by creating a positive and encouraging environment.

Players: Handle victory and defeat with grace and dignity and treat opponents with fairness and courtesy.

Coaches: Stress the importance of Sportsmanship as highly as the development of strokes and strategy.

On January 1, 2021, USTA Youth Progression transitioned to within your profile, and with that comes an exciting new look. Click here to learn more.
