NORCAL JUNIOR TEAM TENNIS
Welcome to USTA Junior Team Tennis
We offer two different opportunities to get involved in Junior Team Tennis (JTT) in Northern California.
- JTT Local Leagues is a fun recreational match play opportunity to compete against other similar level-based teams within a local region that is open to all skill levels for youth players 7-18 years old.
- Championship JTT is a co-ed team-based tournament geared toward competitive play for those who have high school and tournament experience.
You may choose to participate in one track or both – it’s up to you! What’s most important to us is that you have fun and use these match play opportunities to enjoy your growth and development as a player while connecting and supporting each other as a team.
JTT Local Leagues is designed to offer a fun recreational experience for our young players providing them with the chance to participate in live match play in a safe and supportive team environment. Teams are generally comprised of 6-8 players and compete against other similar level-based teams within a local region.ADVERTISEMENT
We offer 3 seasons: Spring, Summer, and Fall. Each season lasts approximately 7-8 weeks. Teams compete on a weekly basis - sometimes playing at their home facility or traveling to a nearby facility to play their matches.
Spring Registration is Now Open!

Championship JTT is a co-ed team-based tournament geared toward competitive play for those who have high school and tournament experience. Championship JTT offers a pathway for teams to qualify and advance to the Gar Glenney State Cup and USTA's JTT National Championships.
A co-ed team is composed of a minimum of six players (3 boys and 3 girls min.) with a format of 5 individual matches per team match.
2 singles matches (1 boys and 1 girls)
2 doubles matches (1 boys and 1 girls)
1 mixed doubles match
Intermediate teams (Junior NTRP rating of 3.4 and below): Players signing up for an intermediate team will have some tournament/competition experience and most likely play Level 5-7 USTA tournaments or high school tennis for the 18U division.
Advanced teams (Junior NTRP rating of 3.5 and above): Advanced teams are composed of players with significant tournament/competition experience. Players who participate at this level will typically have Level 1-4 USTA tournament experience or top high school players looking for a team competition outside of their season.
Junior NTRP ratings can be viewed here. At JTT Sectionals, Level 6 ranking points will be awarded to Intermediate teams and Level 5 points for Advanced teams. If the JTT Nationals happens in late 2022, ranking points will also be awarded for that event as well.
Complete rules and regulations can be found here.
Please note: To play in a tournament that counts for junior ranking, players must either be 11 years of age or shall have completed the requirements of the Net Generation PlayTracker. The USTA Net Generation Pathway Regulations set forth the requirements that must be met in the Net Generation PlayTracker: Updated Net Generation PlayTracker Overview

The 2022 Championship JTT season will begin in January. If you are a parent/coach or player looking to sign up, please fill out our Google Forms below:
Teams are welcome to sign up for either qualifier. Due to court availability, we may have to cap teams at both qualifiers and do a top-down selection based on average team rating.
Championship JTT Track
To compete in the National Championships, players must first play one qualifier team tournament in January or February. The top two teams in each division that advance from the qualifiers move on to Sectionals in June. The top two teams from Sectionals compete in Gar Glenney Cup (our State Cup vs. Southern California) in July. Both teams will also qualify to compete in the National Championships. Click here to see a flowchart of the track.
The Gar Glenney Cup is an annual competition between the top Junior Team Tennis teams from the USTA NorCal and USTA SoCal sections. Gar Glenney will take place tentatively in July 2022.
To view past results and the overall NorCal vs. SoCal record, click here.
The JTT National Championships is an annual competition of the top co-ed teams from around the nation. Teams qualify for this event by winning the 14U or 18U co-ed divisions at the JTT Sectionals. USTA NorCal can qualify a total of four teams (two from the Intermediate Division and two from the Advanced Division).
A final decision regarding the status of the 2022 JTT National Championships has not been announced yet.
