Junior Team Tennis

Sponsored by Newks! 

Junior Team Tennis (JTT) is a program that provides organized match play in a team setting. Through singles, doubles and mixed doubles formats, team competition helps kids develop a sense of individual contribution within a group. 


JTT promotes social skills and important values by fostering a spirit of cooperation and unity, as well as self-growth. Whether they win or lose, kids learn that succeeding is really more about how they play the game.

Frequently Asked Questions

Junior Team Tennis is a team match play product for players ages 6-18 who are comfortable with match play formatting and looking for additional practice in a fun team environment. JTT brings together players on a team to play lines of singles, doubles and mixed doubles against other teams of similar ages and ability level.

With Junior Team Tennis, you’ll learn about unity, sportsmanship and how to work together to achieve success. You’ll also learn that success isn’t just about winning; it’s about how you play the game and respond to challenges. JTT is a fun alternative way to increase match play experience with the support of your team to cheer you on. 

While USTA Junior Team Tennis provides an environment for players to become more confident with match play, all participants are expected to be able to serve, rally, and score without assistance.


If a player isn't ready, the USTA Team Challenge is an excellent opportunity for them to develop their match play experience! These programs are regularly hosted at local tennis centers, schools, and other community organizations.


Reach out to your player's coach/teacher to see if they are running Team Challenges near you! For more information about these team products, please contact Mark Hodge

In fact, your parents can get involved today, whether they’re pros or if they’ve never picked up a racquet. They can even start a team if there isn’t one nearby. Learn more about being a Team Captain.


Note: Make sure to stay in touch with your team captain and area league coordinator throughout the season. They will notify you of your player's match schedule, special events and the next season league information.
