This event marks the end of the 2022 JTT season, but the future is as bright as ever. The JTT program has grown to 18 different counties in Florida and well over 300 players.


Spicer is proud to be leading this program as it gives numerous children an opportunity to get involved in the team aspect of tennis and enjoy the sport with friends.
