Junior Team Tennis Section Qualifiers Kick Off in June–Here’s What You Need to Know

Sydney Hamilton | May 26, 2022

JTT Section Qualifiers are rapidly approaching! Now’s a great time to register your child to play for a shot at the USTA Missouri Valley Section Championships taking place July 19-21 at Edmond Center Court in Edmond, OK.


The path to the JTT Section Championships looks a little different this year, so here’s what you need to know before registering. Teams must now compete in and qualify by playing in at least one Section Qualifier in order to advance to the Section Championships. Starting this year, however, teams can play in any of the Section Qualifiers taking place throughout USTA Missouri Valley–not just in their home section.


The USTA Heart of America Section Qualifiers for 14U Intermediate, 14U Advanced, 18U Intermediate, and 18U Advanced will take place July 6-7 at the Plaza Tennis Center in Kansas City. For a full list of upcoming USTA Missouri Valley Section Qualifiers taking place this summer–the first of which kicks off this month–please click here and follow the links to register.


To be eligible for the JTT Section Championships, teams must compete in at least one match in a Section Qualifier; the top two in each division will then advance. Teams who go on to take first place in their division at the Section Championships will then qualify for the JTT National Championships.


This year, the USTA Missouri Valley JTT Section Championships will be held July 19-20 (for 18U) and July 20-21 (for 14U) at Edmond Center Court in Edmond, OK. The USTA JTT National Championships will be hosted September 29-October 2 (for 14U and 18U Advanced teams) and October 6-9 (for 14U and 18U Intermediate teams) at the USTA National Campus in Orlando.


For more information on JTT and how to sign your junior player up for the upcoming Section Qualifiers, please reach out to USTA Missouri Valley JTT Coordinator Tara Williams by emailing williams@movalley.usta.com or calling (913) 302-5901.
