USTA Heart of America junior tennis is ready for a big summer, with several USTA Junior Circuit events upcoming. Two big events are the June Jam hosted by Lob & Learn at Elite Tennis June 5 and another event June 25 at Overland Park Racquet Club.




USTA Junior Circuit events operate under a new program that utilizes a non-elimination round-robin draw format for players of all ages to gain match play experience in a tournament setting with a focus on individual results.  The events are designed to take place in no more than a half-day, with the objective of providing a competitive environment, while guaranteeing individual match play.




The June Jam will be a part of a busy summer for Lob & Learn. Along with this event, they will be hosting day camps and other tournaments throughout the summer. The June Jam will include boys’ and girls’ 10-and-under green and orange ball draws and a 12-and-under green ball draw, Registration for the June Jam closes May 31.




For the June 25 event, there will be boys’ and girls’ 10-and-under green and orange ball draws, a 12-and-under green ball draw, and 14s 16s and 18s  yellow ball draws. Registration for this event closes June 21.
