USTA Iowa Junior Team Tennis (JTT) recently had its first tournament of the summer. The west side of Iowa had USTA Iowa Junior Team Tennis District Playoffs on Friday, June 25 in Des Moines.




The Des Moines Golf and Country Club team pulled off the victory for the 14U Team over teams from LifeTime and Wakonda. 




Hopefully, the third time will be the charm for the Junior Team Tennis district match on the east side of Iowa. It was postponed due to weather and rescheduled to July 11, but had to be pushed back again to July 17 in Bettendorf.  Winners advance to the USTA Missouri Valley Junior Team Tennis Section Championships in Tulsa, Oklahoma scheduled for July 20-22.




In Junior Team Tennis, players compete in a team vs. team meet consisting of five individual matches:  boys singles, girls singles,  boys doubles, girls doubles and mixed doubles.  Each individual match will play best two-out-of-three short sets (four-game sets).
