Team Challenges Create Fun Way to Learn the Game

Andrea Gallagher | March 26, 2021


If your child is just starting out with tennis, or just getting into competition play, consider putting them in a Team Challenge near you. Team Challenge is a low-pressure competition for kids of all ages who want to take the next step, without worrying about wins and losses. It’s also a fun way to meet other kids, and parents can watch too! It is the first step in the Net Generation Junior Pathway. 



Most Team Challenges are a single event, or a series of events with one being the Team Challenge. For more on what’s coming up in Iowa, click here.



USTA Team Challenges are positioned before players move on to Junior Team Tennis, Junior Circuit Events, or individual Junior Tournaments. Participants are expected to at least drop hit serve from the service line over the net or be able to sustain a  modified rally which can be rolling, trapping, bumping, or hitting to take part in a team challenge.
