Junior Team Tennis

JTT_Logo_4c  WHAT IS JUNIOR TEAM TENNIS?


USTA Jr. Team Tennis is a national youth tennis league for kids 6-18 that combines the challenge and fun of playing tennis with the educatioal and character-building aspects of team sports.

It is a 8 to 12 week program of team practice and match play for boys and girls to get together to play singles, doubles, and mixed doubles against other teams. It promotes values you would expect from any sport by fostering a spirit of cooperation, unity and individual self-worth. Also, it’s a fun environment for kids where they learn that succeeding is really more about how you play the game – win or lose.

The idea of team tennis is not a new concept.  High schools, colleges, and even the Davis Cup or Fed Cup matches are team play.  What is new about Jr Team Tennis is the addition of the new QuickStart format, a set of game and equipment modifications that make it easy and fun for kids as young as 6 to learn the game by playing, not drilling.

The minute kids pick up a racquet, they're learning the fundamentals of the game - serving, rally and scoring - by doing.  And most important, Jr Team Tennis is incredibly fun, so they'll keep wanting to come back to play and learn more.
