Fall Junior Team Tennis

FALL JUNIOR TEAM TENNIS –  ages 5-18

As summer begins to wind down, it is time to begin planning for fall tennis ! Our fall youth tennis season is fast approaching…. Junior Tennis Teams will begin forming on August 1st.  Please contact your Tennis Professional to determine the correct ability level for your child.  (Rosters are due on September 13th)

Tennis should always be FUN! Because USTA’s Junior Team Tennis (JTT) offers so many different levels of team tennis, you can select a Division that will challenge your child, while allowing them to succeed. Beginning at the age of 5 and continuing until 18, JTT offers Beginner through Advanced level teams.  Teams play using age appropriate balls at the “Red Ball”, “Orange Ball”, “Advanced Green Dot” and “adult” ball level.  

By matching a child’s age with the right size court, match format and ball; JTT makes tennis fun for kids as young as 5! 

In 8U JTT, kids are given the opportunity to learn how to rally and move on the court though the use of a slower bouncing Red Ball, smaller court size and small racquet. (The 8U serve is a self feeding forehand.) Kids from the age of 5, learn to love the game of tennis! 

As the kids get more tennis experience, JTT offer doubles competition and even a Green Dot league for 10U Advanced “tournament” players.  Beginning at the age of 11, JTT offers youth players a “mixed gender” format.  With each match, players get experience with gender specific singles & doubles and also mixed doubles (co-ed).  Speak to your tennis professional today about placing your child on a Fall tennis team! 

HAPPY FALL TENNIS IS COMING!
