JUNIOR TEAM TENNIS
TENNIS IS A TEAM SPORT
Why wait until high school to join a tennis team? Or maybe you want to join another team! USTA Junior Team Tennis, or “JTT”, brings together boys and girls, ages 5 to 18, to play singles, doubles and mixed doubles against other coed teams.
Beyond being fun and a great form of exercise, USTA Junior Team Tennis is a competitive, level-based environment that promotes individual growth, social development and life skills.
When Should I Start Playing in USTA Junior Team Tennis?
USTA Junior Team Tennis teams offer several options. Players who start on a JTT team are expected to be able to serve, maintain a rally and know how to keep score.
On a tennis team, you’ll learn about unity, sportsmanship and how to work together to achieve success. You’ll also learn that success isn’t just about winning; it’s about how you play the game and respond to challenges.
