|Junior Team Tennis|
USTA Jr. Team Tennis brings kids together in teams to play singles, doubles and mixed doubles against other teams. It promotes social skills and important values by fostering a spirit of cooperation and unity, as well as individual self-growth. Also, it’s a fun environment for kids in which they learn that succeeding is really more about how they play the game – win or lose.
How does it work?
USTA Jr. Team Tennis is designed for kids ages 5-18 and divided in to these age groups: 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U and 18U.
Skill levels: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced.
Teams are comprised of 6-10 players. For advancing divisions, a minimum of 3 boys & 3 girls is required. Non-advancing divisions are not gender specific.
Many teams are organized by a tennis teaching pro affiliated with a club or tennis program. Teams may be organized by parents as well!
Spring season starts February 9, 2014 and runs through May 4, 2014. Exact dates and number of matches depends upon number of teams in the division and court availability.
