“Parents and kids don’t need complete teams to sign-up,” says USTA Florida Junior Team Tennis Coordinator Liz Coates. “Parents can also sign-up individual players that can be put on existing teams.”
Junior Team Tennis covers all skill levels — beginner, intermediate and advanced — with divisions from 8-and-under up to 18-and-under.
For beginner players age 10-and-under, “Red Ball” leagues offer right-sized equipment for kids to hone their skills on 36-foot courts with an emphasis on fun rather than competition.
USTA Junior Team Tennis brings kids together in teams to play singles, doubles and mixed doubles against other beginner, intermediate or advanced teams, promoting social skills and important values, fostering cooperation and team play, as well as individual self-growth. JTT provides a fun environment for kids in which they learn that succeeding is really more about how they play the game — win or lose. Approximately 100,000 youth from coast to coast play Junior Team Tennis annually.
Established in 1991, USTA Junior Team Tennis provides youth ages 6-18 with all of the health and social benefits of tennis in a coed, fun and competitive team environment — all while allowing participants to compete with and against individuals of similar ages and skill levels.
