If your kids love tennis, they’ll love it even more as part of a team.
Kids like playing with their friends and being part of a group, which is why playing USTA Jr. Team Tennis is such a great way to get—and keep—kids in the game. Fun events such as Play Days and Kids’ Tennis Clubs often incorporate team formats to help introduce kids to the game, and Jr. Team Tennis lets kids continue to play with the friends they’ve made along the way.
Play in USTA Jr. Team Tennis involves singles, doubles and mixed doubles. Best of all, USTA Jr. Team Tennis is for children of all ages.
LEVEL OF PLAY: This is a league based on competitive play. Your team may or may not offer team practices. It is important that our child understand scoring. Also, competitors at all age divisions should be able to serve and keep a rally. If you are interested in this league, but your child is a true beginner, then I would recommmend scheduling a few private lssons before attempting to play matches.
FORMAT OF PLAY: The 10 & under division will play a four game short set for singles and a regular six game short set for doubles. Singles matches for the 14 & 18 Under divisions will be regular sets best of three. If players split sets, the third set will be played as a 10 point tiebreak. All doubles matches for the 14 & Under and 18 & Under divisions will be eight game pro sets. The number of matches played each will depend on the number of registrants, but the goal is to have two singles matches and two doubles matches.
TEAM MANAGEMENT: Most teams will be coached and managed by parents. Please email Zach Eccher if you would be interested in being a parent captain. Weekly practice with a tennis teaching professional is highly encouraged. If you have any questions about the league or registration, please feel free to contact me.
