Junior Team Tennis

Teamwork makes the dream work.

About Junior Tennis Team (JTT)

Junior Team Tennis (JTT) is a national youth tennis league for players 9-18 that combines the fun of playing tennis with the character-building aspects of team sports. Each JTT program runs for 12 weeks. Teams consist of boys and girls. Each team participates in both practice and match play together, including singles, doubles, and mixed doubles. JTT is a mixture of a fun and competitive environment where kids learn that working together is a key to success.

About Junior Team Tennis for Kids (JTTK)

Junior Team Tennis for Kids (JTTK) was created for younger kids ages 6-12 to play in a team environment with other players of a similar level. The shorter 8-week seasons are designed to help younger players comfortably adapt to league play. JTTK also uses larger and softer tennis balls to accommodate kids who are just starting to play.
