Junior Team Tennis

What is Junior Team Tennis?

Junior Team Tennis is a team-based league consisting of weekly competitive matches between two junior teams. This program is designed to provide youngsters with a team match format consisting of singles, doubles and mixed play for boys and girls of all skill levels. Local league play can qualify players for the USTA Georgia Junior Team Tennis State Championships, with further advancement to the USTA Southern Sectional Championships.

 

PRC's tennis instructor, Tommy Arnette, competed heavily in JTT in the Midwest section during his junior career and recalls having an incredibly fun experience that also provided significant growth through competitive match-play.

 

When does JTT begin?

The local JTT track season runs from May 15 - June 26. Makeup matches must be completed by June 30. All matches will take place on Sundays at 2PM.

 

Players may participate in the following age divisions:

  • 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U, 18U
  • Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced levels for each division

 

Is there a cost?

There will be a league fee of $20 per player per team. This amount is similar to adult USTA league fees in the area and is roughly the same cost as a Level 7 USTA Tournament (JTT is cheaper than the vast majority of USTA events). USTA memberships continue to be free for junior players

 

How does a JTT league fit in with the PRC Play and Performance programs?

The local JTT track best aligns with junior players in the Play and Play Plus programs. These players will be challenged in their local JTT leagues and see growth in their tennis skills as they accumulate more match experience.

 

Performance and tournament players with aspirations of competing at the college level are recommended to choose the National Championship JTT track.

 

Parent involvement:

Parents are welcomed and encouraged to volunteer to Coach/Captain a player's team. To be eligible, parents must complete a background screening by the USTA to be SafePlay certified (no cost for this screening). Captains must also be USTA members (non-player memberships are free).
