Why Junior Team Tennis is Right For You


With Junior Team Tennis, you’ll learn about unity, sportsmanship and how to work together to achieve success. You’ll also learn that success isn’t just about winning; it’s about how you play the game and respond to challenges.


Local Junior Team Tennis or Championship Junior Team Tennis: Which is right for me?

Junior Tennis Team follows two tracks to provide opportunities to players of all abilities: Local Junior Team Tennis or Championship Junior Team Tennis. The local track allows kids and team organizers to play on local level with flexible structures, while the championship track provides teams the opportunity to advance to a national championship – the crown jewel of the USTA Junior Team Tennis season.

Being a Junior Team Tennis parent is a tremendous opportunity: You get a chance to see your kids learn and enjoy tennis, and you can take part by becoming an organizer or coach. It doesn't matter if you've never picked up a racquet – what's important is that you can make an impact that goes beyond the sidelines.


How tennis benefits your children

The benefits of tennis are many. Getting children into the sport at a young age helps them develop physically, mentally and socially. They learn lessons inside the lines of a tennis court that they can apply to life outside as well. Add to those benefits an environment in which they can share everything with friends and teammates and you’ve got the essence of USTA Junior Team Tennis
