2014 JTT Information



USTA Jr. Team Tennis is the largest junior recreational tennis league in the country. This is the “Little League” for tennis. As the players grow into their skills, the format is adapted to best meet their needs whether using the QuickStart format or playing traditional tennis. JTT is a combination of practice and match play with an emphasis on skill development, fun, teamwork and friendly competition. The local season consists of competing against other teams of similar age and ability level. Teams can choose to participate in a Championship series and try to advance all the way to a national championship. The 2010 Life Time Fitness – Fridley 14 and Under team became the sixth USTA Northern squad to win a JTT National Championship!
There are five levels of JTT ranging in age from 8-18. Within these levels are novice, intermediate and advanced divisions. The teams are coed and consist of at least six players – three boys and three girls – based on similar ages and skill levels. Matches include boys singles, girls singles, boys doubles, girls doubles and mixed doubles and all team matches are determined by a total-games-won format.
Last year, almost 2,700 kids participated in USTA Northern JTT and that number continues to rise as more emphasis is placed on growing leagues for elementary and middle school players!
