Great Sports Pins
In an effort to promote good behavior and sportsmanship in junior tennis, we are starting our “Great Sports” program at select junior tournaments across the state. Officials will now be able to award good behavior by presenting sportsmanship pins to juniors who exemplify exceptional sportsmanship during a match or tournament.
Examples of pin awards that occurred this past year at trial events:
Junior Team Tennis
2016 Junior Team Tennis State Championships
The North Carolina Tennis Association and the North Carolina Tennis Foundation support high school tennis in North Carolina. The NCTF proudly contributes to the NC High School Athletic Association to help with the costs associated with high school tennis. And, the NCTA staff participate in the NC High School Coaches Workshop each July. Also, a player may count his/her high school season towards their North Carolina Final Year-End Ranking.

High School and Jr. Team Tennis Players, Coaches, and Captains:
The North Carolina Tennis Association is again providing tournament vouchers for current High School and Jr. Team Tennis players in North Carolina. The NCTA Junior Competition Committee and Board of Directors want to provide an incentive for those players in North Carolina to get involved in USTA tournament competition.
The points per round (PPR) ranking system will again be used with the intent to encourage participation and to award the play and accomplishments of North Carolina players.
