Two NC teams take Southern JTT titles

North Carolina came away with two titles at the 2015 USTA Southern
Junior Team Tennis Section Championships in Lexington County, S.C. Charlotte's 12 & Under Intermediate team, coached by John Trimp, and Lenny Simpson's 10 & Under Advanced team from Wilmington brought home championships at the end of the tournament on Aug. 23.

North Carolina tied Tennessee with two championships at this year's tournament, while Georgia finished on top with three winning teams. This year’s event drew 59 teams from across the Southern section.


NC Summer State Closed winners

The junior tennis scene was focused on the Cary Tennis Park from Aug. 5-9 for the NC Junior Summer State Closed. Nearly 500 players from across North Carolina traveled to compete in one of USTA North Carolina's biggest annual junior tournaments.

One of three Level 1 junior tournaments each year, the NC Junior Summer State Closed is among the top titles a junior player can win at the state level. Participation in these events continues to thrive, boasting some of the South's best competitors facing off against each other.


16 NC juniors take part in TEAM USA camp

North Carolina juniors are held in high regard in the tennis community. Lately we’ve seen several juniors from the state step up on bigger stages, like Patrick Kypson winning the National Boys 16s in Kalamazoo or Tommy Paul capturing the Junior French Open Championships. You can rest assured there’s more talent on the rise still, as we saw over a dozen North Carolina players participate in the 2015 TEAM USA Sectional Training Camp from Aug. 15-16.


Great Sports Pins

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:


2015 Junior Team Tennis State Championships

A record-breaking number of juniors took the courts in Lake Norman from July 17-19, marking the largest USTA North Carolina Junior Team Tennis (JTT) State Championships in history. Over 600 players and a total of 92 teams were in action at this year's tournament, shattering previous participation highs.

This was the first year Lake Norman hosted the JTT State Championships. River Run Country Club served as the man site for the 2015 event, and the Lake Norman Tennis Association did an incredible job with volunteering and supporting the event.
