WHAT IS USTA JUNIOR TEAM TENNIS?
USTA Junior Team Tennis brings kids together in teams to play singles, doubles and mixed doubles against other teams. It promotes social skills and important values by fostering a spirit of cooperation and unity, as well as individual self-growth. Also, it’s a fun environment for kids in which they learn that succeeding is really more about how they play the game – win or lose.
How does it work?
USTA Junior Team Tennis is designed for kids ages 5-18. They are immediately placed on teams. All you need to start a league are two teams. Matches can be held anywhere from a local park or school to a commercial or private club. Teams are preferably co-ed but can also be single gender (boys only or girls only). They are divided by the following age and play levels:
Age Groups: 18U, 14U, 12U, 10U and 8U
Play Levels: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
