What is USTA Junior Team Tennis?

USTA Junior Team Tennis is the largest youth tennis program in the country. It 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. 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.

JTT emphasizes fun, fitness and friends. The focus in this kind of play is enjoying the exhilaration of exercise and refining the skills that make tennis fun for players of all ages and levels of competition.

Who Can Play?

Nearly 100,000 kids from coast to coast are enjoying Junior Team Tennis annually. USTA Junior Team Tennis is for girls & boys, ages 5 to 18.  Whether your child has been playing tennis for years or has never held a racquet, there's a spot on the team for them.

         How Does it Work?

In Arkansas, most areas offer two seasons, one in the spring and one in the fall. Most local league seasons will consist of 6 to 8 weeks of practices and matches. Teams compete against other teams from the same geographic region in their respective age/level division. Matches can be played anywhere from a local park or school to a commercial or private club. Players have the opportunity to participate in both singles and doubles play throughout the season. The spring season concludes in State, Section, and National Championship events.
