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). All you need to start a league are two teams. Teams will be dived by the following age groups and play level:
Age Groups: 18U, 14U, 12U, 10U
Play Levels: Intermediate
The Macon (Ga.) Tennis Association has been selected as the host of the 2020 and 2021 USTA Southern Junior Team Tennis Section Championships. At least 55 teams with about 500 players from throughout the Southern section are expected to play each year.
The tournament will be played at the John Drew Smith Tennis Center, along with South Bibb Recreation Center and, if needed, Mercer University.
The dates of the championships are set for Aug.14-16, 2020 and Aug. 13-15, 2021.
Starting now, you can become a USTA Junior member at no cost. Juniors can now sign up to play in a USTA sanctioned tournament or league without first having to purchase a USTA membership. In addition, we are working on new benefits that juniors and their parents will soon have access to, designed to better help you navigate your tennis journey.
The Junior Team Tennis track is designed to introduce kids to team competition in a setting that focuses on play opportunities, developing skills, and FUN!
A Junior National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) rating is a measuring tool that indicates a standard of play that allows players to track their progress as they develop their games. An accurate rating should give a player access to level-based competition. Level-based competition is about grouping players according to ability, regardless of age or gender. For example, players might be grouped together in compatible rating intervals such as 2.4 to 2.7 or 3.1 to 3.3.
Background screening MUST be submitted no later than October 21st. You will be locked out of creating a JTT team until this is completed, submitted and approved!
