107.7 The Truth

Let's get ready for Fall School Junior Team Tennis!

 

Fall School Junior Team Tennis League

This is an after school tennis league for beginners, intermediate, and advanced elementary and middle school students ages 8-14 or grades 2nd - 8th.   This is a non-age eligible league which does not advance to the state championships.  Players must be in the correct age and ability level through November 15th.   Matches are on Mondays/Wednesdays and possibly Fridays from 4:00 - 6:00 beginning on September 25 and tentatively ending on November 15. (Elementary may begin earlier!)

• We have combined elementary and middle school into one league and will be calling it: USTA Junior Team Tennis School League.  We did this to start the season later, giving schools MORE time to organize and to give both leagues more matches!  
• There is now a NEW Junior Rating System.  Click here to learn more about the rating system and how to self-rate. 

There may be six levels of play: 

  • 10U Beginner/Intermediate- You must be 10 years or younger.  Matches will be played on modified sized courts (60') using Orange/Yellow low compression balls.  10U Beginner teams are non-gendered and need at least 6 players.
