Players ages 10-18  are introduced to competitive team tennis.  Teams are grouped based on age and NTRP ability levels 1.5 - 4.0.  Flights are 10U, 12U, 14U and 18U and levels are beginner (1.0-2.0), intermediate (2.1-3.4) and advanced (3.5 and up).  The program focuses on fun, fitness and the social benefits of tennis. Awards are given for first and second place teams in each division. There will be an awards ceremony and party at the end of the season.  

This program offers team practices and match play.  Team tennis matches will be played Sundays 2:30-4:00 and/or 4:00-5:30 and/or Fridays 4:30-6:00. Other days may be added, depending on number of teams in each level.  Matches will be played at Cooper Creek Tennis Center, facilities which have USTA Junior Team Tennis teams, and other sites.

Important Changes for 2017 Spring season:

Ratings:

The JNTRP ratings will be used for the Intermediate and Advanced players.  Players that have 4 matches in JTT or tournaments will have generated a rating. Players with a generated rating above 2.0 must play intermediate. Beginner level will not be required to self rate at registration due to inconsistencies in the rating process. We will use the previous guidelines for beginner levels: 1) NTRP rating; 2) Georgia Standing List as of July 2016; 3) Player Experience Scorecard and 4) Previous player records. 
(Players with more that 150 points in any age group on the posted Georgia standing list as of the end of July 2016 may not play Beginner).
