USTA Jr. Team Tennis Coming for the Spring!
Sign ups for Jr Team Tennis are beginning now for the league that will start the weekend of February 24th. For players 8 to 18 years of age, JTT provides a great opportunity to play tennis on a team of similar age and level players. Age levels offered are 8 and under, 10 and under, 12 and under, 14 and under and 18 and under. Players may not be older than the listed age before August 31st, 2013. (For example, if a player becomes 13 on July 1st, he or she must play the 14 and under league.) Ability levels of beginner, intermediate and advanced will be offered in each age division. All qualified players (championship or superchampionship) must play in the advanced divisions. Winning teams from 12 to 18 years of age can advance to regional and sectional championships.
Weekly matches are played on Sundays, usually at HEB Tennis Center or Al Kruse Tennis Center. Each team match consists of 5 matches; boys singles, boys doubles, girls singles, girls doubles and mixed doubles. The team winning the most number of games wins the match. The whole team match usually lasts 1 and 1/2 to 2 hours.
Cost of the league is $35 and each player must be a USTA member.
The CCTA will be hosting a sign up night for all players at HEB Tennis Center from 6 to 8:30 pm on Tuesday, February 5th. Come on out and we will help get everyone signed up. If you aren’t already on a team, we will find you a team!
