Junior Team Tennis & Match Play

Junior Team Tennis

It is easier than ever to open the door for your child to the lifetime sport of tennis. Junior Team Tennis (JTT) is designed for kids ages 6- 18.  It is tennis sized right for age and ability! JTT is the perfect opportunity to make tennis a team sport. It makes practice meaningful and is also a great introduction to tournament play. 


There are three levels of tennis balls for the younger kids: red, orange and green.

  • Courts are smaller and easier to cover.

  • Balls bounce lower and move slower, making them easier to hit.

  • New scoring rules that allow for shorter more and shorter matches.


Red ball: ages 4-6 years

Orange ball: ages 6-9 years

Green ball:  ages 8-10 years

Tips for Parents​

  • Parents your children are watching.

  • Tennis is just a game.

  • Players are here to compete, but also learn life lessons through sport.

  • It is your job to teach them.

  • You only help by setting an example & showing respect at all times.
