About Junior Team Tennis
Junior Team Tennis is a great way for children to learn the game of tennis in a fun, team filled environment. Much like little league baseball or soccer players form teams that compete against each other. Teams are divided based on age and skill levels so players that are new to the game do not have to worry about playing against advanced players. Players that are new to the game are encouraged to join in and learn to play. Junior Team Tennis is recreational and not intended to be a competitive type of play.
For the Spring 2018 season we are naming our teams using Mad Libs! That’s right, you pick an adjective and a noun to provide your team’s name. If you need help finding different adjectives and nouns, click here for a sample list.
Volunteers (We Need YOU!)
Junior Team Tennis is run by its volunteers. For the upcoming Spring 2016 Junior Team Tennis season we will need a number of volunteers for various aspects of the Junior Team Tennis leagues. The positions we need filled will be for:
- Team Captains
- Division Coordinators
- Court Monitors (8 & under and 10 & under beginner divisions)
To be a volunteer all you need is a desire to help. Previous tennis knowledge is not required but it does help. Training will be available for anyone who needs it.
If you would like to volunteer and help please visit our volunteer page here.
Community service hours are available for those that are looking to fulfill that requirement.
About the new ratings system
Last year we started using a rating system to place players into the respective skill and age categories. This year the Texas Section has moved forward yet again and dropped the skill level names and started using the ratings system as the way to determine where players will play. To learn more about the ratings system, where your player falls in it, and why this decision was made, please go here.
