Junior Team Tennis (JTT) is the foundation of a tennis player’s career. After a player has started taking lessons and has learned the basics of a forehand, backhand and the serve they are ready to start playing tennis and Junior Team Tennis is the best format for them to get started. There isn’t the stress of a tournament format where if a player gets eliminated they get sent home. In JTT players form teams of other like skill and aged players and will play against other teams of like skill and age.
Scoring is accomplished for your team by winning games (not matches like in tournaments). When a player wins a game it adds to their team’s score. The team with the most games at the end of the day wins. These games accumulate over the course of a season and the team with the most games won at the end of the season wins their “flight”. Some flights are eligible to move on to Sectionals, which means they get to play other teams from the rest of Texas! The flights that move on are:
|Flights that advance to sectionals|
|10 and Under Green Dot||Intermediate|
|12 and Under 1.9 and Below||Formerly beginner|
|12 and Under 2.4 and Below||Formerly intermediate|
|12 and Under 2.5 and Above||Formerly advanced|
|14 and Under 2.5 and Below||Formerly beginner|
|14 and Under 3.4 and Below||Formerly intermediate|
|14 and Under 3.5 and Above||Formerly advanced|
|18 and Under 3.4 and Below||Formerly intermediate|
|18 and Under 3.5 and Above||Formerly advanced|
The JTT territory for the Fort Worth area is split into two different areas, the North and South. Below are maps that show the separate areas we cover. Dallas has its own territory as well but it isn’t listed here.
Just because you are not in one of these areas does not mean you cannot play in our leagues. You are totally welcome to play in the leagues, however you will be traveling for the matches.
