JTT Spring 2008 Bucks and Philadelphia Co Leagues

Play Junior Team Tennis!

What is it?

It’s a coed team tennis league among area clubs and teams that runs mid-May through late June, on Saturday afternoons. We have leagues designed for intermediate and advanced players. Teams are divided up into a 14 and under division and an 18 and under division.

What do I need to do in order to play?

You can either find an existing team to play on, or create your own team! There are clubs and teams in the area that are looking for players. Each team must provide home courts for matches. Matches will take place on Saturday afternoons, and each match takes up 2 courts for about 2 hours. Home teams provide 2 cans of balls for each match. You also need at least 3 boys and 3 girls available to play each match. For more info, contact your Area League Coordinator.

How much does it cost?

Each player must pay a $15 for League Fees. This covers costs of T-shirts, Trophies, and Online Administration. Team fees may also be necessary to cover costs for balls, court fees, etc. They will pay league fees online. Players might also pay team fees for balls, court time and coaching.

What is the format?

The format is modified World Team Tennis. Each match will consist of one set each of boys singles, girls singles, boys doubles, girls doubles, and two sets of mixed doubles. You will need three boys and three girls to play each match, as a player can play in no more than 2 matches.

Advancement:

The teams that win each division will advance to the PATD District Championships on July 15th and 16th at the Upper Main Line YMCA. NOTE: In order to compete at Districts, every player must be a USTA member, and each team must pay $50-$60 team fee. Also, players must have played in at least 3 team matches in the league.
