Junior Team Tennis

Fall Season Sign-Ups Are On!

Sign-ups are going on now for the Fall season of Junior Team Tennis!  JTT provides a great opportunity for players to learn to compete in a fun team environment.  In our last two JTT seasons, two of NJTP’s teams advanced to Section Championships and placed 3rd and 4th in the Southern California Division!  We are looking forward to more fun matches and team spirit this season.

This time around, NJTP will be hosting teams in four divisions:

  • 10-and-Under Orange Ball
  • 10-and-Under Green Dot Ball
  • 12-and Under Yellow Ball
  • 14-and Under Yellow Ball

Please note that we will be having tryouts for this season.  All players must come to tryouts in order to participate.  Tryouts will be held from September 7th (Friday) through September 9th (Sunday).  Exact times will be announced soon.

We will have 6 players per team — 4 singles players and 2 doubles players.

Team practices will be held on Saturday afternoons from 11:00am to 12:30pm.

Matches will be held on Sundays, between 12pm to 4pm (start times will vary each week).

More Information

What is Junior Team Tennis?

Junior Team Tennis (JTT) is a USTA-sanctioned junior league for kids of ages 6 to 18, where teams play against other teams in their area.  JTT is similar in many ways to USTA’s adult tennis leagues.

Why Play Junior Team Tennis?

JTT is a lot of fun!  We have found that our students really enjoy being on a team and playing matches together with their friends.

JTT provides a good competitive match play environment, similar in some ways to playing tournaments.  You are typically playing matches against opponents you haven’t met before.  So you have to learn to stay focused, stay positive and develop winning strategies on-the-fly.

JTT is a great introduction to team play for players who eventually want to play on a high school team, and also provides good match play opportunities for those already on a school team.

Where is Junior Team Tennis Played?

Our JTT league section consists of clubs and parks around the San Fernando Valley and West Los Angeles area.  We play our home matches at El Cariso Park, and away matches are played at other clubs in our area — for example, Braemar Country Club in Tarzana, Porter Valley Country Club in Northridge, and Match Tough Tennis in Warner Center.
