Junior Team Tennis (JTT)

PLEASE READ TO THE END... Important links below

Deadline to Register a TEAM is Sun Oct 27, 2019 

Join the more than 200 players that are PLAYING and not just practicing!

Junior Team Tennis (JTT) is our solution to the practice dilemma. In every other sport, competition is built-in, but in tennis that is not the case, Players have to take the extra step of registering for tournaments or other competitive opportunities and for many, it never gets it done.

But we have solved that problem for you!

Our Strategy… For years our club has been trying to address this dilemma with limited results. Many families have decided they can only commit to one day of tennis and that is it. These are the same families that would never consider putting their child in soccer, swimming, T-ball or any other sport where all they do is only practice. One day a week is not enough to get better at anything. Piano, band, sports, all require at least a 2 day per week commitment to see any significant improvement. The following are our initiatives to increase Play amongst our juniors:

1) Play within classes: Since session 1 (Sept-Oct) and session 4 (Mar-May) are smaller because some of our players are in HS season, we will restructure our clinics to include point play and match right inside the class. This is possible (on most days) because the weather allows us to play outside during those months.

2) Junior Team Tennis: For sessions 2 and 3 (Oct-Mar), our goal is to put all of our lesson participants into a weekly match play using the Junior Team Tennis format. Our club has committed to paying the registration fee for every player that wants to be involved so that the only expense they have to add a second day a week is a nominal court fee that occurs only when they play a match. Join us at the parent info meetings on either of the dates below: All meetings are at the DeWitt Tennis Center. 

3) Player Registration: Players can register as a team with friends or as individuals and we will do our best to put you on a team.

4) Parents Meetings: about JTT are scheduled on Mon Oct 21, 2019, at 6 pm  OR  Wed Oct 23, 2019, at 6 pm
