Jr. Team Tennis



JTT_Logo_Southwest_1c_blue282_(2)Imagine playing tennis everyday with your best friends. Meet at the club, the school, or the park. Mix around and play some singles, doubles, and mixed. That's what Northern New Mexico offers during the summer with Junior Team Tennis.

Junior Team Tennis is a competitive league that runs from May through July.  Clubs, schools, and program providers start forming teams and registering players in early May. Teams schedule their own practices. NNMTA will schedule the match play and run a season playoff to determine advancing teams to sectionals. The divisions include:  12U (green ball), 14U & 18U Intermediate; and 12U (green ball), 14U & 18U Advanced. The 12s divisions only advance to Sectionals. The 14s and 18s divisions will advance to Sectionals and Nationals.  The details for 2019 are as follows:
Coaches Meeting: 
   MONDAY, MAY 13, 2019 @ 6:00pm @ Jerry Cline Tennis Center
