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 June through July.  Clubs, schools, and program providers start forming teams and registering players in early May. Teams schedule their own practices. USTA NNM 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 details for 2020 are as follows:
 
2020 NNM JTT Summer Showdown:  All summer JTT matches have been cancelled as of July 13th - due to the NM Covid 19 social distancing restrictions, "no junior competition" rule and mask requirements for outdoor exercise. 
 
Due to the global pandemic, Jr. Team Tennis will look much different this summer. If you are interested in playing, check it out!
