Junior Team Tennis

About Junior Team Tennis

Junior Team Tennis is an official USTA program to help JV and Varsity-level players improve their games on co-ed teams. Kids are places on teams for practice and competition with others of similar ability. Teams are formed in the age of 18U, 14U, and 12U divisions. Tryouts are required for players interested in securing a spot on one of our advanced level traveling team (SPUTniks). SPUT's competitive tennis programs offer young people a supportive team environment to develop their skills and learn the life lessons that competition provides.
