2021 Currituck Fall Jr. Team Tennis
Jr. Team Tennis is a great way for middle school students (and high school freshmen!) to learn the game of tennis by playing in a fun, low-pressure league. The league is open to children age 11-14, as of August 31, 2021.
Signing up for the program entitles a student to join a team and play in a season of six team matches. Matches are played on Thursday evenings, and begin on Thursday, September 23rd at 6:00pm.
Your registration fee pays for a team t-shirt, balls for league matches, and awards at the end of the season.
The league will be divided into two divisions: a "green-ball" dvision for students who are just learning the game, and a "yellow-ball" division for those who have some experience. The "green" ball is the same size as the standard "yellow" tennis ball, but it is lighter and less bouncy, making it easier for beginning players to control.
Players will be placed on teams in such a manner that each team has a mix of experienced and beginning players, giving each team a reasonable chance to succeed. Four to six players will be assigned to each team.
Registration is now open, and continutes until September 16th. Players must be at least 11 years old by August 31st, but cannot turn 15 prior to that date.
Please understand that there is no "instruction" component to the league, other than that which is gained by playing the matches under the guidance and supervision of adult and high school "team managers". If your child wants to take lessons or clinics, those are available under the Instruction tab our website.
Registration takes place online through the USTA's TennisLink system. USTA membership is required to participate, but USTA membership for juniors is now free for all players under age 18. The league registration fee is $15.00.
