Major Changes for 2018

  • Format change:  All local league and state championship matches will be 1 singles and 1 doubles. Note: 4 player minimum roster requirement for the local league has not changed.
  • Number of required players for state championship participation:  Only 3 players required to be available for eligible teams to participate in the state championships.

Colorado Rule Changes

  • Unrostered Players:  To avoid default, a facility coordinator or parent has 48 hours after being notified by a League Coordinator to roster their player.
  • Levels of Play:  10 CHMPS division will be played with a green ball. 10s are not allowed to play up to the 12s unless 1) There is not a 10 & Under team at their facility or 2) There is not a 10 & Under team for them to play against, forcing us to move the entire team up.
  • JTT Fall League:  Addition of the Girls 18s division.
  • Outstanding scores: Match scores that are outstanding for three weeks will be input as double defaults.  If matches are played prior to the score entry deadline, they may be emailed to USTA Colorado to be input.
     

 

About JTT

The team concept in Junior Team Tennis emphasizes fun, fitness, and friends. The focus in this kind of play is on enjoying the exhilaration of exercise and refining the skills that make tennis fun for players at all ages and levels of competition.

  • JTT is a 6 to 7 week summer program for boys and girls ages 18 and under. 

  • Fees vary by facility. Contact your local tennis facility for specific fees.

  • Teams are comprised of players of same gender (except 10 & Under) with a similar age and skill, and they compete against other teams from the same geographic region in one of four age divisions:

  1. 10 & under (10 & Under boys and girls are permitted to play on the same team)

  2. 12 & under

  3. 14 & under

  4. 18 & under

  • Within these age divisions, there is a level for beginner (Futures) intermediate (Challenger), and advanced (Championship) players. See additional details. 

  • The format for Junior Team Tennis is 2 singles matches and 1 doubles match. The team winning the most GAMES wins the team match.

  • A USTA MEMBERSHIP IS NOT REQUIRED; however, membership to the USTA has many benefits for players of all ages.
