What is Junior Team Tennis?
Junior Team Tennis is simply where children play tennis on a team with their friends.  They love the opportunities team play offers for camaraderie, fitness, and friendly competition. The focus in this kind of play is on enjoying the game and refining the skills that make tennis fun at all ages and levels of competition.  Junior Team Tennis provides just such opportunities while emphasizing fun, fitness, and friends for player ages 6 to 18 of all skill levels. 

In Western Michigan, Jr. Team Tennis for youth is divided up into four sessions (Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall). The Spring session begins in April/May outdoors on weekends, Summer session begins in June and ends in July. Fall is from September to October.  The Winter season begins in January and ends in early March.  These sessions do not interfere with either high school/middle school seasons.  


Types of Junior Team Tennis

1.  In-House Leagues - created right inside a program, teams are formed and play is scheduled at one spot giving the players and parents the convenience of one site to play.  League are with no membership required.

2.  District Junior Team Tennis - these teams offer a flexible format as well as the same $8 league fee!  Play is generally more travel oriented, but we still try to make it all in one area.  No membership is required here too!  Teams here can participate in our district championships. The teams can be made up of any combination of boys and girls with 4 as the minimum.

3.  Championship Junior Team Tennis - this league allows for teams to advance to our districts, sectional and national champioinships.  Teams are 3 boys and 3 girls and do require membership. League fee is $15.
