USTA Jr. Team Tennis is the largest youth tennis league in the country, helping girls and boys ages 6 to 18 get in the game, get on the court, and have a good time. Teams are coed and made up of at least six players (three boys and three girls) based on similar ages and skill levels. The emphasis is on skill development, fun, teamwork, and friendly competition, all with the possibility of advancing to the national championship. Tennis is a sport individuals can play for life, and Jr. Team Tennis lays the foundation for a lasting relationship.

The United States Tennis Association (USTA) is the national governing body for the sport of tennis and the recognized leader in promoting and developing the sport's growth on every level in the United States, from local communities to the crown jewel of the professional game, the US Open.
