“Junior Team” is a general term (originating with the USTA) and refers to all of our programs that emphasize intermediate skills, competition and team. It is for those players who have previously played tennis, know basic rules, etiquette and scorekeeping. Junior Team typically involves some travel and competitive match play against other communities. We will continue to utilize Laura MacArthur Courts one to two mornings a week to emphasize match play as well as Longview in the afternoons for practice. Please include date of birth, USTA # with expiration date, and parent email address.
NOTE: All Junior Team programming runs June 10 through August 8 (9th in the event of rain that week). No tennis the week of July 4th
