What is Junior Team Tennis?
JTT is a competitive team tennis program. In the Capital District we have 6 different divisions of play (10 & under, 12 & under, 14 & under, 18 & under - intermediate, 18 & under – advanced, Non-Advancing 19 and Under), making JTT a good fit for beginners all the way up through High School Varsity tennis players. JTT is really what you make it! We have highly competitive players on our advanced teams who are looking to continue building skills in their off-season, but many of our teams are just out there to have fun together and share in the love of tennis!
When and where are the matches held?
The JTT Season goes from November - March, with Play-Offs in April.* Each team is scheduled for 10 matches during the season, so there will be byes on some weekends.
Matches are held on Saturdays and Sundays at the following clubs: Sportime Tennis in Schenectady, Tri-City Tennis in Latham, Old Chatham Tennis Club in Old Chatham and the Saratoga YMCA in Wilton.
*If Sectional Championships are held, qualifying teams will move on to the Sectional Championships in July (date tbd).
