MN Junior Tennis League:

Learn and play tennis with the USTA 10 and under format! The USTA format allows all children ages 5 to 10 to learn the game in a modified format with shorter courts, transition balls, and smaller racquets. Just as in baseball, soccer, and basketball, players will be placed on tennis teams and play against other teams. This seven-week program starts with 75-minute long practices run by our league managers for the first three weeks. The last four weeks, we’ll continue with 30 minutes of practice followed by 45 minutes of a team match against another team. As opposed to a clinic, the league gives participants an opportunity to experience match play. All players will receive a uniformed shirt, award, and ceremony at the conclusion of the season. To register and/or additional information please visit www.local.phillyteamtennis.org, call Justin DePietropaolo at 610-450-4816, or email him at Justin@phillyteamtennis.org.
