USTA SPRING JUNIOR TEAM TENNIS begins April 24 
with a Free Kids Play Day at Jaycee Park

The United States Tennis Association has done something amazing -- created a sports league for kids exactly the way you'd build it. It's called Junior Team Tennis (JTT) and is the largest youth tennis league in America..

Junior Team Tennis grows and changes as your child grows and changes. We introduce children to tennis on smaller courts with lower nets and softer balls. As they grow, the courts and equipment change to fit their new skills.   JTT is organized by age AND ability - so children from 6 to 18 always play kids with matching skills.  

Our SPRING 2016 Junior Team Tennis program begins on the Jaycee Park courts in Reidsville on Sunday April 24 with a free Play Day.  Play for registered players continues on the next 4 Sundays with 3 matches and a USTA Level 6 tournament.  One $45 registration fee covers participation in all JTT matches and tournament play.  Players must be USTA members to join our team. (Membership is free for the first year for players 10 and under.)

See flyer below for JTT registration information or contact Shelby Rhyne, RC Tennis Executive Director at (614) 284-4716 RCTennisAssociation@gmail.com
