The Houston Tennis Association received a grant from the USTA to help build Junior Team Tennis participation in the Houston area and is focusing on NJTL players at the parks.  This summer, players age 6 - 12 may try their hand at match play by participating in the JTT Pilot League.

Experience is preferred--ability to keep score and start the ball in play--but not required at the Red Ball Level.  Below is a brief description of the Red Ball and Orange Ball levels.

Red Ball: Played on a 36' court with Red low-compression ball. Scoring is 1st to 7 points and 2 out of 3 games.  Red Ball players will receive instruction for first portion of the day and then play matches.  Scores for some rounds will be recorded for JTT.

Orange Ball: Played on a 60' court with Orange low-compression ball. Scoring is short sets, no-ad, first to 4 games.  There may be brief warm-up or drills, but predominately match play.  Scores will be recorded for JTT.

NJTL Instructors will be on hand to coordinate JTT match play dates, along with volunteers who have gone through a clearance process. Parents are not required to stay for the play dates, but must drop off and pick up players at scheduled times as coaches are responsible for children during assigned times only. Each player should come prepared with a hat, sunscreen, towel, water, tennis shoes and anything else they may need.  It is summer in Houston so it will be HOT!!

Space is limited so sign up soon.  Deadline is June 6 unless filled earlier. No refunds will be issued and registration must be completed online.  Participation in the JTT Pilot means that registration information will be used for additional JTT registration on the TennisLink online system and possibly for USTA membership if desired.

The goal of this pilot is to get more kids involved in match play and consider JTT in the future.  Normal league fees run $33, but the pilot is offered at $15.

Should you have questions about the NJTL Pilot, please call the Youth Tennis Office at (832) 395-7561.  For questions specific to JTT, please call the Houston Tennis Association office at (281) 580-8313 x1003.
