Team Tennis

Given a choice, there aren't a lot of kids who'd choose to play by themselves. Kids, as you've probably noticed, like to be with other kids. That's the idea behind USA Team Tennis for youth. It takes tennis - a game long recognized as an individual sport - and turns it into a team activity. USA Team Tennis offers boys and girls the opportunity to play on teams in leagues that emphasize fun, fitness and friends. Leagues match players of similar age and ability using the Junior National Tennis Rating Program. Teams play in one of three divisions (Red, White or Blue) depending on their age and skill level and face off against other teams in their area. Kids get involved in a healthy, active sport and they stay involved, because they're part of a team. As a result, they learn more than tennis, they learn the importance of teamwork while having a ball with their friends. In tennis terminology, that's known as a "perfect match."
