Tennis should always be FUN! Because JTT offers so many different levels of team tennis, you can select a Division that will challenge your child, while allowing them to succeed. JTT offers Beginner through Advanced levels which play using Red Ball, Orange Ball and finally the Green Dot ball.

By matching a child’s age with the right size court, match format and ball; JTT makes tennis fun for kids as young as 5! In 8U JTT, kids are given the opportunity to focus on their rallying and movement because of the age appropriate match format. (The 8U serve is a self feeding forehand.) Kids from the age of 5, learn to love the game of tennis! As the kids get more tennis experience, JTT offer doubles competition and lastly a Green Dot league for advanced players.

Richmond offers many leagues for young players including: 8U Red Ball, 10U Beginner Orange Ball, 10U Intermediate Orange Ball, and 10U Green Dot Ball.
