If you have questions about JTT, contact Michele at jrteamtennisobx@gmail.com.    

 

If your child has never played tennis and wants to play Jr. Team Tennis, make sure he or she takes at least a few lessons/clinics before April 15th.

 

A Jr. Team Tennis Registration form is attached here. If you register through Tennis Link, you still need to fill out this form (so that I have your information close at hand).

Practicalities: 

Racket: If you are uncertain what kind of racket you need, come out to a clinic, and Coach Tony Willingham can assist you. There are also online references.

Dress: Be comfortable. Wear "tennis" shoes to help prevent rolling an ankle. Wear layers in case you get hot.

Water: Bring a water bottle to clinics and matches. Sometimes, water and snacks will be provided at matches. 

Contact: Make sure to say hi and introduce yourself: make sure I have a contact number/that your forms have been turned in.
