2014 Spring Season Newsletter
Read all about it in our Newsletter! Our players continue to impress! Read about all the fabulous players from 2013 season and get ready for our 60th year of Junior Tennis, 2014. There were several very exciting changes implemented in 2012 that proved to revolutionize the way kids learn and play tennis! JTL added a 10&Under age group to our league, which allows the children to rally longer and play quickly. Now the age groups are, 10&U, 12&U and 13&Over. We also customized our equipment (ball compression, court size) to each age group so that the children can develop skills, rally longer and play real tennis!
