USTA/MAS is coordinating a Jr Team Tennis (JTT) Invitational on March 3-4, 2012 at the University of Mary Washington and we'd like to invite you and your players to participate. If you have players that wanted to experience JTT but couldn’t commit to a 4-6 week program, here is their chance!
*By winning the invitational teams will get a wildcard to their districts on July 20.
The invitational will be a one day event so that teams do not have to commit to the whole weekend. JTT is a co-ed sport and a team must consist of at least 3 boys and at least 3 girls. All players on team must play in at least 3 matches to be eligible to advance. Any player with 350 or more MAS points as of Aug. 31, 2011 must play in advanced division.
