Team Creation

Traveling Tennis players must play at an Intermediate level (must be able to serve and rally) or Advanced level of play.  Teams will be balanced based on age, ability and male-female ratio.  The number of teams will be based on the number of registrations. ******Age (through August 31)*****.

We encourage all to sign up no matter the level of play (especially the 12U kids).  12U plays with a green dot ball that helps with ball control at this level. Our goal is to get you to the level of serving and rallying. 

Grade 4 – 12 eligible (ages 9-18), teams will include 6-12 players depending on availability– minimum of 6 players/team, required 3 girls and 3 boys per team.

We will have 12U, 14U and 18U teams.  Teams will NOT be set until after the first practice.  All registered players will be placed on a team.
