2018 Traveling Tennis Details

Traveling tennis is a combination of practice and match play. Players have the opportunity to improve their skills, gain valuable match experience, and enjoy the social benefits of being part of a team. The main goal of our program is to create an enjoyable, memorable experience for all players.

Traveling tennis adheres to the USTA Jr. Team Tennis guidelines for match play schedule and tournaments.

We end our season with the USTA JTT Area Championship tournaments, with the winning teams advancing to the corresponding Section and National Championship (14U and 18U only). Local tournaments are held in the Twin Cities area; information on these tournaments is provided to players throughout the season. Additional USTA tournaments may be entered as desired.
