What is JTT?
•Junior Team Tennis is a USTA program hosted by Gates Tennis Center that brings kids with all levels and ability team together to get experience in singles and doubles match play. Teams play home matches at Gates and away matches at other nearby tennis facilities. This program is a great way for juniors to get match experience and play other juniors in a friendly competition.
