Junior Tennis Teams Now Forming

February 28, 2007 03:24 PM

A minimum of three boys and three girls are needed to form a team, and just two teams can make a league. There are age divisions in 14 and under and 18 and under, both intermediate and advanced in each. Each team is coached by a parent, just like other little league programs. The only other thing needed is a place to play and, since it’s usually held in the spring, outdoors is fine. In July, there are district and section championships. Teams play one match a week. The format is one set of boys’ and girls’ singles and doubles and two sets of mixed doubles. Last year a team from Willingboro went to the nationals in San Diego and came back with many lasting memories.
