USTA Junior Team Tennis is a very popular junior recreational program and Georgia has one of the largest in the country.  This nationwide program is designed to provide youngsters with a fun team format consisting of singles, doubles and mixed play for boys and girls of all skill levels.  Local leagues can qualify players to the USTA Junior Team Tennis State Championships, with further advancement to the USTA Southern Sectional Championships and National Championship competition. 


Intermediate  and Advanced Level Eligibility

The Junior National Tennis Rating Program (JNTRP) in TennisLink is the official system for determining play levels for USTA National Championship Junior Team Tennis programs for 12U, 14U and 18U Intermediate and Advanced divisions.  Players with a JNTRP rating of 3.5 and above must play Advanced.  For the Advanced Low division, all players in the division cannot be rated higher than 3.9 at the time of registration.  Advanced Low divisions will be eligible to advance to State and Section Championships but not National Championships.

Rating descriptions


The 10U division will not use ratings.  Players with a 1-100 Southern Section standing in the 10's as of the end of March 9, 2020 and who are playing in the 10's must play Advanced. If a 10U player has played up in the 12s and has a  JNTRP rating of 3.5 or above the player must play Advanced.

A player with a JNTRP rating of 3.4 or below at time of registration and meets the below standing criteria is eligible to play Intermediate. 
Players with a JNTRP of 3.5+ or a Southern standing inside the range listed in the table below must play in the Advanced division. The March 9, 2020 standings lists will be used for players who must play advanced. Please note that March 9 standings lists are being used considering these were the last lists published before the suspension of play due to COVID-19.
