USTA Junior Team Tennis League

  • Castro Valley/USTA Junior Team Tennis League

Junior Team Tennis League is on fire in Castro Valley! 

The CV Junior Team Tennis (CVJTT) is a non-traveling team experience for girls and boys, age 9-17.   USTA Junior Team Tennis is a national youth tennis league played in all 50 states. It’s not about the individual. USTA Junior Team Tennis is all about building your game while building a team.

Kids get together to play singles, doubles, and mixed doubles against other teams. It promotes values you would expect from any sport by fostering a spirit of cooperation, unity and individual self-growth. Also, it’s a fun environment for kids where they learn that succeeding is really more about how you play the game – win or lose.

Each season, the league members are placed onto one of four teams.  Every week the player scores points for themselves and for their team.  At the end of the season, the winning team receives a medal, as well as the most improved players. For more detailed information, e-mail me at

Register for the Summer, 2015 JTT League which begins June 28!

CV USTA Tennis Team League begins Sunday, June 28, 2015, 3:00 – 4:30 for players age 9-17.

The eight week spring team registration software will be active  in April, and the link is (oops, don’t have it yet!)

Although this is a non-traveling team, I spoke to the USTA and pathway points can be awarded for participation for CV JTT orange ball and yellow ball players.   I realize that this is important to many players so I’m working with the USTA to come up with a “blurb” so that we can all understand what pathway points means to CV JTT players.


Spring, 2015 Junior Team Tennis:

Thank so much for registering for Castro Valley JTT.  We are 24+ players strong!  We had a great practice on 3/22/15 and chose red T-shirts.  WE WILL STAND OUT!!!!!

April 29, 2012 – Castro Valley Junior Tennis league welcomes Lisa Dodson, creator of the Total Serve, who gave us a lesson on serving.

 With tennis racquets, balls and courts that are sized right, and play that is appropriate, kids build confidence, improve their skills and stay active.  Players participate at their level against opponents of similar skills.  The emphasis is placed on:

  • Participation
  • Effort
  • Sportsmanship

This low key competition is organized in a format to allow children to play again and again, whether they win or lose.  Matches are short in duration, players are grouped by ability and game modifications allow each child to experience success.  The kids play multiple matches both with and against a variety of players; serving, rally and scoring over a net. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Please contact Suzi Mills at (510) 881-5840 or at for information about the Castro Valley Junior Tennis League. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ HIGHLIGHTS from 2011: 11/13/11 Doubles Tournament – Congratulations to the players who participated in the doubles tournament for ages 7-8: Eddie Bakovic, Miranda Becquet, Caitlyn Cu, Mikella Diegert, Ava Eagan, Emma Fogle, Beckman Hart, Kyla Metchette and Pater Tanaka.
