The Bitterroot Junior Team Tennis (JTT) team was founded in 2017 when the BTA became a provider of the United States Tennis Association's (USTA) Net Generation initiative to help introduce tennis to a new generation of players.
JTT is played by players 6-18 years old as 2-person teams. A team is made of one male and one female player. They each play a singles match, and as a team they play a mixed doubles match. The BTA also has a JTT Traveling Team...see our
Jr. Programs Brochure for locations, and jump on the team!
Local schools also partnered with the BTA and Net Generation to help introduce tennis as a PE unit, and some of those students have joined the Bitterroot JTT!
As a National Tennis and Learning chapter (NJTL), the BTA strives to provide free to low cost tennis activities combined with academic opportunities. During JTT sessions, one-on-one and group tutoring is available for players by certified teachers and volunteers.
Additionally, as a USTA NJTL chapter, the Bitterroot Tennis Association offers its Jr. members an opportunity to enter the USTA Essay Contest for a chance to win an all expenses paid trip to Arthur Ashe Kid's Day at the US Open! Also, as a member of the Bitterroot JTT, they are eligible to apply for USTA college scholarships. In 2020, Holly Mahon, one of our Bitterroot JTT members was awarded with the $10,000.00 Rosalind P. Walter College Scholarship!!

Now is an especially exciting time for youth to participate in the various activities that are currently being offered.
