April 6, 2010 07:00 PM
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – April 7, 2010 -- All local USTA Jr. Team Tennis players that have participated in an official USTA Jr. Team Tennis Spring season program are eligible for the 2010 USTA Florida Jr. Team Tennis Spring Sectional Championships, April 24-25, 2010, at Sanlando Park and Red Bug Tennis Park in Altamonte Springs, Fla.

Players must have a current USTA junior membership and have played in at least three different local league matches (that means 3 different match identification numbers). The registration deadline for team captains is April 10, 2010.

Individual player ranking points will apply for the 2010 USTA Jr. Team Tennis Spring Sectional Championships, first initiated in 2009.

"Higher-level players want to participate in the advanced and intermediate divisions, and we want to reward them for participation," said Michelle Willis, team tennis coordinator, USTA Florida. "All teams are invited to be a part of the three Section Championships held in Florida, and of course winning the Sectional Championship and representing USTA Florida at JTT Nationals is always exciting."

An official team must have at least six (6) different players (three girls and three boys minimum) on its roster and on its scorecards for all matches throughout the tournament, with no person playing more than two times during a specific match.

A league may enter as many teams in any division as long as they are eligible to attend. Each team must have a designated captain who is responsible for only that team. Captains may not be responsible for more than one team at any time during the championship.

Team entry will be done on-line by using the TennisLink Championship Registration system. Additionally teams will need to e-mail Michelle Willis with the team roster at willis@florida.usta.com no later than April 18th, 2010.

The first place team in the 14s and 18s divisions will be eligible for a wildcard into the USTA Florida Jr. Team Tennis Summer Sectional Championships. 

Teams representing all 17 USTA Sections from across the country will compete in Surprise, Ariz., in October 2010.
