JTT-Chp-8-U-webSome of the top 8-under, 10-under and 12-under tennis players in Florida represent their teams this weekend at the 2011 Jr. Team Tennis Summer Section Championship, July 22-24 at the Florida Tennis Center in Daytona Beach.

The 8-under, 10-under and 12-under age divisions will compete in novice, intermediate and advanced flights.

"The Summer Section Championships brings out the best junior tennis players," says USTA Florida Team Tennis Coordinator Michelle Willis. "This championship will feature 8-and-under players on the 36-foot court, 10-and-under players on the 60-foot court, 12-and-under Novice flight playing on the full court with a green transition ball, and 12-and-under Intermediate flight playing on a full court with a standard yellow tennis ball. It will be exciting to see the elite competition at each of these levels."
