The USTA Florida Jr. Team Tennis Fall Section Championship drew 62 teams to the Florida Tennis Center in Daytona Beach on Dec. 11-12, 2010.

Six division winners were crowned, but the Top 4 teams from each division earned an invitation to the USTA Florida Jr. Team Tennis ITC Invitational, to be held on Feb. 26-27, 2011, during the ATP Delray Beach International Tennis Championships.
"Saturday was a beautiful day of tennis," said USTA Florida Team Tennis Coordinator Michelle Willis. "Sunday was halted around 11:30 a.m. when the rain, 20 m.p.h. winds and cold front came in. The matches had to be called and the tournament cut short, with division winners determined by game-winning percentage." 

In the 12-and-under division, Gainesville's "Kick Aces" finished ahead of Pinellas County's "Largo Hulk Smash" for the Intermediate title, and Gainesville's "G-Power" won the Advanced title, edging runners-up "Daytona Heavy Hitters" from Volusia County.

In the 14-and-under division, the Volusia County "Punishers" won the Intermediate title, finishing ahead of runners-up "Sanlando Smash" from Seminole County. "GLB" from the Gainesville area won the Advanced title, finishing ahead of "HP Seminoles" from Leon County, a first-time team.

In the 18-and-under division, the "Sanlando Dream Team" from Seminole County won the Intermediate title, finishing ahead of runners-up "Port Orange Ripdogs" of Volusia County. Taking the Advanced title was the "Port Orange Hawks" of Volusia County, who finished ahead of runners-up "Florida Yacht Club" of Jacksonville.
