Junior Tennis Opportunities

This summer will mark the 17th year for the USTA Youth Tennis Program in Watertown! It is the longest running USTA youth tennis program in Wisconsin! Please see the program flyer to get an idea of the details. Registration is OPEN at www.midwestteamtennis.com.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the program start date has been pushed to July 7 and registration now closes June 21. On June 20, we will get information from the city parks department on whether we will be able to hold the program. If we need to cancel, anyone registered will be notified and issued full refunds.

The program is always in need of coaches and volunteers and tennis experience is NOT required! Please consider volunteering your time and love of the game – you will LOVE working with these kids! Please contact Clayton at watertownyouthtennis@gmail.com if you can help in any way!

Another junior tennis opportunity offered again this year will be a USTA Junior Team Tennis team. This is the next step for older players, ages 11-14 (9-10 if skills are ready for match play), who are ready for actual match play. This program organizes a team to play matches against other area community teams. The players will sign up for the Midwest Team Tennis program which will serve as their practice day. Matches will be organized against other area teams. Match days and times will be determined, but should be Thursday evenings. If you would like more information about this program, please email watertownyouthtennis@gmail.com.

Please spread the word about this youth tennis information to anyone you know with children ages 5-14. Thank you!

We are also working on putting together organized match play opportunities for high school players ages 15-18. Please email watertownyouthtennis@gmail.com if you would like more information.
