Youth tennis has been scaled down to size, with smaller racquets, lower-bouncing balls and shorter courts that allow kids to have success playing right from the start. And as they mature and grow, tennis grows with them. The USTA offers Junior Team Tennis, Junior Tournaments and no-cut high school programs to get kids in the game – and to keep them playing for life.
Hudson Tennis Association is excited to announce our spring and summer tennis programs. We have some new camps and an old favorite. This spring will see a new Junior Team Tennis program for middle school aged kids. Our Little Pro's Tennis Camp will be back in June and July for ages 5-7 and another new addition will be the Junior Pro's for ages 8-10.
The Little Pros summer tennis camp was started in the summer of 2018. The clinic had 23 participants between the ages of 5-10 years old. It was a hit with the kids so much so that we had over 50 kids sign up for the 2019 summer edition of Little Pros.
Unfortunately 2020 saw us suspending play due to Covid-19 but look for another great year in 2021 as we once again plan to host the Little Pro's and new to 2021 the Junior Pro's clinic at the Hudson High School tennis courts. Sessions will take place Tuesday evenings in June and July.

Junior Team Tennis will begin it's inaugural season this spring at the Hudson Tennis Association.
USTA Northern Junior Team Tennis helps girls and boys ages 6 to 18 get in the game, get on the court and have a good time. The emphasis is on skill development, fun, teamwork and friendly competition. There are a number of team tennis options available in USTA Northern for junior players of all ages and ability levels.
Junior Team Tennis is the largest team tennis program in the United States. It is a "traditional" team tennis format where a minimum of three boys and three girls form a team based on Junior NTRP Ratings and compete for the right to advance to the National Championships.
Match formats consist of one set of boys singles, girls singles, boys doubles, girls doubles and mixed doubles and the match is determined by total-games won. There are minimum match requirements and you must compete in local season matches in order to play at Section championships, and possibly the National championship.
Players must be a USTA Member to participate in Junior Team Tennis. If you are not a member currently it is easy and free to sign up.
Note that the spring program is a instructional version of the JTT program and a jumping point into the Summer program in which details will be announce at a later date.
While this is certainly not all of the opportunities available for youth tennis in the metro area it's a start. Listed are a few programs available.
