Calling All Junior Tennis Players

tennis pic for blog

The Intown Junior Tennis League is open to youth of ages 4-18 years with a desire to play tennis. Your child can participate with no previous match experience, it’s highly encouraged that each prospective player continues taking lessons from their current pro or takes programming with Vance Exley Tennis so that the player is ready for Saturday match play. By creating the Intown Junior Tennis League we are able to provide an opportunity to encourage our youth to participate in a fun competitive tennis environment, providing practice opportunities to learn the fine nuances of the game, including sportsmanship, ethics, etiquette, line calls, scoring and the serving sequence. We also provide them with more practice time and have focused on methods to enable juniors to compete by utilizing the 10 and Under Tennis format which downsizes the game for youth to participate on a more level playing field.

By participating in the Intown Junior Tennis League, junior players will learn and become accustomed to the rules and environment of match play all while having fun!
