Championship JTT / Regular JTT Differences
Championship differs from regular JTT in the following ways:
- Championship teams strictly follow national regulations.
- They are gender – specific. (Teams must have at least 3 boys & 3 girls.)
- Unlike regular JTT, where the highest possible advancement is the State Tournament, Championship JTT offers the possibility of advancing to both State & Sectional Tournaments. The 14 U & 18 U Advanced levels can advance as far as Nationals.
- There is no local play for Championship JTT.
- Regular JTT (not Championship) each player is required to play 2 matches (defaults do not count) to be eligible to advance to State, Sectionals or Nationals.
- Advanced players will receive L3 points.
Advanced & Intermediate teams / players will register on Tennislink. Look for the Championship JTT tab. League & Tennislink fees apply.
