What is Middle School Team Tennis?

UVT Middle School Team Tennis is an opportunity for boys and girls grades 7-9 to participate in after-school team tennis. Players of all levels and experience are encouraged to come have fun with their friends. Whether you are an advanced player seeking more opportunities to compete or a novice seeking to learn tennis, UVT Middle School Team Tennis has something for everyone. 

 

UVT currently competes in the Provo and Alpine school districts. Teams practice 2-3 times per week after school and play a match each week against another team. Nearly all practices and matches are held at the middle school courts. There is no tryout to participate on the team, everyone is welcome.

 

How do the competitive matches work?

Match competition formats are similar to high school tennis competitions. Each team has a varsity squad, a JV squad, and an exhibition squad.

  • The varsity squad consists of the top 8 players. The varsity squad of one team will play against the varsity squad of another team in the following format: 1st Singles, 2nd Singles, 1st Doubles, 2nd Doubles, 3rd Doubles.

  • The JV squad consists of the next top 8 players. The format for JV is the same for varsity.

  • The exhibition squad consists of the next group of players, and they play doubles matches against the exhibition squad of the other team.

  • If your child would like to participate with the team at practice, but would rather not play competitive matches that is fine.

At the end of the season, the teams and players will compete in post-season tournaments.

Who are the coaches and directors?

Each team has its own coach that runs practices and matches and is in charge of player placement and development. The coaches are hired from a pool of local tennis coaches and competitive tennis players. Only the best candidates are selected. There are also paid and volunteer assistant coaches who help the kids throughout the season.
