HighFiveJTTJunior squads from across the section will be in Tucson in early August for the USTA Southwest Jr. Team Tennis Championships. 

This annual section championship brings together nearly 250 players comprising roughly 25 co-ed clubs competing for a shot to earn the title of Southwest's best junior squads as well as a coveted bid to the national championships in the 14s and 18s divisions.

Four divisions of play will take place at this year's event, including divisions for  12 & Under Intermediate, 14 & Under Intermediate, 18 & Under Intermediate and 18 & Under Advanced

Section winners of  the latter three of those divisions will each advance on to the USTA Jr. Team Tennis National Championships held in October of this year in South Carolina.

At the Section Championships, teams will compete in co-ed play in a games-won format to decide each match. Team matches are five lines of play in boys singles, boys doubles, girls singles, girls doubles and mixed doubles.  

Set score is shortened to four games (tiebreaker at 3-3) sets for 12 & Under competitions, and six game sets (tiebreakers at 5-5) for the 14s and 18s.

Play will begin on Friday August 10 at 5:30, following team check-in for the event. Play will take place from 7 am - 2 pm on Saturday and Sunday, with awards ceremonies following the completion of each division of play.
