Jr. Ladder is Underway
The ladder is free and open to all intermediate and advanced junior tennis players who would like to get more match experience. The maximum age is 14 (sorry, no high school players). Players will set up tennis matches with other juniors in the county. This ladder will allow junior players to play matches throughout the year, keeping their tennis skills going in between league seasons. If you are interested in joining the ladder, you can still do so by emailing Dan Klement. New players will start from the bottom and work their way up the ladder.
