A letter from Director of Tennis, NTC

NTC Junior player's parents

As we approach the beginning of our Fall Session, full of exciting changes in our programs, we would like to remind you of the importance of competition as part of your child's developmental journey. Participation in tournaments, Junior Team Tennis, Leagues and Play Days is a key component when developing a player and making stronger ties with the sport. While competing, it's important to remind young players that sportsmanship, effort, and problem-solving are amongst the key concepts they should be focusing on; not the outcome.
In order to facilitate the tournament search and registration process, we are including the necessary information below, as well as providing a list of local 10U tournaments for your convenience. Additionally, we are attaching important reference guides, explaining the different levels, progressions and other relevant information for players aged 10 and under and 12-18.

To register for a tournament:
Sign-up or renew your child's USTA account
For new members, free first year for 10U players -
For players 11 and older or who had a membership in the past -

Register for tournament(s) at TennisLink

  • On the search box, include the tournament ID (shown on the provided list) or search for other tournaments using the "Tournaments Advanced Search" functionality located near the search box
  • Click on "Register Online" (shown if registration is open)
  • Add membership ID # (which may automatically populate)
  • Click on Continue
  • Add e-mail address & phone number

We are looking forward to continue working with your child in the Fall and optimistic with the future of our programs.
