Junior Team Tennis

A central pillar to the Rippner Tennis junior program is our involvement in the United States Tennis Association’s (USTA) initiative to grow the game through team tennis opportunities. Some of the strongest memories that we have as adults are the moments from participating youth team sports. Tennis should leave these same memories in our conscious and, as a result, team tennis is growing throughout the country and in a big way throughout Austin.

Rippner Tennis is proud of the success our junior teams have had both locally and at the state level. Since 2012, we have sent five teams to the Sectional Championships, produced four local champions, and one state runner up. Our junior teams comprise players from 10-and-Under Tennis through the 18-and-Under groups. Beginners as well as the most advanced players compete for Rippner Tennis in this team format.

Time to claim your place on one of our many junior tennis teams and battle the rest of Austin clubs for the right to head to Sectionals!

Once again, we will be fielding teams in every age group and level so take a look at the following descriptions.
