Junior Challenger Series

What is it?

The Junior Challenger Series League is an excellent training ground for match experience

The JCSL is a competitive junior league that helps kids to learn to play matches and it also helps those who already play to become better competitors. The ultimate goal is to become ready for tournament competition.

The program is run through our sister organization, The Massachusetts Tennis Association (MTA).  One of the functions of the MTA is to provide accurate ratings for players so that they can be properly placed into leagues.

What is the schedule?

You can see the JCSL schedule by visiting our schedule page and clicking here.

What is the cost?

This program breaks down to being only $21 per class for 1.5 hours and $28 for 2 hours!  Players must also have a membership to MLTC East or West in order to participate.  Membership information can be found here.

What is the match format?

In our Sunday doubles JCSL, players are partnered with a different player each week and they play against different opponents each week.  For green and yellow ball players, we also offer a Saturday singles option.

What are the advantages/disadvantages?

The advantages are substantial:

  1. Consistent feedback at ALL of the matches since a pro will be there to watch.
  2. Practices/clinics are optional.
  3. The levels will be consistent since they are regulated by our organization.

The only disadvantage is that some players may prefer a travel-team experience, but the time commitment to an inter-club travel team is significantly greater.
