The MLTC has built a number of middle school town tennis teams that play in a competitive spring league. Currently, we host teams for the towns of:
These teams are the only option for inter-town team play in the spring that can help kids prepare for the next step into high school competition. Players compete in matches where they play other teams such as Wellesley and Weston. A membership to the MLTC is NOT needed and players outside of these towns can also join the team.
We run the program Monday through Thursday 3-5pm at MLTC East, 10 Granite Road in Acton. Mondays and Wednesdays are practice days and Tuesday and Thursday are match days. Players may opt to commit to 2 days a week ($425), 3 days a week ($495), or 4 days a week ($550). When choosing the 2 or 3 day options players must pick the specific days. At least one day must be a practice day and one day must be a match day.
The season runs for eight weeks beginning the Monday after April vacation and continues through mid-June. Practices are Mondays through Thursdays from:
- 2:15-4:30 (Littleton)
- 2:30-4:30 (Westford)
- 3:00-5:00 (Acton)
- 3:15-5:00 (Concord/Carlisle)
There is no program on Memorial Day and match dates will occur on either Tuesdays or Thursdays. Exact match dates are announced in early April.
The program is constructed to emphasize participation and to prepare kids for future high school play. Players do need to have a basic knowledge of the game and the ability to serve and rally. If your child has not been exposed to tennis or has not played enough to be able to serve or play points, then we offer a COMPLETELY FREE Sunday afternoon Middle School Prep class that runs from 12-1:30 each week during the session. This is for anyone in any town who is in the 6th-8th grades.
We can only accept a maximum of 18 participants on our Acton, Littleton and Concord/Carlisle rosters. There is a limit of 25 players on the Westford team. It will be first-come/first-served as long as players fit the above criteria. If you know your child would like to play, then be sure to register early and secure a slot.
Players may opt to commit to two days a week ($425), three days a week ($495) or all four days ($550). Acton and Concord practices are held at MLTC East located at 10 Granite Road in Acton. Littleton practices are held at MLTC West which is located at 102 Nonset Path in Acton. Westford practices and matches are held at the Stony Brook Middles School courts in Westford.
