JTT Buffalo Kicks Off the Winter Season
JTT Buffalo 2013 held a Kickoff Event on Saturday, February 9, 2013 at Miller Tennis Center in Williamsville, NY. The event attracted more than 100 attendees, including 70 USTA Jr. Team Tennis (JTT) players, along with parents and volunteers.
The evening began with food and beverages and an informational meeting conducted by new Area League Coordinator (ALC), Kathy Connelly. That was followed by JTT match practice play and drill clinics on all eight Miller Tennis Center courts. 
All of the players in the League received t-shirts and wristbands courtesy of Buffalo Niagara Community Tennis Association (BNCTA).
The mission of JTT Buffalo is to encourage kids to have fun, be active, grow in self-esteem, and enjoy a positive team experience. As one enthusiastic JTT participant noted, “I am excited to be able to play tennis and be part of a team!!”
For the first time, the JTT League in the Buffalo area will include a 10 and under and a 12 and under division. There are 85 players signed up for the Winter League, and matches will begin the weekend of February 22-24. Winning teams from all four divisions (10U, 12U, 14U, and 18U) will have the opportunity to advance to Regional, Sectional, and National events throughout 2013.
