Why would the LIITC be "closed out"?
This is the first year of the LIITC and we don't know how many players
will enter this event. We currently have one location for the
doubles and two for the singles. If we see the enrollment nearing
established indicators that capacity will be met, we will close that
category off. This will not be an exact science. If we see more middle
school players signing up than varsity, we will reduce the varsity
division to accommodate the larger middle school group.

Your entry will be confirmed by e-mail ( by phone if no e-mail address

Why do I have to join the
The LIITC is a joint effort between SCJTL and the USTA Eastern
Section and is designed to provide a tournament experience to school
tennis team players and to promote USTA membership. Even though USTA
membership is required there are many benefits to being a USTA Junior

supports local tennis programs developed thru the USTA.
