Rule Changes for 2013 Jr Team Tennis
Specific operating procedures and rule changes will be discussed in detail at the
facility coordinator meetings, but there are a couple of important changes for the
2013 season that may affect your planning.
10 and Under Divisions: Teams in all 10 and Under Divisions may be comprised with any
combination of boys and girls (all boys, all girls, combination of genders). There
will not be any gender designations for this age group. The 10’s will continue to play
with the “Orange Ball” on a 60’ court.
12 and Under Novice*, Intermediate B, and Intermediate A: These three levels in the 12
and Under Division will play with the “Green Ball” on a 78’ court.
*The 12 Novice level played with this ball in 2012.
Note: The 12 Advanced level will play with the traditional “Yellow Ball” on a 78’
These rule changes were voted on by the Junior Recreation Committee and presented as
Committee recommendations to the USTA Colorado Board of Directors. The Board voted
unanimously in favor of these changes. It is also important to note that the
Tournament Committee has also voted on (and the USTA Colorado Board approved)
virtually the same rules for sanctioned tournaments – namely that the entry and
intermediate levels play for 12 and Under tournaments will be with the green ball on a
