The 2016 JTT Tennessee State Championships were held in Memphis this year, July 29th - 31st 2016.

Junior Team Tennis teams from all around the state came to compete for their chance to make it to JTT Southern Sectionals. Forty teams and roughly three-hundred fifty players played in this year's Championships.

Play started on Friday and was followed by the annual players party. This years party was at the Memphis Zoo in the Zambezi River exhibit. Five-hundred and fifty people attended the party this year and it is a JTT Champs highlight. The players party really captures the spirit of JTT. It was a great team bonding opportunity and players had a blast. They got the chance to show off their moves on the dancefloor and we also had our prop box ready for attendees who wanted to add some style to their group pictures.

You can find pics from the players party and the rest of the tournament on the USTA TN JTT  Facebook

The winning teams will go on to compete in the Southern Junior Team Tennis Section Championships in Rome, Georgia on August 12-14.
