Junior Tennis in Southern California

Some of the greatest tennis players of all time are rooted in Southern California. From the emergence of Michael Chang to the brilliance of Lindsay Davenport, from the first childhood volleys between the Williams sisters to the sibling symmetry of the Bryan brothers, these legends began as talented youngsters who started their celebrated journeys in Southern California.

Today, our extraordinary juniors are among the best in the nation and across the globe. USTA SoCal programs are platforms for athletic achievement, physical development, and personal growth. Junior tournaments set the stage for players to compete and excel among their peers and build the skills and character that can carry them into college and beyond.

Welcome to the Net Generation

Tennis development begins with a program called Red/Orange/Green (R/O/G), which uses special equipment that allows young people to be successful on the court. Upon completion of R/O/G, junior players can participate in a pathway of SoCal team competitions and junior tournaments, which can lead to regional, national, and international competitions.


USTA Tournaments provide a competitive showcase for every junior regardless of age or skill level. Junior tournaments feature singles, doubles, and mixed doubles play. For the serious player, junior tournaments can lead to being selected for regional or national competition as a representative of #TeamSoCal!

Junior Team Tennis

Tennis is one of the most exciting team sports for youngsters. Junior Team Tennis combines the fun and camaraderie of youth sports with singles and doubles tennis. Reach the Section Championships, or advance even further to enroll in Competition Training Centers and strive for the CTC Cup!

Wheelchair & Adaptive

Tennis is a game for all ages and skill levels – and that includes the athletes who participate in wheelchair tennis and adaptive sports. In Southern California, Wheelchair Tennis programs are plentiful and reflective of the great talent that emerges from our Section. Adaptive Tennis programs are also available in Southern California so that everyone can enjoy the benefits of the sport!


Southern California prides itself on grooming players who display outstanding sportsmanship as they compete in our Section and across the United States as representatives of #TeamSoCal. Good sportsmanship is as simple as following the rules and showing respect for the game and the opponent. We play hard and we play fair, each and every time we step on the court.
