Many of the nation’s most promising junior tennis players compete in the WTT Junior Nationals presented by Advanta.  This tournament is a premier national junior invitational event featuring 16 co-ed teams from throughout the United States.  The teams use the WTT format during their three days of non-elimination draw competition.  In addition to the competition, players also participate in seminars and a clinic hosted by event host and WTT co-founder Billie Jean King.  The 16 teams receive grants of $500 each from Billie Jean King WTT Charities, Inc.
Team members are selected based on their sectional and national rankings, but were NOT eligible if they attain a ranking of 1-150 on the USTA Seed Selection List as of May 15, 2008. The targeted junior players are 14-18 years of age.

Tournament matches follow the WTT non-elimination draw format. The 16 co-ed teams are divided into 4 groups.
