This year’s USTA Southern Junior Team Tennis Section Championships drew the top coed 62 teams and about 520 players from Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. More than 1,000 persons were expected to stay in Rome and Floyd County, Georgia including parents, coaches and siblings of the competitors. Matches were played Aug. 11-13 at the Rome Tennis Center at Berry College in Rome, Ga. 
 
USTA’s JTT program supports coed and single-gender teams in four age levels. Teams compete in 10 and under, 12 and under, 14 and under and 18 and under levels. Within each age level, teams also play in two different skill levels -- intermediate and advanced -- and the new 18 and under advanced-low level. A team match consists of boys’ and girls’ singles, boys’ and girls’ doubles, and mixed doubles. JTT teams represent various clubs, parks, recreational departments and organizations, that have finished at the top of their local leagues and advanced through state championships. 
 
Here is the complete list of champions and finalists/second-place teams.
