USTA (Tennis) Puerto Rico Sharks to compete in 2013 USTA JR. 14U National Championships

The Caribbean Intermediate “Sharks” team from San Juan, P.R. will compete in the 2013 USTA Jr. Team Tennis 14U National Championships, held at the Cayce Tennis & Fitness Center in Cayce, S.C., Oct. 18 – 20.
The 2013 USTA Jr. Team Tennis 14U National Championships will bring together the top 32 teams (250 players) at Intermediate and Advanced levels from various USTA Sections throughout the country.

The team features Alesandra Echeandia, Francisco Feliciano, Stephanie Gonzalez, Guillermo Jimenez, Juan Marrero, Andres Ortiz and Veronica Ruiz. In all, four municipalities of Puerto Rico are represented on the team.

The National Championships serves as the crown jewel of USTA Jr. Team Tennis as the nation’s top teams compete for the title. Each year the USTA crowns a national champion in two age divisions (14U and 18U) in both the Intermediate and Advanced play divisions. 

Established in 1991, USTA Jr. Team Tennis provides youth with all of the health and social benefits of tennis in a co-ed, fun and competitive team environment, and allows participants to compete with and against individuals of similar skill and age levels. It promotes social skills and important values by fostering a spirit of cooperation and unity, as well as individual self-growth. USTA Jr. Team Tennis is also a fun environment for kids to learn that succeeding is really more about how they play the game—win or lose.
