Jr. Davis Cup & Jr. Wightman Cup - 18 & Under

JUNIOR DAVIS CUP and JUNIOR WIGHTMAN CUP - 18 & Under Division.

Selection to be a member of the Junior Davis Cup (boys) or Junior Wightman Cup (girls) team, representing the entire district, is an honor reserved for highly competitive players who also exhibit the highest standards of sportsmanship and cooperation. The tournament introduces junior players to the college format of dual match play, and is an excellent opportunity to showcase the talents of team members to various college coaches that attend each year. The participation fee for each player, which includes a uniform, housing, meals, and transportation, is subsidized by district funds to some extent.

This tournament counts for USTA Midwest Ranking for the 18 & under age division, and is primarily geared for high school players in that division. Players competing in the 18 & under age division will be considered before those in younger divisions. Outstanding players in younger age divisions may also be invited to participate as part of the team.

A team match consists of pro-set doubles matches, followed by six singles matches, requiring a minimum of six players. Typically, eight players are selected for each boys team and girls team. Alternates will also be named in the event that one of the selected players is unable to participate.

Considerations for Junior Davis and Junior Wightman Cup Team Selection:

1. USTA Midwest standings.
2. Recent tournament results, including high school playoffs involving other NITA candidates, and place on Midwest & District standings lists as of mid-April.
3. Good sportsmanship, good court etiquette, and ability to get along well with fellow team members essential for consideration.
4. Must be a resident of a county included in the NITA district.
5. Must be a current member of the USTA and be age eligible through the end of the event.
