GCA teams up with USTA's Jr. Team Tennis program for Greenville, SC to form tennis teams for ages 6-18. Coaches and Captains organize, and players are evaluated by a professional to determine the appropriate level of play (Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced). Beginners require no experience.

All matches are typically played on Friday afternoons (4pm or 6pm depending upon facility) and are held at the Pavilion, Southside Park, Holly Tree and/or Butler Springs Parks. In addition, teams practice at least one time per week at the time & place of the team's choosing.
