Granite State Kids Junior Team Tennis 

GSK is a non-profit organization that supports and promotes junior tennis in the Southern NH area. We use a team concept that emphasizes fun, fitness, and friends where the focus is on enjoying the exhilaration of exercise and refining the skills that make tennis fun at all ages.  Please join us!

USTA Jr. Team Tennis is the largest youth tennis program in the country, helping boys and girls ages 5 to 18 get in the game, get on court, and have a great time.

All levels of play are available from beginner through advanced. The emphasis is on developing skills through play, fun, teamwork and friendly competition plus the possibility of advancing to state, section, and national championships.

Recreational and competitive play are available.
