Kansas City Junior Tennis League was formed in 1954 to provide organized team match play for beginning and novice tennis players in the Kansas City metropolitan area. KCJTL is incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation, under IRS code 501c7. The league is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors elected by representatives of the member clubs and facilities. Each club/facility has volunteer parents who organize the team ladders and supervise league matches and a tennis professional who oversees the program.
The day-to-day operation of the league is handled through management hired by the Board of Directors. The league office, run by the KCJTL Executive Director, handles the management and operations of the league; acts as a central clearinghouse for inquiries and information; is responsible for all scheduling; distributes league standings; collects all rosters, registration forms and fees; and coordinates overall management of league competition and the postseason tournament.
