About The Combine

The JMTA College Recruiting Combine gives prospects access to the country's top college coaches, and gives coaches in-person, "live", access to prospects, along with detailed tennis and fitness performance reporting, to help them find the right recruits for their programs. Match results from the Combine count toward prospects' Universal Tennis Ratings (UTR).

Prospects who apply for entry into the Combine are evaluated using a variety of criteria designed to identify the most talented player pool and those most likely to be actively recruited by the coaches in attendance. The Combine provides all participant players with a personal player portal that stores event information, match draws and scores and fitness testing results. A college coaches' panel will be a weekend highlight for players and parents. Players will also be invited to take part in an informative mental toughness seminar presented by a panel of the John McEnroe Tennis Academy's greatest minds.

A new Combine partner, CIZR, will be video-recording all matches and will offer participant packages, including match videos with detailed analytics, which videos will be available for participants to send directly to college coaches.

Eligible Players
Space is limited to 60 Boys and 60 Girls entering their high school sophomore, junior or senior years in September 2018.
