Our Story

We hope to inspire kids to be active and have fun! It's never to early to learn to play tennis, golf or any youth sports ... it builds confidence, coordination and encourages teamwork and friendship. 

LMT was established in 1973, by a savvy tennis mom, Marilyn Kosten, who had two daughters competing in major junior tournaments. There was a need for fashionable and functional youth tennis apparel (the ball pocket was a must) and Little Miss Tennis was born with an order from Saks Fifth Avenue in New York.

Forty-some years later we continue to specialize in the finest junior tennis & sports apparel for girls and boys (Joe Puppy brand) for ages 3 - early teen... our pleated skirts, dresses and soft microfiber boys shorts are always best-sellers. 

Fun fact: one of our first dresses "the pinafore" was worn by Tracy Austin when she played and won the U.S. Open and then went on to make her debut in Wimbledon in 1979. You can see this at the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island. How fashion changes! (dress lower left). LMT was also the Wimbledon junior sponsor for many years.
