Tennis Heaton Junior World Tour events are a great way for children to compete and practice their skills in a fun friendly environment. For most tournaments players compete in small teams for points over a short series of matches. Winners are awarded medals and there are prizes to be won by other players too, with all players receiving certificates.
The Junior World Tour events will often take place at weekends or during schools holidays and are themed around the Grand Slam and professional tour events such as New York, Melbourne, Paris and London. Teams compete in various fun formats over 2-3 hours with lots of prizes to be won. The Junior World Tour events are aimed at players on the programme who are new to competition and who don’t play in regular external tournaments but more experienced tournament players are welcome to attend.
