Introduction of an 11U age group

An 11U age group will be introduced at all levels of competition. This will support players with making the transition from Green to Yellow ball. The 11U age group will compete using a yellow ball, however at some levels we may stipulate the use of a green ball.

Players will be able to play in the 11U age group when their tennis age is 10 or 11.   In 2020, players born in 2009 or 2010 will be eligible to compete at 11U. Competitive opportunities will exist at all grades of competition in both a team and individual format.

Players competing in the 11U age group will earn 11U ranking points and the 11U ranking points table will be published in February 2020.
