MINI TOUR

Mini Tennis Players aged 10 & under (Mini Green), 9 & under (Mini Orange) & 8 & under (Mini Red) enter events throughout Devon to collect points towards a season leaderboard with the top 8 players invited to an end of seasons finals event in March & August. This competition was new for summer 2016 & replaced the Flybe events which saw so many Ilfracombe players reaching finals & Joe Cooper winning the 10 & under Green final in August 2014. At the Whirlwind Mini Tour winter finals in March 2017 Rodrigo Anzules-Argote won the 9 & under Orange event.

At the winter finals in March 2019 Reuben Bright won the 8 & under Red Whirlwind event, having also been the joint leaderboard winner with a maximum 1500 points

Beginners who have competed at the club only may also like to consider the new TEAM CHALLENGE events (see further below).
