Saturday 7th September 3.30pm - TB10 CHALLENGER
Calling all 14U & 16U girls. Tie Break Tens have partnered with the LTA & WTA and we are delighted to be offering a TB10 Challenger tournament for 16U & 14U girls at Reed’s Tennis School on Saturday 7th September at 3.30pm. You may have seen the professional version of Tie Break Tens – well this is the grass roots version. No games, no sets, just a match in which EVERY POINT COUNTS.
The aim of this is to get girls playing and competing and the tie break format is really good fun and fast moving.
Whilst the pros play for big money, the girls have an amazing prize up for grabs – the National winner of each age group, plus a chaperone, will win the opportunity of a lifetime – an all-expenses paid trip to Shenzhen, China to take part in the WTA Future Stars programme, a tournament for some of the best young players in Asia; courtesy of the WTA.
The Winner and Runner Up in each age group at Reed’s will go through to the Regional Finals at Surbiton on 15th September 2-5pm. The Regional winners will go through to a National Final on 21st September at the National Tennis Centre and then the National Winner will play in the WTA Future Stars Programme ahead of the WTA Tour Finals in the October half term – 21st-27th in Shenzhen, China.
In each age group the girls will play a Tiebreak tournament – first to ten points with two clear points. The exact tournament format will be decided based on number of entrants – it may be round robin or knockout, but we will give the girls extra matches as much as possible for practice.
It’s a traditional tiebreak format with a few tweaks – at the start of each match, the players shall draw to decide who serves using the rock, paper, scissors method. (Did you see Wawrinka & Paire when playing doubles together use this to decide who took a deciding point last week in Montreal – great fun !) and there is a no let rule – so if the ball clips the net and then lands in the correct service box then the ball is considered in play.
The age group dates are:
Girls 14U – for players born 1 April 2005 – 31 March 2009
Girls 16U – for players born 1 April 2003 – 31 March 2009
You can play in both age groups if eligible.
It would be great to have as many girls playing as possible – those from our programme and those that came to summer camps too - it will be a fun event and all standards welcome. There will be a nominal entry fee to cover running it.
