Start Competing

Junior Competitions at TennisPark University of Reading

After the success of our Mini Tennis Matchplay events in October half-term, we have put together a programme of age specific competitions here at the TennisPark. These competitions are LTA Grade 6 so perfect for players new to competition, or those who have competed before, and are looking to gain more match experience locally.

A message from Jamie and Richard, coaches at TennisPark Reading… “Competition is great fun and a vital part of a child’s tennis development. It is one of the most effective ways for a player to improve and gives them an accurate picture of where their skills are at the time”.

How does my child enter?
For those of you new to competitions, your child will need a 9-digit BTM (British Tennis Membership) player number and Mini Tennis Rating. These are free to get, and can be signed up online at https://www.lta.org.uk/member/signup/?product=child. Remember to select the venue where you child plays from the drop down venue list, and also when they ask if you if you would like a Mini Tennis Rating - click YES.

Once your child has a BTM number and rating, simply click the ENTER NOW buttons for your child's age group. Please check the date of birth rules to see what level your child should enter. There is a handy age group calculator here if you need help working out which age group your child can enter.
