Junior Tennis Competition

We work very hard at Harrogate Racquets to provide our junior tennis members with the opportunity to supplement their coaching with various competitive challenges. We feel that to get the best out of our younger members we want an enviroment where our players can practice the skills they learn in a coaching group and put them into a match play scenario. In doing this we run several Junior Competitions at different stages of the year.

 

Weekly in-house Match Play

Every Saturday we endevaour to run a weekly tournament between 4.00-7.00pm. These tournaments are aimed at various age groups and count towards a players LTA rating. The competing juniors can expect to play several matches (usually using a timed tennis format) and work towards improving their ratings.

 

Open LTA graded Tournamnets

In 2018 we aim to introduce the first open tournaments to Harrogate Racquets Club. These will be LTA graded events (starting at the grade 5 level) and will allow other juniors to compete against juniors within the club. These tournaments will allow everyone to work towards both their LTA rating, and their LTA ranking.

 

Box Leagues & Ladders

We always try to ensure that we have some kind of box league or ladder available to the juniors; this allows our club juniors to arrange times to play matches against each other outside of a more formal setting.
