Tournaments

The 2015 Season begins September 27, 2014 and runs through September 20, 2015.

NEW IN THE 2015 SEASON: All players must submit a completed Season Waiver and once-per-season initiation fee to begin competing.

Players are welcome to begin entering the tournaments at any point during the season prior to the Masters.

 
SA Junior Tennis organizes the following tournaments:

Gran Prix INTRO (Suggested experience level: 10 tournaments played or less) Supplementary tournaments for new and inexperienced players, the INTRO tournaments give less experienced players an opportunity for additional tournament-setting match play between Gran Prixs. The format is slightly shorter and less demanding (a single pro set versus 2 out of 3 sets). (Standings points are not offered for the INTRO tournaments. To earn standings points, players must play regular Gran Prix divisions.)

Gran Prix: Tournaments that offer SA Junior Tennis Circuit local standings points. Select point earners are invited at the end of the season to compete in the Masters Invitational to determine final season winners. Eligibility: Three division types are typically offered. INTRO divisions (no standings points) are available for new or less experienced non-qualified players. Gran Prix divisions ages 10-16 are open to all players not qualified for the Championship/Super Championship divisions in Texas (same as ZAT level). And for Championship and Super Championship players, Super Open divisions 12/14 and 16/18 are open to all players. Players earn 4 points per main draw match won and 2 points per consolation match won.

Gran Prix Doubles: Doubles; same eligibility requirements as the Gran Prix singles tournaments. Mixed doubles divisions are also offered. Doubles wins earn 3 points per main draw match won and 1 points per consolation match won.

Gran Prix+: A 2X-points tournament for Gran Prix players which allows Champs players to compete in all divisions. Gran Prix+ players receive 8 points per main draw match won and 4 points per consolation match won.

Pass the Racquet: Relay doubles in which two players on a team must alternate who hits each shot by sharing one racquet and handing it off between shots. Adds an extra element of action to tennis.


AGE DIVISIONS: Age divisions for all SA Junior Tennis tournaments this season are based on the age a player will be on the future date of September 1, 2015.
