JUNIOR PATHWAYS SERIES

A FRIENDLY TOURNAMENT FOR JUNIORS

Introducing the Melbourne Junior Pathways Series. Helping young tennis players easily transition into tournament play.

The Pathway Series gives young players a variety of match experience to prepare them for junior ranking tournaments. Competing tennis players should be between the ages of 9 and 15.

Entrants will play multiple round-robin matches and gain valuable match play experience. The final event of each series will be an knockout tournament to mirror how a Junior Tournament (JT) is conducted. Finally, entry for each event is $30.

How does it work?

Tournaments are played on a Saturday afternoon and run at Melbourne Park or Hume Community Tennis Centre. There are four series and each consist of five event days: four round robin events and one final.

Each tournament will consist of eight events over four age levels:

  • U/9 singles Boys and Girls Singles (Green Ball)
  • U/11 singles Boys and Girls Singles (Yellow Ball)
