British hopes may have been dashed in the Australian Open when Andy Murray was beaten in the quarterfinals by Roger Federer earlier this week but now it’s time for the Totally Tennis junior players to emulate their tennis heroes and compete in their own Australian Open event this Sunday.
As the Mens single finalists battle it out to win the first Grand Slam event of 2014 in Melbourne, the first TT Tour event of this year series takes place at the indoor centre in the War Memorial Park. The tournament is open to all squad players and all those who haven’t signed up yet and are interested in participating can book in reception or call the office on 01256 358816. The mini events will take place from 10:00am-12:30pm followed by the Junior event from 1:00pm – 3:30pm. Each event costs £6 per player.
The TT Tour is for Development Squad and Mini Performance Squads players (players will play against players of the same age group). There are eight tournaments throughout the year and the top eight players from each squad will be invited to play in the finals for the chance to win a trophy. There will be an up to date leaderboard showing players rankings.
