Fred Wells Tennis & Education Center and USTA Northern offer a number of junior tournaments for players looking to take their game to the next level. Participating in junior tournaments supplements a player's tennis training, while providing opportunities for valuable match-play experience in both singles and doubles. They are also a great way to socialize with other tennis players. Play opportunities are either by skill level or age division and spread geographically throughout the Section.
Tournament play for ranking points is offered in the boys and girls 12's, 14's, 16's & 18's age divisions. For players ages 7-10, they will take part in our Stars and Trophies tournament system.
Stars and Trophies Tournaments (Ages 7-10)
The Fort is excited to be hosting monthly, one day non-elimination tournaments for players ages 7-10 as part of the USTA Northern's Stars and Trophies Youth Progression Pathway. Every third Friday of the month from September-May, we'll have a round robin, timed-match format tournament in which young players can get acquainted to competition and tournament play without a days-long commitment.
Play typically goes from 5:30-8:30 p.m., and players play 20-25 minute timed matches with breaks in between to rest and prepare for the next round. It's all about fun and good-natured competition!
Registration takes place through the USTA's TennisLink service by clicking here. Enter "The Fort" into the "Find a Tournament" box and all of our events will pop up for registration.
