Juniors must have a British Tennis Membership number (BTM) in order to play in any league event and be linked to the club in the 'Places to Play' section of the site. Please go to http://www.lta.org.uk/Members/Join/ and if you have any problems just let us know.
There are 6 teams this year. League dates are currently being worked on and our Junior team managers will be contacting those who have played in previous years, however if you are new to the club and/or wish to play in the teams, please contact them directly. The managers and their contact details are as follows :
12 & under girls, Isabelle Sutton: contact ?????
16& under boys, Hew Bruce-Gardyne ????
If you commit to playing in a game it is important that, as far as possible, you honour this as other team members and your club are counting on you!
GOOD LUCK with all your matches!!
Junior Competition Age Groups
The age group a player will compete in for the upcoming season will be determined by their age on the last date of that season - for this year's Aegon leagues, this will be 31st August 2019. The summer season runs from 1st April to 31st August and the winter season from 1st September to 31st March.
Junior Ratings Criteria
Yellow Ball Juniors start at a 10.2 rating and then need 4 qualifying wins to move up to a 10.1 rating. Another 4 wins will move them up to 9.2, then same again to 9.1, then again to 8.2.
From 8.2 upwards, a player will need 6 qualifying wins with a 60% win to loss ratio, to progress to the next level and this must be achieved within a ratings run period.
A qualifying win is a win against a player rated the same or higher, however a qualifying loss is only against players rated lower than you.
