Junior Team Tennis in Singapore kicked off the year with a MAJOR slam! Or should I say MINI slam? In conjunction with the first Grand Slam of the year(Australian Open), JTT launched Grand Slam MINI Melbourne and FAST4 U12 at United World College, Dover this past Sunday morning. Our RED MINI players jetted to “Australia”, with their brand new passports and had a really exciting morning of timed round-robin matches. They used a point by point system and were spread out on 12 mini courts. The FAST4 U12 event was also round-robin based, using a shortened format of first to 4 games per set. This event was globally launched in Sydney with Roger Federer and Lleyton Hewitt. It has since been be showcased by a host of other champions including Rafael Nadal, Fernando Verdasco, Gael Monfils, Nick Kyrgios and many more!
Congratulations to all our players that competed in both these events. We are so excited to see so much talent and dedication to the sport at such a young age. Thank you parents and guardians for all that you do in order to get these junior players out on the tennis court. Our roaming umpires and coordinators did an amazing job in encouraging all players to be independent and practice good sportsmanship on the tennis court. This included picking up their own balls, scoring, and conducting proper etiquette as a tennis player. Not only does this help build their confidence, we also want to prepare these junior players for their future, on and off the tennis court. Rankings from MINI Melbourne is now up on the website.
