Regional Tennis Tour
The Junior Regional Tour is a series of Grade 3 tournaments taking place at some of the best regional venues across the country throughout the year.
So, whether you’re looking to play in 9U competitions right the way through to 18U, the Junior Regional Tour gives you a chance to play against a wide variety of different players to help you improve your skills.
Want to find and enter one of our Junior Regional Tour events? Here’s everything you need to know.
Players competing in 9U to 18U age groups can enter and play in our Junior Regional Tour events.
Players are then accepted into the draw based on either their recent form (9U – 10U) or on their LTA ranking (11U – 18U). Wild card spaces are also available, with one wild card for every eight spaces in the draw. Players must have entered an event to be considered for a wild card.
Regional Tour events are most suitable for players who are getting strong results at county level (Grade 4) tournaments or competing regularly in regional or national tournaments.
The Junior Regional Tour is split into a summer and winter calendar.
- Summer events – 1 April to 31 August
- Winter events – 1 September to 31 March
The Regional Tour is comprised of a mixture of weeklong Grade 3 competitions, which feature multiple events and usually take place during school holidays, and the LTA Staged Winter Regional Tour that takes place at weekends during the Winter season.
