Red Ball

In 2018, venues will be encouraged to run a Quorn Family Tennis Cup red ball competition between February 1 and April 30, 2018. The red ball competition usually lasts approximately 2 hours (dependent on number of pairs taking part). 

The winners of each red ball competition will earn the opportunity of a day out at a Quorn Family Tennis Cup event held on the qualifying weekend of a LTA grass court major event in June.

Each pair will have the chance to play against other winners on the day as well as watch the professional players in action.

Who can play in the 2018 red ball event?

Any child born 1 September 2007 or later (10U) playing with an adult family member* born 31 August 1999 or earlier (18+).

* Adult family member - parent, carer, guardian, step parent, co-parent, uncle, auntie, sibling or grandparent.

Are there any minimum requirements?

There is no minimum requirement in terms of the size of the venue and number of pairs who take part. Anybody from your venue may run the competition (e.g. coach, junior organiser or engaged parents). Each venue will be sent an organiser guide and pack which will contain full information on how to run the competition. The key requirement of each venue is access to mini tennis equipment (i.e. mini tennis nets, red balls and 21' or 23' rackets).

Sign up for the Red Ball event will open on December 4, 2017 and the deadline is January 30, 2018.
