Top 32 players from across Great Britain compete in the Junior National Tennis Championships

• 2 MINUTE READ

Returning for the first time since 2019, owing to the pandemic, the LTA’s Junior National Championships are the highest level of domestic competition for junior tennis players in the country.

Last week saw Britain’s top junior players compete at the Nottingham Tennis Centre in the 12U and 14U Junior National Championships across both singles and doubles.

Returning for the first time since 2019, owing to the pandemic, the LTA’s Junior National Championships are the highest level of domestic competition for junior tennis players in the country.

The top 32 players competed in a round robin format with the leading two players from each group progressing through to the knockout stages. The winning players had to win through seven matches during the week to secure the coveted titles, the same number of matches a player must win on route to a grand slam title.

The atmosphere during the event was incredible and it was great to see so many players enjoying competitive matches

Attendees were also able to watch the LTA Summer National Tour for 10U and 11U which took place alongside the championships.
