Quorn Family Tennis Cup Red Ball

The Quorn Family Tennis Cup (QFTC) is an informal, family doubles competition. Mini (10 and under) players play with an adult family member in a fun atmosphere at local venues. It encourages families to play tennis together, and eat healthy food to complement an active lifestyle.

Nearly 700 club events ran in 2019 with more than 8,000 players taking part and having fun!

  • We suggest a 1 to 2 hour fun competition between February and May
  • Children aged 10 and under play doubles with an adult family member*
  • Matches are played on mini tennis red sized courts with soft (red) balls
  • A small entry fee is encouraged so that venues cover their organiser costs

*Adult family member (18+ years) - parent, carer, guardian, step parent, co-parent, uncle, auntie, sibling or grandparent.

Who are these events for?

Players of any standard can play in these events.

The formats are designed to be fun and informal with adults on courts to help out if needed (and to have fun themselves!). Beginners to advanced players will all have a great time.

How do the Mini Festival Days work?

As an added bonus, the winning pair from each Mini Cub event will be invited to a Mini Festival Day hosted at an LTA Summer Grass Court event in June (e.g. Nature Valley Open, Nottingham).

To qualify for a Festival Day, the venue must submit results by midnight April 26, 2020.

The Festival Days include some more, fun family doubles tennis as well as goodies and prizes for all the junior players. After enjoying lunch, players and parents are free to enjoy the professional tennis taking place at whichever event they are visiting for the rest of the day.
