Following the launch of the ITF Beach Tennis Junior Tour in January 2020, ITF is pleased to inform that four (4) official U18 tournaments have taken place so far across Brazil, Italy and Russia, with another five (5) tournaments confirmed to take place in Portugal and Russia later on in the year. Thank you to those nations who have embraced ITF Junior Beach Tennis in its launch year and have either applied to hold Junior events or expressed an interest to do so. ITF look forward to receiving further applications from legacy and new Beach Tennis nations.
Rankings: In the Junior Tour’s inaugural year, Rankings will be run every two (2) months and the first ITF Beach Tennis Junior Rankings will be published at the beginning of March. Depending on the number of tournaments throughout the year, the frequency of the Ranking release may be revised if necessary.
The Rankings, along with all other information relating to the Junior Tour, such as the calendar and draw sheets, will be published on the ITF Beach Tennis Facebook Group. ITF is working to fully digitalise the Junior Tour with the same features of the Pro Beach Tennis Tour (including website space, IPIN and Tournament Planner) by 1st January 2021.
