Rogers Rookie Tour

The Rogers Rookie Tour is a national program designed to bridge the gap between entry-level tennis and the provincial competitive junior circuit. It’s a lot to ask a young person to jump from entry-level tennis to the provincial competitive junior circuit. The Rogers Rookie Tour makes that jump more of a step, allowing junior players to play competitive tennis at an introductory level suitable for their age. Depending on the age category, matches are played with progressive balls and on smaller courts:

  • 8&U – red ball; 1/2 court
  • U10 – orange ball; 3/4 court
  • U12 – green dot ball; full court
  • U14 – U18 – yellow/regular ball; full court

It is a fun way to start tennis and makes it easy for children to play the game, develop good technique and a love for the sport. Events could be combined boys and girls depending on the number of entries.

The Rogers Rookie Tour is for:

  • beginner-to-intermediate players who wish to compete for the first time
  • players who wish to compete at an introductory level
  • players who have not participated in any competitive events*

*players who have participated in five Future Stars events are not eligible to play in Rookie Tour.
