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. The matches are played with slower red, orange and green balls on smaller courts. 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.
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.
Entry and Acceptance:
- Acceptance is first-come, first-served.
- Late entry may be accepted.
- Tournament Committee may cancel an event if there are insufficient entries.
