Juniors take the challenge at Tewantin

Phoenix Jackson and and Brixton Furth take to the court.

More than 80 Juniors hit the courts at the Tewantin Tennis Club for the Sunshine Coast Junior Development Series Tournament over the weekend of 5th and 6th September. Entries this year came from South-East Queensland but mostly from the Sunshine Coast.

Nick Todorov, Tennis Queensland Club Development Officer for the Sunshine Coast said, “Perfect tennis weather meant that all matches were played on time with spectators able to enjoy the superb conditions at Tewantin”.

Junior Development Series tournaments are designed for the junior tennis player’s first introduction into tournament tennis. The series is broken up into regions throughout Queensland and Australia. The Under 9 and Under 11 events use modified balls to allow players a taste of tournament life from a younger age.
